Delivering a Strong Narrative for a Leader in Cocoa Sustainability

Following our redesign of World Cocoa Foundation's brand, the philanthropic leader asked MSDS to redesign their annual report to better tell their story, communicate the challenges to cocoa sustainability, and reinforce their status as the global leader in helping meet them. We worked with WCF on content and design to educate about the global cocoa economy, reinforce WCF's commitment to farmers and agricultural research, and showcase their results.

The
Client's
Take

“MSDS's work expanding and improving our communications has made an immediate impact—not just with our members and partners, but internally as well. We now project as the influential global organization we are. What stood out immediately is how well they embraced understanding our programs and our mission, then translated it into design and messaging that really differentiates us.”

– Bill Guyton, President
