Cadbury alters iconic chocolate wrapper typography

Iconic chocolate company Cadbury's have introduced a new look. What do you make of it?

Cadbury have one of the most iconic logos and packaging design around - with that signature purple wrapper and glass and a half logo. Here, they've unveiled their new look, created by Pearlfisher and inspired by the idea of 'say what you see' and replace product shots with 'imaginative, joyful expressions of each flavour'.

Brighter colours have been introduced along with a new font to highlight the brand's on-shelf appeal. The new packaging also uses an on-pack QR code which will deliver "joyful content designed to make people smile", according to Cadbury.

It's the brands 21st major redesign since it launched Dairy Milk 108 years ago, and creates "a more modern and joyful look, while proudly keeping the identity that has been a part of its heritage since 1905".
