Russell Stover is one of the most beloved chocolate brands in North America. They opened their doors back in 1923 and have produced high-quality chocolate with innovative and unique business practices ever since.

Russell Stover uses unique package design and tailored sales materials to drive sales at grocery stores, specialty chocolate stores, and online retailers. To deliver the highest quality product and customer experience possible, they're always looking for areas of improvement.
Before Brandfolder, Russell Stover used a traditional in-house server to store and manage their digital assets. This server's outdated taxonomy and organization was inherited by Jeff Stapleton, Senior Graphic Designer, and the current group of creatives.
Jeff found that Brandfolder created clear organization of his digital assets while remaining flexible for a variety of users. Brandfolder's single source of truth made the sales, marketing, and design teams more efficient.
Russell Stover now powers their brand with features like:
By giving teams access to the right file at the right time, Brandfolder helps Jeff and Russell Stover further their tradition of crafting great, innovative chocolates.
A member of the sales team can search right within Brandfolder and quickly find new product shots. Those product shots are easily shareable on social media or with retailer partners through custom decks. Days filled with paperclipping designs together and endlessly clicking around disorganized folders are long gone.
Russell Stover has powered a product redesign, improved the workflow between marketers and creatives, and employed their existing digital assets more frequently with Brandfolder. Any time that Jeff used to spend turning pngs into jpegs is now spent aligning the go-to-market team and empowering his team to do their best creative work.
In Jeff's own words, "I was never afraid to switch to Brandfolder, because I knew that the way we were doing it was not working anymore. And you cannot be afraid, as a big company or even a small company, to progress. You need that; you need to grow."
