Lonohana Estate
Chocolate Packaging
If there's anything more heavenly and luxurious than chocolate, it has to be local chocolate enjoyed in that paradise on earth, Hawaii.

To accomplish this, Deb worked closely with Aslan Graphics and Moquin Press to produce a single, intriguing packaging system for all five varieties of chocolate.
