Chocolate Branding reaches it’s pinnacle
A big thanks to one of our favourite resources NOTCOT, for bringing us another excellent Vector Packaging feature. Old-school craftsmanship is alive and well. Vector Art is the bridge between art and design. Holding up the principals of good vector packaging and product design is Rice Creative. They have been on the Vectorvault Radar for some time now.
Watch this amazing video that captures the passion of this product. Big brands take notice. From start to finish, this product is perfection. There is real care and love that can never be duplicated by a factory robot. For many of us, it’s the reason we got into this design business in the first place.
So take my advice. Break off a piece of fine cocoa and a coffee, and indulge in this delectable treat:
Dark and Lovely
If that doesn’t make you feel like raising your game today, I don’t know what will.
Non-believers, you can check the steps

Rice Creative understands the process, and has selected the right tools to assemble it.

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…”
