Bringing two stories and melting it into one sound brand strategy for a new amplified chocolate brand.
Intro Insight Idea Impact
Chocolate performance

Conchōbar is a new brand of functional chocolate. Chocolate with ingredients that have performance enhancing qualities. These amplified ingredients each have their own function: CBD for enhancing your overall well-being, lion’s mane for more focus, cordyceps for more vitality and reishi to encourage relaxation. Four ingredients available in a chocolate bar, milk and dark chocolate. Carefully dosed to the right amount of function with each piece.

Surfer meets Scientist
When we first heard about the founders’ passions —besides chocolate— it sounded like two complete opposites: surfing and science. But at second glance, functional chocolate appears to be the one thing that connects one to the other. The story of surfing being Conchōbar’s very reason for existence and science making the brand a responsible choice for consuming amplified chocolate.

In Favor of Flow
This is a story about a surfer and a scientist turned chocolatiers amplifying their chocolate with functionality. It’s all about getting body and mind in sync and awakening senses beyond the point of distraction. Tasty, ethical and perfectly dosed chocolate in ‘Favor of Flow’. We wanted to create a raw yet sophisticated brand with subtle Celtic references, as the owners have Irish blood running through their veins. We used the old Irish Ogham alphabet as an inspiration for a monogram. Combined with the bitmap images, it amplifies the crafty vibe within the design and balances out the scientific approach to functionality.
