Cocolobo is described by Anagrama – the multidisciplinary design agency behind their new visual identity – as a ‘high-end shopping boutique that caters exclusively to strong women with a confident and in vogue fashion sense’. For the name, Anagrama played with the patrons’ ‘characteristic duality’, with a ‘catchy and fun’ compounding of  “Coco” (coconut in Spanish) and “lobo” (Spanish for wolf), which helped to define the ‘Cocolobo woman’ as ‘not only feminine and sweet, but also independent, aggressive, sensuous and daring’

The agency captured and conveyed this duality in print through the combination of a black and white colour palette ‘portraying the elegant, sober aspect of the brand’, a red highlight to represent ‘all that is feminine and chic’, and the contrast of the logo’s playful familiarity and the logotype’s sense of exclusivity. These run across business cards, stationery, swing tags and packaging.

Although I would not have described the project as particularly reflective of the aggressive or daring nature of the ‘Cocolobo woman’, Anagrama have managed, through size and pattern, the tactile, high and subtle craft qualities of an uncoated, debossed material texture and foil print finish, to infuse a distinctive and proprietary quality into the very generic form of a heart. This universality has been appropriately tempered by the conventional but high-fashion sensibilities of the well-spaced, uppercase characters of a modern serif logo-type, the borders you might associate with Chanel and the timeless restraint of a black, white and cream colour palette.

Support BP&O



Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
