Rising Chefs


Education, Culinary Arts

Rising Chefs emerged from the vision of a Toronto-based single mother who recognized her children’s enthusiasm for cooking. Her idea was to create a cooking school specifically for kids, a place where basic cooking skills and nutritional knowledge could be taught in a fun, engaging environment. The challenge was to develop a brand identity that would resonate with both children and their parents, emphasizing the joy and educational value of cooking.

New Design Group took on the task of crafting a vibrant brand identity for Rising Chefs. Our goal was to blend playfulness with practicality, creating an inviting space for learning:

    • Logo Design: We created a cheerful and colorful logo featuring a cartoon chef that appeals to children’s love for animated characters while also symbolizing the joy of cooking.
    • Social Media Presence: Recognizing the importance of engaging with the community, we established social media accounts with branding that mirrored the warmth and friendliness of the logo. These platforms became a showcase of the children’s culinary creations and a hub for parent testimonials.
    • Website Design: We developed an interactive website that serves as a virtual doorway into the world of Rising Chefs, with bright colors, easy navigation, and information on classes, schedules, and the philosophy behind the school.
    • Brochures and Pamphlets: To reach out to parents and kids, we designed informative brochures and fun pamphlets that could be distributed at local events, schools, and community centers, detailing the curriculum, benefits, and enrollment process.
    • Merchandising: We produced a line of kid-friendly kitchen tools and merchandise such as aprons, cooking utensils, and recipe books branded with the Rising Chefs logo, making the cooking experience more personal and memorable.

Rising Chefs was warmly received by the community, quickly becoming a popular destination for young aspiring chefs. The brand identity encapsulates the essence of what the school represents: a nurturing place to discover culinary skills, imbued with fun, creativity, and a dash of whimsy.

The success of Rising Chefs illustrates the power of a well-thought-out brand identity that speaks directly to its audience, both in visual appeal and in practical application. Through comprehensive branding—from logo to learning materials—Rising Chefs has established itself as a cornerstone of culinary education for children in Toronto.
