Erica McDermott & Co

Holistic nourishment for women & babies– The natural way. Erica McDermott is a privately practicing Holistic Nutritionist focusing on prenatal to postpartum care for mothers and children.

I helped Erica McDermott create a visual identity for her holistic nutrition practice that focuses on pre to post-pregnancy wellness. The brand features imagery of mothers and babies, along with comforting textures and fabrics and a more saturated earth-tone palette to create a feeling of natural living.

The Visual Identity


Through iteration with the Erica, I created a mark that features natural themes, framed within a geometric pane. The backing color can be changed for different themes, or left out for a minimal approach.
