“We Canadians have many traditions; amongst them is the sugar cream fudge. Recipes are passed down from generation to generation and remain a staple in our Christmas holidays and also remain a not so commercialized sweet. A simple recipe made from brown sugar and cream, mixed and cooled off before being chopped into cubes like regular chocolate fudge. When it came to the packaging of this traditional sweet, I wanted to stay close to our canadian roots, reminiscent of our past; the lumberjack and hunter jacket. The concept would be that the sugar cream fudge be moulded in the form of the buttons, as if they were the coat’s buttons themselves. The outside packaging would represent the manliness of each Canadian and the inside lace would represent the sweet and reassuring aspect of all Canadian women.”

“Dark and pure, rich and honest, funny and crazy … as long as it says Barú on the outside, you know you’re in for a delicious treat. Drawing inspiration from Barú’s finest fluffy, swirly and nutty chocolates and sipping from their sensational chai tea, Creneau International designed a range of packaging that put the funk back in the chocolate and the glee back in the tea.
The best chocolates are little bites of happiness and the designers wanted the packaging to show just that. Adorned with retro colours and patterns, central to each wrapping is the signature element of the brown rectangular bar with the round Barú logo in it. The packaging features an array of typefaces reflecting the crazy playfulness and wonderful taste sensations.”

“Moonstruck Chocolate asked us to help them name and develop a packaging system for a new chocolate covered fruits and nuts product line. Tumbled™ was the name that quickly rose to the top of the naming list and was much improved over the industry standard term of Chocolate Covered. The container study was a long, multi-faceted process which led us to a very unique, custom box shape. Oregon’s Western Meadowlark became a die-cut reveal to showcase the often iridescent coatings of the different tumbled products. Red illustration for dark chocolate and blue illustration for milk chocolate helps discerning consumers find their preference quickly at retail. Also integrated into the packaging design are a beaver, more Western Meadowlarks, a salmon, Mt. Hood, Doug Fir trees and of course, last but not least, a Sasquatch, which can be found on all of the new Moonstruck packaging by Sandstrom Partners. The Sasquatch is hidden in a different location for each flavor of the Tumbled Chocolate packaging line. Cut paper style Illustration by Kate Forrester.”

“A great deal of heart goes into every piece of chocolate at John & Kira’s. Their exquisite products are made by hand with the finest ingredients available from local and family farms. “Real people, really good chocolates” is not only their tagline, it’s their business philosophy. The chocolate boxes needed to appeal to a wide audience; from the thoughtful fancy food lover, to the impulsive farmer’s market shopper. And the goal of Studio AG was to create a system of boxes that communicated the core values of the company.
For the chocolate consumer; the packaging represents the handcrafted and careful aesthetic instilled in the John & Kira’s brand. For the chocolatier; the system of boxes is extremely versatile and can be efficiently assembled easily during busy seasons.”

“These chocolates were designed in cooperation with chocolate artist Henrik Konnerup.
12,000 pieces of chocolate have been produced – 1,000 large boxes. Every piece of chocolate weighs 50 grams and can be divided into four squares, each mould with the Brandhouse symbol in the middle. All 12,000 pieces are handmade.
Every piece of chocolate and each packages design has the same characteristics as the archetypes, thereby showing how to create the personality of the brand through product development as well as packaging design.”

“Moonstruck Single Origin Peruvian Fortunato No.4 chocolate bar packaging. Moonstruck Chocolate is a Portland, Oregon based company known for making premium handcrafted truffles. This chocolate bar packaging is Moonstruck’s fourth entry into the premium, single origin chocolate bar category. The chocolate itself was described as the ultimate in single origin chocolate, so we needed to create a package that reflected this. Our goal was to create a package that families with the current Moonstruck Single Origin chocolate bar collection but would be notably more premium in look and finish. The illustration and typography continue on in Moonstruck’s now signature hand-cut paper style. The finishes include: Matte Soft-Touch (Metallic Silver areas). Embossed Glossy Diamond-Kote Varnish (White Illustration + Logo). Purple foil (Typography).”
