Mink Chocolates Packaging Design
Mink Chocolates Inc. produces handmade luxury chocolates with high cocoa content containing dark, milk chocolate, solid and ganache filled chocolate bars.
After we established the visual identity it, and associate devices, were applied to a full line of chocolate bar packaging (33 chocolate bar boxes), bonbon artist series box, gift boxes with gift wraps and chocolate moulds.
Owner, and creative catalyst, Marc Lieberman, has a rapier-like wit and impeccable taste. These come across in all things Mink such as the names and flavours of the bars. With names like: Tawny and Ruby are Friends (port in dark chocolate ganache), Open In Case of Emergency (fresh mint and Kentucky bourbon in chocolate ganache), Certifiably Nutty (roasted almonds), Navel Gazing (candied zest of orange), Ginger or Maryanne? (a Gilligan's Island reference to candied ginger), who could resist?
Naturally, constant quality assurance is of non-negotiable importance with a client such as this. A sacrifice that any Tugboat member is willing and prepared to make.
