We are excited to share that we are selected as one of the twenty-five designers for the FIT Design Entrepreneurs Program, Class of 2019.
For our fifth anniversary, we collaborated with Marou Chocolate, Vietnam’s premier pod-to-bar chocolate maker, to create a limited chocolate bar that brings together incredible flavors from Vietnam. Marou developed a custom chocolate highlighting in-season tamarind. Rice Creative, Marou’s long-time design partner, developed a packaging design that represents the collaboration: exquisite handcraft, layering, draping, and pure forms.
We collaborated with illustrator Khoi Pham to create artwork in tandem with our five year anniversary celebration. Finding inspiration in Pam Yung’s menu for Kaarem, as well as his early childhood memories of Vietnam, Khoi illustrated five Vietnamese fruit/seed: Lotus, Durian, Tamarind, Kumquat, Persimmon.
