Meaning and history

Sublime (chocolate) Logo history

One of the main “sweet” companies on the Latin American market, D’Onofrio, was established in 1859, and named after its founder, Pietro D’Onofrio. For more than a century the company has been producing chocolate, ice-creams, and sweet snacks, and only in 1997 D’Onofrio was bought by the Peruvian daughter of Nestle company. Right after the acquisition, the label introduced Sublime, a new brand of chocolate bars, which has become one of the best-selling chocolate in the region.

Today Nestle Peru has a strong share not only in the country’s chocolate market but on the whole continent. D’Onofrio is still a very significant name in the local market, with its roots and traditions, highly recognizable and respected by the citizens of Latin America.

What is Sublime?

1997 – 2018

Sublime (chocolate) Logo 1997

The original Sublime logo was created in 1997 and stayed with the chocolate brand for more than twenty years. It was bold stylized lettering, placed diagonally and underlined in the same style as the bars of the characters. The unscripted was set in a rounded sans-serif typeface with a smooth and deep shade of blue accompanied by small white strokes, which added volume and lightness to the composition.

The redesign of 2018 has made the Sublime badge look even friendlier. The style of the lettering remained the same, but now the inscription is set horizontally, with the bottom part arched from the center, and the underline creating a kind of a smile. The color of the characters was also refined, with a lighter tone of blue replacing the deep one. The white strokes were removed, and now the inscription looks completely flat, placed against a plain white background. The only bright and voluminous element in the logo is a red Nestle badge, placed in the upper left corner of the composition.

The closest fonts to the one, used in this insignia, are, probably, Crowd Funded Regular, or Ravager Sans Regular, but with significant modifications of the contours.

As for the color palette of the Sublime visual identity, it is based on a light shade of blue, which is usually associated with confidence, reliability, and care. While the red stroke is a symbol of love and warmth.
