Chocolate wrapper design competition for Loom

20 Aug 2012 12:03
To celebrate its one year anniversary, Loom, a men's multi-brand fashion store in Parkhurst has collaborated with Honest Chocolate to release a one year anniversary edition slab and it is inviting creatives to design the chocolate's wrapper.
Chocolate wrapper design competition for Loom
The competition, which closes for entries on 2pm on 23 August 2012, has an open brief for creatives to design the packaging for a unique flavoured chocolate: 72% cacao with a hint of cayenne pepper, cinnamon and vanilla, which will be sold exclusively at the store in a limited edition of 365 slabs to represent its first year of trade.

Competition requirements

Download the chocolate wrapper die line here (the template is a Photoshop PSD file). The blue block in the template represents the chocolate - this block should contain all the important elements of the design. The pink lines represent the edge of the wrapper. Artwork from the blue block may spread all the way to the pink lines. However, artwork outside of the blue block will not be clearly visible once the chocolate is wrapped. Ensure that the top "Loom x Honest" logo and bottom "Raw Organic Cacao" logos are visible - do not tamper with the placement of these logos.
