This was CAO's branding and presentation when we first met them.
The great photography of John Chiasson threw new light on the owners and how they presented themselves.
Our work included trade show presence for both the premium cigar brands and CAO's flavored cigars.
It was really fun to design, develop and produce the broad range of brands under CAO's roof.
CAO's brands range from traditional "heritage" brands they already had at the outset of our collaboration, many of which we re-worked like Gold and Maduro, to very modern futuristic and high tech brands like Vision.
We even did a few brands associated with popular HBO tv series'.
The results of our collaboration with CAO were:
a rapid expansion of CAO's brand recognition
a new reputation as an industry leader
a lucrative buyout by an international conglomerate
extensive media coverage in industry magazines, journals and blogs.
