hot choccy flakes from I should cocoa

I should cocoa in Belper is a wonderful place to visit for the most delicious and indulgent hot chocolate and other treats to eat and drink-in or to select artisan chocolates and other gifts to take-away. Run by husband and wife team, Sid and Lisa are as passionate about chocolate as they are about quality and customer service.

Back in September 2012, what began as a small brief to design customer loyalty cards, soon evolved into the requirements to design a whole suite of items for this small, but perfectly formed business. The asset list has now grown to include chocolate menu cards, table menus and simple solutions for two of their biggest sellers – hot chocolate flakes and 100-gram artisan bars in white, milk and dark chocolate. Each edible item is lovingly made and then packaged by Sid and Lisa, so I needed to ensure my packaging design solutions were elegant and sophisticated, but also cost-effective and relatively easy to fulfill.

It’s been a pleasure to evolve I should cocoa’s visual identity and I look forward to creating many more assets in future – oh, and of course, enjoying their chocolate.

Creatin’ birthday cards for me bucko’s young sprogs be always great fun. This year I thought I’d have a go at drawin’ a simple pirate ship for Jake’s second year – arrgh!

Sorry, I know it’s a bit early for national talk like a pirate day, but I couldn’t resist.
