UPDATE - August 15th:
First our heartfelt congratulations to Viola Design for the BEST OF SHOW win for DESIGN at the Visual Media Alliance’s Showcase of Excellence awards for the Lonohana Chocolate package. What a well-deserved accomplishment and recognition of her stunning work for Lonohana Estate Chocolate!
And if that wasn't enough...the talented Sabine Lenz featured the package on PaperSpecs, with a great video showcasing all of the thought and care that went into the development of this piece.
Last but not least, we are also honored to have received the BEST OF SHOW for PRINT as well — what a night!
We are so honored to announce that the beautiful packaging that we produced for Viola Design and Lonohana Estate Chocolate has been sweeping the award shows!
In the Visual Media Alliance's Showcase, it took a GOLD for both Design and Print. I'm also excited that we also received an “Award of Recognition”, equivalent to a Silver, in the Premier Print Awards, the world's most prestigious international print competition.
The chocolate is incredible — I needed a lot of samples during the project! — and Lonohana is generously offering all of you a discount to celebrate:

But who are we?
We are not printers. Printers are great, some of our best friends are printers, and printers make our business possible.
But we are not printers…we are more than printers.
We save you at the presentation with beautiful samples, we tell you how to reduce costs but still make a great impression, we are not trying to keep our equipment busy, or sign off quickly to maximize the profit on a run. We are your advocate—we are your eyes, in the middle of the night, in the middle of nowhere, wherever and whenever you need us.
We work closely with your internal team—designers, project managers and yes, even your internal client—to ensure that everyone’s needs are met. We project manage, consult, educate, source, print, bind, mail, ship and track all of your jobs. We will steer your brand safely through multiple processes and production challenges. And we do not miss deadlines. We just don’t.
If we can't do it, we'll tell you because honesty and integrity are the foundation of our business. But we can do it, and we have—since 1995.
