LINDOR Gets a Facelift

Since 1949, Lindt’s most recognized brand has evolved into one of the highest-quality chocolate products on the market and continues to remain innovative in its design and flavor offerings.   Every 10 years, LINDOR undergoes a global design facelift and for the 2011 launch, Lindt USA proudly lead the efforts.  The newer design is described as a “modern classic” by the Lindt team and consists of a more feminine look, while still utilizing LINDOR’s familiar color schemes.

See how the LINDOR brand has evolved throughout the years:

1949: Launch of LINDOR tablet in Switzerland. This tablet included the originally soft-melting recipe (“mit zartschmelzender Füllung”)
Late 1950’s: The lace – a traditional pattern of the renowned Swiss textile industry in St. Gallen, Switzerland was incorporated into the LINDOR design.
1967: The idea came up in Germany to produce truffles with the LINDOR recipe as a Christmas tree decoration.
1969: The LINDOR truffle was included into the year-round product portfolio in Switzerland and produced on permanent basis.
1980’s: The LINDOR brand continued to grow using the same recipe and designs over many years which was supported by advertising campaigns mainly included in print.
1987: The product line began expanding with the introduction of the dark LINDOR truffles.
1998: The introduction of LINDOR’s dark and white tablet.
1996: LINDOR presented itself in a new graphic design incorporating traditional coherent elements both on truffles and tablet packaging.
