More on the comprehensive wayfinding package we designed with partners EVM soon.Read More

Edinburgh-based COCO is very good at making chocolate. But they needed a clear brand position: their own unique space in a competitive industry.
Initially, COCO was using striking geometric stock designs to wrap its chocolate bars. We felt that the relationship between art and chocolate could be built upon as a real point of difference at the heart of the brand. From this idea we developed the brand line ‘The Art of Chocolate’. We have completed a full brand re-position, packaging range, e-commerce site and variety of POS / promotional materials for COCO and are working on some amazing new projects with them. Much more to come soon. See the full project.Read More
