Mon Choco’s branded story

Mon Choco‘s brand, created by Mexican design and branding company, Futura, tickles the tastebuds and delights the visual senses.

Based in Ivory Coast, Mon Choco celebrates working with cocoa for generations. Futura created a beautiful pattern/illustration that tells the story about the people of Ivory Coast and the way they harvest the cocoa, respecting the traditions in order to make delicious versions of chocolate. This same illustration is then used as a texture in all the packaging versions. The rest of the branding solution represents the high quality of the products by giving the sensation of luxury.

Truffle pig – An oculus experience

Prepare for an adventure, a visual journey that is mesmerisingly enchanting and tickles the eye. The Truffle Pig – An Oculus Experience is a magical world of virtual reality created by the marvellous Gentleman Scholar storytelling team. Oh boy, it looks like a treat – better download and play!

We are constantly dreaming of stories. Small stories, tall tales, long journeys – anything that feels like an adventure. With Truffle Pig, we created an existential journey through the life of a man (we named him Gustav) and his pet truffle pig. The entire project started from one beautiful landscape painting created by our talented design team, and ultimately evolved into an all-encompassing dive into the magical world of VR. We used the full mixed-media approach that is at our core, utilizing everything from 2D character animation, design and development, to our fully environmental and textural CG landscape chops.

Read more about Gustav’s world here.

MOCA

MOCA is an architecture and design office working out of São Luís, Brazil. Creation, for MOCA Architecture, is to organise space possibilities within an environment. Each unique project generates a new composition, uniting visuality and results in a functional way.

 

Working with the concept of form/counter form and a modernist aesthetic, Miligrama Design’Rebeca PradoRodrigo Gondim and Victor Garcia created a modular logotype, where each empty spaces combination generates a different composition. As an expansion of this system they utilised the typography itself as pattern, where the empty spaces become filled shapes on the stationery verse.
