Tell us about your business

Covetable confectionery to complement your aesthetic is Motif’s mission. The creators behind the collection of stylish mints and NEW cocktail-themed chocolates, which are housed in beautifully designed tins, understand that it is the little details that count. Together with artists and illustrators, Motif is bringing a whole new meaning to eye candy.

There has been a number of brands pushing to be ‘design led’ but this packaging is still inevitably disposable. We want to disrupt this industry. Rather than just a beautifully designed tin suited to one use, we design for longevity and repurpose, building reuse into the packaging from the beginning. By showcasing the skill of our talented in-house design team, recipients are not only delighted with the initial appeal of the pack but are also sold by a desirable product that has a shelf life beyond its original purchase.

Tell us about the products you have entered?

Carefully curated for the most discerning chocolate lovers, our bitesize, mixology-inspired confections are the perfect after dinner delicacy. Each 200g tin contains a collection of exquisite, barrier-coated chocolates inspired by our favourite cocktails. The lines boast flavours of four traditional tipples; Sea Breeze, Espresso Martini, Whiskey Mac and Passionfruit Martini. Made with the highest quality natural ingredients, fiery ginger, peaberry coffee beans, cranberries and raisins, these chocolates are free from alcohol but full of flavour. Enjoy as one of life’s not-so-guilty pleasures. The Espresso Martini and Whiskey Mac varieties are also suitable for vegans.

Not only is our packaging plastic free and fully recyclable but once again, it is designed to be treasured; perfectly sized as a favourable storage solution and sleek enough to display. Style with substance. Whether it’s the difficult-to-buy for dad, the suave father-in-law or the cocktail-loving fashionista, Motif’s perfectly packaged chocolates will dazzle the most discerning of gift receivers.

Why did you choose to enter the GOTY competition? have you entered in the past and has it helped your brand grow?

Motif was founded in 2019 with the intention to take the humble mint and turn it into an object of desire. This year we've diversified, adding four stunning chocolate tins to our offering. As customers have come to expect from Motif, the packaging features some of our beautiful, original surface designs and once again is designed to be kept; perfectly sized for storage and sleek enough to keep on show. These exquisite cocktail-inspired chocolates are perfect for gifting and sure to impress any recipient. With this in mind, we felt the GOTY competition was the perfect opportunity to get these chocolates in front of the right buyers, retailers and even end customers.

What other products will you be bringing to market in 2023

In 2023, you will see the launch of our new limited edition mint tins. Created and curated in the UK by our in-house team of artists and illustrators, our beautiful tins house premium sugar-free, vegan-friendly peppermints. Our limited-edition ranges consist of four complimenting designs, making the range highly collectable. With new designs released periodically, it’s not only our mints that refresh. We take inspiration from many places, whether that is from cultural influence, natural elements or just purely self-expression. We also like to include a collection designed by an external artist as part of a collaboration, to show off designs that we think truly reflect Motif as a brand. There really is a tin for every taste.
