Break the Mold: Limited Edition Package Design
2016 was a great year for Jess Glebe Design and C.R. Copywriting. It was our first full year working full-time for ourselves and doing what we love. We wanted to celebrate our successes and the successes of our clients with a year-end "Thank You" to them — as we could not have "broken the design mold" without them.
What good is a "Thank You" without the gift of chocolate to accompany it, right? What's even better? Homemade chocolate in a fancy package...that's what! That is why we put a little extra TLC into our client holiday "thank you" gifts this year.
After carefully preparing countless batches of sea-salted caramels bathed in dark chocolate and pairing them with equally delightful dark chocolate coffee truffles, we set out to package these goodies in a gift box that would do them justice. Thus, we placed our decadent treats in a quaint little box, wrapped it in ultra-smooth Neenah® SLIDE black paper (for a super-rich, smooth-to-the-touch feel), and printed the design in rose gold foil. We then placed the uncoated square centerpiece design onto the front panel, showcasing raised glossy black ink and rose gold foil.
To complete the package, we melted and stamped the Limited Edition wax seals onto the box, along with handwritten elements and our signatures. The inside of each box included a handwritten note to each recipient...and delicious homemade chocolates, of course!
Break the Mold Chocolates packaging took home both a 2017 GD USA Package Design award, as well as the 2017 Dieline Neenah Paper Award.
