The Institute for Integrative Nutrition was founded 30 years ago based on a remarkable and innovative vision for health. Since then, the organization has grown into one of the largest and most influential players in the space.

With a stream of fresh offerings in the market, the institute reached out to UME to reposition its signature Health Coach Training Program and help them maintain their edge.

Furthermore, it includes color gradients in order to create interesting transitions and serves as an ownable treatment that differentiates the product.
