    Branding and packaging for an artisanal bakery.
    Published:
Tart Blanc is an artisanal bakery in Singapore specialising in beautiful tarts featuring inventive flavour and texture combinations. The owners, a pair of sisters one of whom is the baker, tell us that they dream of multi-layered tarts exploding with flavours and textures.
 
To underline the “tartistry”  of the baked goods, we came up with the name “tart blanc” which is inspired by “carte blanche”, meaning a blank sheet and expresses the idea that anything is possible. For the packaging and namecards, we chose an unusual and raw grey substrate as an alternative to the ubiquitous kraft to hint at the human-made, small batch nature of the bakery.
 
It took us a very long time to convince the box maker to make the boxes in this material but we think that the results are worth every minute trying to get it right.

We deliberately opted for a minimalist translucent carrier as the brand is visible in a most alluring way through the frosted material.
