CocoaBella Chocolates brand design by Stir and Enjoy

January 10th, 2014 by retail design blog

Not chocolatiers themselves, the owners of this unique San Francisco chocolate operation source and sell the finest representations of regional chocolate-making styles from around the world. Though well-established in the Bay Area and online, CocoaBella lacked a story or a look, feel and voice that helped better tell it.

Many of the chocolates in their shops came from European countries steeped in chocolate history and tradition, while others are from more adventurous modern artisans in the U.S. and Canada, like Christopher Elbow. We helped CocoaBella find their essence in that balance: Discovery. Here was one place where you could experience chocolate styles and flavors from around the world.

The resulting brand design and extensions are strong, clean and updated, but patterns, signage and language reflect a respect for where it all started. The project was an extensive packaging and organizational challenge, in that the business offers multiple box sizes and ever-changing collections and confections. It required a flexible, adaptable system because new chocolatiers are sourced annually.
