Growing Support to Ensure Cocoa Sustainability

As part of an integrated rebranding, World Cocoa Foundation asked MSDS to strengthen a website that was failing to communicate their global impact. We partnered with the global nonprofit to develop interactive and content strategies that more effectively tell their story—putting cocoa farmers and their communities first and convening WCF's 90+ member companies, research institutes and governments to advance cocoa sustainability and strengthen the global cocoa economy.

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
