Student Work – Niamh Richardson

“The project was self-directed and the students were invited to write their own brief on whatever interested them the most. I chose to create an identity and packaging design for a fictional chocolate company called ‘Cacao Monkey’. The text on the front of the packaging was die-cut by hand into rough brown paper, chosen to suggest the organic chocolate. This reveals the bright aluminum foil beneath, which distinguishes each flavour of chocolate. The minimal design reflects the simple, honest ethics of the brand: organic, fairtrade and eco-friendly.”

    It is very nice, but could be hard to manufacture regarding the diecutting of letters in the machinery. But keep up the good work!

    Was thinking of doing something very similar for my young enterprise business (school project). Am i allowed to use the name cocoa monkey since this is a theoretical business
