Branding Design and Development

Task – Branding Design and Development

CocoaFab delivers up-to-the-minute reporting, exclusive access to the hottest stars, an original video series and a robust social media community to plug their trendsetting audience into the hottest topics every day. Developed on a WordPress platform, the site is fully customizable and able to give users breaking news, current hot topics and various features in an easy to use drag and drop interface.

We kicked off the design process by creating a logo that is feminine, classy, and swanky. From there, we designed a very clean site layout that encourages content to stand on its own and a complimentary brand color scheme that adds some serious attitude. One of the biggest hurdles was designing and developing a site that is constantly changing – streamlining image sizes, fonts and accents to be flexible and flawless for Team CocoaFab. Once the site moved to development we began working with the awesome people at Automattic’s WordPress VIP for top notch code review and hosting. We are currently working with some new technologies, platforms, and widgets to bring the most up-to-date web elements to the CocoaFab audience.

“Matchbox Design Group took our vision for CocoaFab.com, and our new digital network, and made it a drop-dead gorgeous reality. Couldn’t have worked with a nicer or more creative group of people.”
