Mr Cyril Destrade
Watercolour drawings for packaging of a Parisian chocolate maker.

Design Product & Packaging

Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
The client, Maison Foucher , asked me for a blossoming and colorful creation. The main goal of my illustrations is to convey a joyful spirit, reflecting the autumn colours in Western Europe: dark and purple brown, green leaves....with a waterfall as well as the colours of chocolate ingredients: almonds, nuts and plain dark chocolate.

How was the illustration used:
My creations were used for several chocolate packages and for a special poster displayed on the front of the Maison Foucher main boutique on Avenue de l'Opéra in Paris.

How did you make this work:
Conception and creation of watercolour drawings for the famous Parisian chocolate maker "Maison Foucher". Autumnal packaging design range : Mendiants and orangettes. To conceive and to realize this product’s artwork, I wanted to dream awake, setting up a dream-like world of fauna such as small squirrels, angels, butterflies, birds and foxes.
