Design Army creates a series of political chocolate packaging ahead of US election


Designer Pum Lefebure of Washington DC-based agency Design Army has partnered with artisan chocolate maker Harper Mcaw. The (Very) Political Collection is a series of six chocolate bars in sleeves that use a red, white and blue colour palette.

The designs feature a capitalist white elephant wearing a raspberry studded smoking jacket, a depitiction of liberally minded hazelnuts mid protest, a sci-fi vision of the right wing Tea Party, and abstracted images of the democratic donkey and the republican elephant.

“This Election Year collection is designed to give a refreshingly positive spin to the world of Washington politics, stir local pride, and shine a spotlight on the Capital’s (seldom seen but thriving) creative, collaborative side,” says Pum.
