A Choc-worthy Font

To elaborate on the last post about the design, I really had to think about not only how the words I had written on the notes app of my iPhone were going to look but how they were going to work with the very chocolatey illustrations.

Before I begin, the idea was never to offend all you typography purists out there haha. But after years of working with chocolate, how the heck was I going to chose a typeface that spoke to me in a chocolatey way? The fact was I wasn't, and I was going to have to create a font myself that could embody the untameable and inconsistent nature of chocolate. I wanted it to look like I'd hand-written the entire book with real chocolate too so I hand wrote every single letter and word in the book because that was the only way.

I also chose two colours, one dark and one light to not only soften the heavy impact of the brown on the page but to highlight certain words and to create the a fun opportunity for parents and kids to read the differently coloured parts together when learning how to read. It's not conventional and it certainly wasn't practical but is it chocolatey? I think so.
