Rainbow Cone is a family-owned legacy company delivering unique and quality ice cream flavors to the Chicago community for over 95 years. Their signature five-in-one ice cream flavor combination is a unique feature met with an exclusive serving technique that hasn’t been done anywhere else.

Rainbow Cone’s original signature ice cream cone features five delicious flavors – chocolate, strawberry, Palmer House, pistachio, and orange sherbet that are sliced (not scooped) into one deliciously flavorful cone.


As the trusted and beloved ice cream shop in Chicago, Rainbow Cone approached our team with the challenge of evolving their brand to adapt to changing demographics in the area. The client desired a refresh that would resonate with the broader audiences of Chicago while maintaining the essence of their established family style identity.


With an established, one-of-a-kind product that delivers both looks and taste, our branding team worked on a brand identity that would uphold the unique features and family values that Rainbow Cone represents.

A Dynamic and Delicious Brand Identity
Champ’s creative team aimed to establish a brand identity that was timeless and traditional to the Rainbow Cone’s family origin. We wanted the branding to highlight the almost 100 years of ice cream while inviting a wider audience to engage and enjoy the brand.

Our branding team strategized an identity that reflected Rainbow Cone’s commitment to timeless moments – Sharing with our community the taste and experience of the iconic 5-flavor ice cream cone that’s made with joy and served with a smile. Tying in the family history of this Chicago-based ice cream shop, our branding team created the tagline, Ice cream sliced with a smile since 1926.

All marketing and copywriting assets delivered to Rainbow Cone followed the newly established branding guidelines.

This new group of fonts was chosen to represent a traditional yet energetic brand. The brand voice is approachable and inviting and reflects an enthusiastic, charming, and friendly tone. The branding color palette represents each of the five flavors of Rainbow Cone’s signature ice cream cone.

Our design team created a new logo for Rainbow Cone that reflects the longstanding history of the company’s identity and how the brand is adapted toward with a more modern twist.

Playful New Package & Print Design
With new colorful and flavorful branding guidelines, we worked with Rainbow Cone to create an engaging packaging and print design to follow.

Our print and packaging team worked on a package design that would reflect a modern aesthetic on the store shelves while maintaining the nostalgic elements cherished by their loyal customer base.

This included designing menus for the ice cream shop’s drive-thru and in-store menus, as well as printed menus for pop-up tents and events. Our design team also created new packaging for Rainbow Cone’s Cake Boxes and to-go products.

Branded merchandise like t-shirts, stickers, and hats were revamped with this new branding, and quickly became favored by their loyal customers!

Enchanting Retail Signage
In the essence of Rainbow Cone’s new design and branding identity, Champ also designed exterior signage that would reflect their brand and reach a wider audience.

Our agency created a refreshing and captivating physical presence that echoed the vibrant colors and friendly identity of Rainbow Cone. This signage decorated the exterior of this Chicago ice cream shop!

Transforming a User-Friendly Online Experience
Rainbow Cone’s website also underwent a complete redesign to enhance user experience and align with this new and friendly brand identity. Our website development team built out a user-friendly design in Rainbow Cone’s vibrant brand colors. A photoshoot with the brand resulted in high-quality photography that they could then use across a variety of marketing materials and channels.
