Godiva is a global, almost 100 year old chocolate company founded in Brussels in 1926. The business engaged us to help launch the brand in Australia, with their first flagship store set to be opened in Melbourne’s CBD.


Godiva– Launching the 100 year old brand in Australia

For this project, Godiva required a tweak to their brand identity and a story for the Australian market. Working with the leadership team, we implemented a strategy for this project that leveraged the company’s origin story by weaving brand mythology with a relevant contemporary Australian identity.

The key to the success of this project was to interpret the global brand of Godiva and curate a narrative specific to the Australian market. As chief brand guardian, our established connections within the design and marketing industry were crucial to bringing this brand to life in Australia.








In his words: “DIAZ DAVIS and their team bring a stand out voice and vision to the cause; they’re passionate and committed. This certainty and emotional intelligence in a action is a strong force for premium brands.” — Shane Hills, GM  Godiva Australia
