Renee D'Angelo Designs
Recently I was traveling to New York and visited Chelsea Market. I was lingering in small side shop and immediately was drawn to the chocolates section. Yes I have a sweet tooth … but it was really the packaging that drew me in. So many different colorful, beautifully designed chocolates were all around me and I thought … I want to create my own.
Around that same time I had just watched a documentary called Love & Bananas. It’s about the plight of the Asian Elephant and exposes what every Asian elephant has had to endure to become a service animal and shows us what can be done to prevent the extinction of Asian elephants. These animals are close to my heart. Which is why the design of my packaging is inspired by them!
Ideally, each chocolate bar that is purchased would go to Elephant Nature Park, a sanctuary dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of these elephants.
