Building a kinder, less wasteful world.
Imperfect Foods brought us into the fold during an explosive growth phase to help revitalize the design, tone, content, and overall information hierarchy of their marketing website. Following a successful launch of the new site, we then turned our eyes to the future with Imperfect, and through a hugely collaborative effort, ideated, refined, and stitched together a product roadmap for the years to come.
Imperfect Foods is a sustainably-sourced online grocer with a mission to save food from going to waste, and evolve the myriad systems and inefficiencies that originate waste along the way.
“Make&Model were the perfect partners for Imperfect Foods. We were blown away by the depth and breadth of their creativity and commitment - truly, no stone was left unturned. There is so much uncharted territory to navigate in a company's growth stages and they helped us do so with empathy and grace.”
