If you are still single this upcoming Valentine’s Day, don’t fret. I believe it’s a season not just for lovers, but also to all the people we hold value and cherish. Toblerone, our favorite triangular chocolate, has a new offering, and it could be one way to show how sweet you are.
Toblerone encourages everyone to #BeMoreImaginative by giving love a lot of thought when gifting your loved ones. Keep it simple and personal through designing your very own Toblerone Valentine-inspired blank packs.
This unconventional idea also gives light that gifts need not be expensive. Sometimes words of affirmation gives the same weight to any other gift we could give. With the Toblerone blank packs, you can put your own bespoke twist on Toblerone’s iconic triangular sleeve. And there are 4 flavors to choose from. They have milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate and milk chocolate with crunchy almonds, my top choice.
If you are up for this creative challenge, there will be Toblerone pop-up Valentine stations in leading malls including Robinson’s Galleria, SM North EDSA, and SM Megamall starting today, until Valentine’s day itself, February 14, 2018. Better yet, there will also be local artists and calligraphers who will be there on selected dates to assit you in personalizing your choice of Toblerone Chocolate bar and Valentine-themed sleeves. For techy art lovers, visit www.tobleroneph.com for digital designs and they can be printed out at in any Toblerone pop-up Valentine stations for a minimum purchase only.
A Loving Local Take
This season, Toblerone ties up with two new artist collaborators whose designs are influenced by what they love the most. Watercolor painter and teacher Alessa Lanot drew inspiration from nature because she loves how greens convey such a positive vibe. “My design is composed of the different indoor houseplants with heart-shaped leaves painted with watercolor: pothos, caladium, diffenbacchia, philodendron,” Lanot shared. “The watercolored note is a little reminder for everyone—friends, lovers, family—to always let love grow and thrive, especially this Valentine season.”
Googly Gooeys, a webcomic turned design blog, puts a very fun and animated spin on her approach on the Toblerone Valentine Sleeve. “My mission is to bring happiness through color, and so I fashioned my design in a way that is fun, happy and colorful,” the artist behind Googly Gooeys mused.
Aside from Alessa and Googly Gooeys, Toblerone continues collaborating with talented artists it has worked with in the past. Visual artist Anina Rubio has a more traditional and sentimental take on the season of love, while illustrator Soleil Ignacio remains to incorporate a fashion spin on her design. Graphic designer June Digan’s sleeve looks out of this world with outer space elements she is known for, while graphic artist Juan Rodriguez put an edge to his design with creative lettering and some interesting characters.
