“Maverick Chocolate Co. is a startup company that hand crafts finished bar in their shop at historic Findlay Market in Cincinnati, Ohio chocolate in small batches from the bean to the.Beans are ethically sourced from smallholder farmers; ingredients are organic.
Maverick’s brand salutes gentleman adventurers of yesteryear — those who did things a little differently, just like the company itself. Packages feature vintage engravings of “mavericks” and their whimsical flying machines, a nod to the company owner’s prior career in the aviation industry. The wine-bottle inspired color palette is dramatic and bold. A different flying contraption is pictured on each flavor of bar along with the tagline, “Bean-to-bar chocolate for the adventurous palate.”
Packages for Maverick chocolate bars are die-cut recloseable wallets, printed in 2 colors on textured paper.”

I’m a huge fan of Stranger & Stranger. The level of craft and thought that goes into their work never ceases to amaze me. For the past seven years we’ve been receiving their annual Christmas gift designed for clients and friends alike, and every year it’s one the gifts I most look forward to receiving.
“Twenty years is a long time in studio years and so we thought we’d celebrate the year with something a little less frivolous than our typical offering. The Book of Stranger features a few hundred of the four and a half thousand jobs we’ve done in that time and the cover, inspired a little by Hieronymous Bosch features all of them. We were looking for appropriate packaging and the human skin covered books of the Bosch era seemed appropriate. Just kidding, it’s not human. It is skin though.”

“Kohana’s coffee is exceptional, but their brand identity was dated, out of sync with their values and missing the mark with contemporary coffee culture. With the brand poised to enter the national market and launch a new product line, it was a perfect moment to shun evolution in favor of revolution.
We proposed a bold transition from a dated packaging system to an identity focused on the islands that inspired the brand, its values and the ritual of enjoying a cup of coffee. To help, we invited artist Abi Daniel to capture the beauty and energy of the coffee plant. The result is a striking package that not only conveys a sense of Hawaii, but translates to just about anywhere people enjoy a moment of reflection.”

“Do your thing! Be it in super markets, gourmet food or tea shops, nowadays nothing but conventional tea that lacks design and quality comes across your way.We decided to change that and break with all traditions of the tea establishment. The brand name “POP TEE” is derived from the Pop Art movement which shocked the art establishment in the mid-50s in a way we want to shake today’s tea market. Our goal is to breathe new life into the industry by combining puristic design and vivid hues with organic teas of the highest quality. The idea of POP TEE is based on a clear-cut sustainability concept and social involvement which means that we environmentally friendly produce and ship our products and partner with Slum-Kinder Kunst, an organization that supports young children in Third World countries.”

“Dash – based in San Francisco – was founded in 2011 by two chefs who were both disenchanted and unsatisfied by the conventional market for purchase-ready seasonings. The pair saw a need for seasonings that would bring vibrancy to at-home cooking.Dash seasonings are all-natural, finely crafted blends of dried herbs, spices and fruits that elevate the home meal to gourmet refinement.
Dash is a luxury brand that appeals to the food connoisseur who values a gourmet at-home meal yet appreciates the convenience of a reliable pre-made blend.
Dash intends to wholesale to high-end national groceries and specialty stores (such as Whole Foods and Williams-Sonoma) as well as market its products through its online store.”

“We all love Christmas. But when you’re a design agency, the pressure’s on. To celebrate the season and their distinctive creative approach, Robot Food gave clients, family and friends something fun, festive and worth making room for on the mantelpiece.
The specialist branding and packaging agency decided on a traditional wooden nutcracker. With an on-brand robotic twist. First seen in Germany, these ornamental figures have been around since the 15th century. They’re usually a wooden solder, knight or king, and are said to possess guardian-like properties because of their imposing presence. One of the inspirations behind The Nutcracker ballet, they’re enjoyed the world over for their festive decorative qualities.”
