Under the sea

We wanted the website to champion the main ingredient, kelp. By creating bespoke illustrations of kelp for the homepage hero’s under-water scene, users can immediately understand what Akua is about after landing on the homepage.

Intriguing and informing

Kelp Jerky is new to the world which is why it was super important for the website to be as engaging and informative as possible. We created custom illustrations, including their mascot otter, along with colourful infographics to help the user understand what kelp is and why we should buy into it.

Responsible and responsive

The Akua website is fully responsive so you can easily order your kelp snacks on the go.

"Their original artwork is fantastic. The team is timely and sweet to work with."
