As part of its 2014 Valentine’s Day campaign in Japan, Godiva asks customers to use good old facial language instead of fingers to send a message of love to their dear ones. The chocolate brand has teamed up with Saatchi & Saatchi Fallon Tokyo to let the traditionally reserved Japanese express their emotions freely and forget about common “poker face” expression at least for the festive period.

Following in the footsteps of L’Oréal and UNESCO, which are celebrating female leaders in a range of scientific industries with their Women in Science award and International Fellowships, GODIVA Chocolatier is presenting is debut project of this kind dubbed the Lady GODIVA Program to pay tribute to social advocates in communities across the globe. Chocolate has been associated with something nice and calming, which helps to overcome problems, making the life a bit brighter. The new program is seeking people who do the same to their communities and embody the Lady Godiva nature “through selflessness, generosity, leadership and the spirit of giving-back to the community, support the causes that matter to women, both globally and locally, and inspire others to give back as well.”

Design of venue locations is as important as the look of the product itself, and knowing that celebrated international brands from time to time revamp the store design of its major retail stores (Nike, Converse, Burger King and Levi’s to name a few). D-ash Design, a New York-based environmental design firm, has created new interiors in dark browns and bright creams for new flagship venues of international chocolate-maker Godiva, which is celebrating its 85th anniversary this year.

The famous  chocolate brand Godiva is encouraging its fans to share love through the specifically created mini-site Godiva Give Love. It gives the users a chance to send a virtual Valentine card today and automatically get the chance of getting a prize — a pair of identical special edition 36-piece Godiva Valentine Day Ballotins, one for the winner and one for his or her dearest person.
