Helmed by founder and Head of Inventive Jolene Delisle, The Working Meeting operates with a clear-eyed mission and powerful ethical compass guiding their tasks and the shoppers they work with.

Delisle and co. prolonged the colours and illustrations designed for the product to the Narra web site they created in tandem, integrating hover results and an unscrambling illustration recreation within the web site footer. The tone of those playful hues and motifs comes by within the copy as properly, which units Narra aside from most different manufacturers within the tear class. “So many different canned lattes lean right into a refined tone that may really feel inaccessible,” mentioned Erik Poh, Senior Copywriter. “As quickly as we tried Narra, we knew it wanted a extra playful voice to match its mild and pleasant taste.”
