A System Worth Craving.

A portfolio strategy was established to elevate the role of the beloved Hershey’s masterbrand in relationship to each of the flavor-driven sub-brand offerings. Respectful of the brand’s successful equity assets, we made evolutionary shifts to the brand identity and color palette to enhance shoppability. Meanwhile, a revolutionary introduction of product photography was incorporated to amplify appetite appeal.

Iconic Brand. Iconic Bar.

For the first time in brand history, the Hershey’s chocolate bars are proudly featured on packaging. The product photography simultaneously serves as a unifying brand element as well as a deliciously differentiating product signifier. By heroing the product and improving brand hierarchy, we balance brand pride with product pride, ultimately resulting in enhanced craveability that drives consideration.
