“Overview: Bennetto Natural Foods Company launched its flagship product this year ‘Bennetto Drinking Chocolate’. It is positioned within its market as a luxury confectionery brand, with cacao sourced from a certified Fairtrade cooperative in Peru. 

The two key demographics are business to business and direct to consumer. Within the business to business sector the primary categories targeted are large luxury hotels and international airlines. For our direct to consumer market (via local cafés) is skewed towards health conscious women who enjoy current health food trends and have an adventurous and sophisticated palate. 

In response the product needs to deliver packaging that looks intriguing, imaginative and luxurious while showing quirky, ethical and traditional characteristics.”

“burst* created a new identity, packaging, website and promotional material for the hand made chocolatiers Cocoa Loco. The challenge within the design process was to communicate the premium quality of the chocolates while retaining the playful character at the heart of the brand.  Through the combination of a colourful logo, strong typography and a slight retro touch burst* created a strongly recognisable and elegant identity that made Cocoa Loco’s passionate founders proud and even more creative than before.”

Marou x Wallpaper*

Designed by Rice Creative | Country: Vietnam

“When Wallpaper* Magazine discovered Marou Chocolate, our client, they felt that this singular dark chocolate, hand-crafted in Saigon using purely local ingredients was a perfect match for their third annual Handmade issue (an issue with a focus on unique products combining luxury, craft and inspiration). Marou offered to create a special edition Wallpaper* chocolate bar in time for exhibiting at the 2012 Salone de Mobile in Milan. The packaging we designed for this occasion would stay true to the inspiration behind the standard Marou chocolate bars and press further the attention given to lovingly hand printed details. We strayed some from the traditional motifs of the standard bars to embrace a more modernist approach while incorporating the well known Wallpaper* asterisk mark. It began by creating a new background pattern, which moved away from the traditional lattice and organic elements, replacing them by geometric elements forming an extension of the Wallpaper* asterisk.

The same hand mixed inks and screen-printing methods used on the standard Marou packs were employed, but a new palette of hues would be used, derived from the Wallpaper* handmade seal. The seal even informed a limited edition version of Marou’s Monogram for this occasion. The final touch of hand embossing some of the pack’s design elements set the stage for a fully considered hand crafted piece.”

“Regina is a Portuguese chocolate brand founded in 1928. Their products are delicious but their identity really needs some love. 

I have focused on the logo and packaging.The logo is combined with the flavour. As you see every flavour has it’s own unique logo. Combined with the colours you get a new product which stands out. Logo and flavour-text is hand drawn. The rounded corners and swashes is a reference to their history and what it’s all about – chocolate.”

“Brief: Repackage items for the existing online retailer, Dulce Mexico, that provides traditional Mexican candies, fruit snacks, and drinks from a variety of sub-brands. Rethink how Dulce Mexico can introduce themselves to a US market with a stronger brand presence.

Concept: As Dulce Mexico, currently an online candy retailer, is in a unique spot right now as they’re basically introducing themself to a US market, they have a unique opportunity and range of what they can do and how far they can push the brand. My solution to Dulce Mexico’s branding strategy is to play up the elements that are already unique to their candies, the oral experience and sinful indulgence of the sweet and spicy.

And so, the fun is in the foreplay, as Dulce Mexico’s packaging highlights the opening ceremony and sequence of indulging in Mexican candy. Adding intuitive elements such as tequila and tamarind mix further embraces the very experimental nature of these traditional desserts. Whether its girls’ night out, or girls’ night in, Dulce Mexico’s redesigned packaging catches the US market’s attention with a more playful, sexy, and contemporary eating experience.”

“In a hyper-competitive market, standing out from the competition is crucial. To this end, we decided to show the basic ingredient of each flavour of premium chocolate with a fresh perspective, shooting the images from a zenith angle. In this way, we managed to convey the concept of ‘top end’, and in turn raise a range of emotions in the consumer.”

“San Churro’s Real Chocolate is a product range developed in reaction to a chocolate market flooded with inferior ‘confectionary’ chocolate.

In the words of San Churro – “When it comes to chocolate, the truth is that there’s no substitute for REAL cocoa butter. It’s like ketchup without tomatoes, or an omelette without eggs – it’s the key, essential ingredient. Chocolate without it simply is not chocolate, but rather a sub-standard B-grade pretender: all show, no substance.”
