With a few avid chocoholics on the Design Week team, (ahem – my reason for living) it is no surprise that we can hardly contain our excitement and salivating thoughts after hearing about The Chocolate Library- a home for chocolate with something to say.
Founded in 2007 by design and publishing expert Sandra Colamartino, the company creates design-led chocolate bars for large organisations as well as private clients. The Message bars have a flexible design allowing the central band on the box to be personalised, while still looking like part of a collection.
This concept has been carried through to a new range called Bar of the Day – which offers a typography-inspired bar a day. ‘The plan has always been to build up a library of bars so we aim to create 100 bars in 100 days,’ says Colamartino.
It is only day two. With another 98 bars yet to be designed, Colamartino is hoping to feature other bars from graphic designers and illustrators. For more information please visit www.chocolatelibrary.co.uk
