Batllegroup has updated the ColaCao branding to connect with the new generations that ask for more closeness and transparency. In the packaging they incorporate an enveloping storytelling through the illustration, which tells us the story and the origin of ColaCao.
Batllegroup proposed a cleaner and more natural image, where the illustration, colors and typographies are updated, evolving the iconic image of ColaCao to maintain total recognition. They sought to convey a simple and honest naturalness, without showing too much promise. They do it through the cocoa tree, which transports us to the place and the origin of the ingredient. This has been the concept that has served as the basis for the redesign of the ColaCao packaging, including the illustration of the collectors.
They understand the illustration in the packaging as a vehicle to explain the story of ColaCao, which goes from the collection to the selection of cocoa, and that wraps the jar giving a 360 ° effect. In the back, the illustration connects with the explanation of the cocoa process, from its collection to the ColaCao in your milk glass.
The sun, which in the previous design acquired much prominence and served as an element of subjection of the logo, becomes simplified and integrated into the landscape, transporting us to the moment of collection, the sunrise. The warm colors are faithful to the previous design, although slightly desaturated. Especially the yellow background, which has softened to bring naturalness to the design.
