The origins of Sydney's population encompass more than 200 ancestries.
Sydney folk come from all corners of the world. We created chocolates to tell the stories of us; where we came from and where we settled. There are 5 million stories encapsulated in each box of 12 unique flavours. Celebrate our diversity through a shared love of chocolate!
We are making data tasty.
Over a year of research and development has gone into refining 'Not a Single Origin'.
Combining code and confectionary, every part of this concept originates from data and algorithms. We used experimental 3D printing techniques to visualise each suburb on their respective chocolate, literally bringing the streets to your taste buds. The packaging is a feat of algorithmic art - photographs of all our ingredients twisted and transformed into an other-worldly terrain bursting with the colours and vibrancy of Sydney's multicultural makeup.
This project is a collaboration between two very different creators.
Small Multiples is a multidisciplinary team of data specialists, designers and developers. The company creates beautiful digital products that capture the imagination and tell stories that matter. Its co-founder, Jack Zhao, always had a yearning to communicate data off-screen. Encoding demographic data using flavours became the natural progression of this idea. Project team: Jack Zhao (concept, creative direction and project management), Dasha Yurovskaya (design and 3D modelling), Harry Morris (design and creative coding), Robert Yuan (digital fabrication), and Andrea Lau (creative direction).
Bakedown Cakery is an artisan chocolate and cake boutique based in St Leonards, Sydney. Since beginning in 2015, the main ethos of Bakedown has been to hero premium quality ingredients along with unique, exciting and challenging flavours. Jen Lo, the founder, comes from a background in Visual Communication and loves any chance to combine the art of sweet treats with a good conceptual design brief!
