The art of handmade chocolate


This special project was a direct follower of a previous successful cooperation with its owner Dmytro Ushakov and his other business. Due to the trust gained through previous experience, we were honored to develop the entire concept of SO’VIE from scratch – starting with corporate identity and following with exiting challenges of packaging development.


Major goals of the project were to develop luxurious, minimalistic and high-quality packaging that keep beautiful handmade prolines in place while shipping and will allow the customers see its inside.

A solution? A hard cartboard packaging with separate units for each praline, vacuum packaging on produce to keep chocolade from breaking and to maintain the high European packaging standards.

To keep things elegant but practical, the minimalistic yet luxurious packaging design was chosen: a slider cartboard sleeve on a box, decorated with embossed handmade illustrations and a large logo.

Ready for shipping

In order to bring the amazing brand story to the avantscene, we placed it on the back of the box and highlithed the variety of tastes and colors of these handmade and handpainted pralines through illustrations.


The successful collaboration continues. From hard work, experiments, challenges and creativity many examples of custom design were born.


We work together with Ms. Anna Gracsova for 3 years. We started with a small design job for our labels and now, together, we have successfully completed our branding and packaging design. A very talented and creative team!!! I recommend to everyone!
