LoveBar Chocolates aims to bring you purest quality, best tasting chocolate around. But we also work from a deep love of all things Philly, and especially try to expose more Philadelphians to the incredible local artists we have here. That’s why all of our chocolate wrappers are designed by Philadelphia-based artists, and hand screen printed by Pete Whitney of Outlaw Print Co (www.outlawprintco.com). After a number of months, Pete approached us about designing a wrapper and we couldn’t be happier that he did!
Pete and his business partner Joel Peterson spend their days as screen printers, but design the night away for their own line, Magick Outlaw. You can check out some of their work here (www.outlawprintco.com/index.php?/shop/shirt-tomorow) and here (www.outlawprintco.com/index.php?/posters/art-prints).
And take a minute to learn a little bit more about what Pete and Joel are all about in their own words from this 2007 interview (www.uwishunu.com/2007/10/philly-profile-outlaw-print-company-2). The way Joel speaks about his love of Philadelphia demonstrates one of the many reasons we’re so excited to work with Outlaw:
“I’m inspired by the people and especially by the neighborhoods. The neighborhoods change so drastically, from block to block. And there is so much history, you can walk down a block, see a house built in 1897 with people living and hanging out on the porch.. it’s inspiring.”
So get inspired too. We find that eating and making chocolate helps.
