Koko Black x Dan Hunter
A great Australian collaboration
What do you get when a great Australian chef collides with a great Australian chocolatier? Green ants in ganache, spotted gum honey crumble, and a compelling creative brief. For Koko Black’s collaboration with Dan Hunter of Brae, we created an identity to represent a coming together of two creative forces at the top of their game.
Inspired by the skill required from both practitioners to bring native Australian ingredients and botanicals together in fine chocolate, our approach came to life in the idea of ‘artful balance.’
Through graphic symmetry, and complementary, yet unexpected colour pairings of muted Australian tones with bright gold and citrus, the packaging embodies the unique flavour profiles at play, while the recurring X device also becomes a symbol for collaboration.
