|With Valentine's Day near, chocolate has been on my mind. I even gave my students an assignment this week to design some packaging for a chocolate start-up. While gathering examples, I ran across this work of Sophie Blackwell which she illustrated for a new Brooklyn chocolatier, Cacao Prieto. Their NY factory just had a soft opening for the public in late November. They produce "bean-to-bar organic chocolates" made fresh from the finest cacao from their family farm in the Dominican Republic. Their chocolate bars are hand crafted with 72% dark chocolate in 5 varieties of fruit and nut combinations. They are handsomely packaged with Sophie Blackwells' limited edition illustrations of the Prieto family history. I'll take one of each please. They are dreamy!
