A handcrafted, small batch frozen dessert searching for an identity
Strategy Branding Marketing Social Media Design Design & Development Analytics & Insights
How can you make another dairy-free dessert stand out from the competition? That’s the question we set out to answer. Our aim was to handcraft a new brand identity for DiNoci from the ground up, bringing their brand into being – both on and offline – from the shelf to the web.
DiNoci is derived from Italian, meaning “of nuts”. We used the simplicity and purity of ingredients as the guiding light for our visual identity and brand strategy. From brand voice to visual identity, market launch strategy, messaging, content and social strategy – we kept true to the core of DiNoci’s simplicity and purity.
Our step-by-step, collaborative discovery process ensured that we focused on the key differentiating factors of DiNoci as a premium dairy-free dessert that does not compromise on taste. Through competitive analysis, persona creation and in depth consumer research, our insights became the driving force in our efforts to bring DiNoci to life.

Small batch, handcrafted frozen dessert deserves original, handcrafted photography.

Their knowledge of social media and how it is being used to attract, track, and engage clients is remarkable. They are very client focused and understand the challenges of getting a new product introduced to the potential users whether that be on a small local basis or on a broad national platform. They have been working with our small start-up company to develop a marketing plan. Their photographic work is excellent and adds such a professional and taste-sensual feeling to the project. In a step-by-step manner they put together a plan that was easily understood and very presentable to our team and potential investors. They did an excellent job of analyzing our selected markets, major competitors, and specific end-users for our non-dairy frozen dessert. One of the most impressive parts of the project was how they could develop a website and integrate it with a variety of social media platforms that were available to a wide range of potential customers. The assistance with packaging design and labels was top notch and helped us create product awareness that made the product highly desirable to prospective users.— Bruce Wiesley, DiNoci - Dairy Free Frozen Dessert Executive VP
