9th & Larkin
Branding, pattern design and packaging
San Francisco based, bean-to-bar chocolatier, 9th & Larkin pride themselves in hand-crafting each and every chocolate bar, directly from the raw cacao beans they source from regions all around the world. In order to create a packaging design that would reflect the rawness of their product, it felt natural to turn to the point of origin of the chocolate: the cacao pod.
The dried skin of the cacao pod provided a striking, one-of-a-kind pattern that was then transferred on to silk for screen printing. The resulting effect; a unique and tactile texture that resonates the chocolate’s call to nature.
A considerable amount of chocolate was consumed in the making of this project.
" We worked with Charlotte on a packaging project for our product. The goal was to come up with something simple, yet unique and elegant, and we achieved it! The packaging is beautiful and unique, and people love the story behind it."
