The Result

The Kandy Build-a-Bar Milk Chocolate Kit brand is a culmination of all things chocolate and wonderful. Tapping into the fondest of childhood memories with playful typography and delicious colors. The main Kandy word is a playful and custom script that reminds the customer of a Willy Wonka experience. Surrounded by a boutique-wide slab typeface that has a “Build your own” essence to it. The banner at the bottom pays homage to the classic chocolate companies with hand-drawn Hershey-esk lettering. The combination of DIY, pop culture, and vintage design make the Kandy brand inviting to all. The color scheme is all about chocolate using various browns complemented by bold contrasting colors to make it whimsical and fun. the overall design was geared to represent a stamped emboss found on many chocolate treats. A seal of perfection and quality. The resulting packing and identity system carries the chocolatier experience with a bespoke vintage feel that is designed to evoke the fondest of emotions you get when enjoying the simple treat that is chocolate.
