CACAO DESIGN: CREATIVE STUDIO IN MILAN
BRANDING, COMMUNICATION AND GRAPHIC DESIGN
Cacao Design is a multidisciplinary agency with a strong expertise in naming, logos, visual identity, catalogues, brochures, packaging, booths, events and BtL (Below the Line) materials, as well as videos, digital and web design, covering all brand needs.
Born in 2004 in Milano, it has since then been managed by a unique Creative Director consisting of the three founders, Alessandro Floridia, Masa Magnoni e Mauro Pastore, friends, colleagues and partners for almost 30 years.
Synergy and complementarity are the real strengths of the team, which is internally composed by 10 designers and a solid network of trusted collaborators such as copywriters, motion graphic designers, movie directors, video editors, photographers, illustrators, UX designers, software developers, printers and many others. Visit the PORTFOLIO section and let the projects tell the rest.
Cacao Design’s projects are focused on the concept and the brands’ values: the Essence before the Shape. This choice has led us to obtain prizes and recognitions at several top-rated contests and international design magazines: ADI Design Index, Creativity International Print & Packaging Design Awards, IDA International Design Award, How, ReBrand, Novum, Graphis, Kak, Gold Ink, TDC Type Directors Club, Red-Dot, LogoLounge, D&AD Design and Art Direction Award, Ed-Awards, Zgraf, ADCI Art Directors Club Italiano, C2A Creative Communication Award. Recently DesignRush, known for the video design awards, selected the Cacao video and published it in the “Best Showreel Videos” section. Recently DesignRush placed Cacao Design in first place of the Italian “Top Web Design Companies” and awarded its reel as “Best Showreel Videos” worldwide.
The three partners themselves have been jury members or speakers at several design events (ReBrand in Rhode Island, Syzigy in Barcelona, Graphic Stories in Cyprus).
