Project Spotlight: Custom Boxes for Patachou
August 30, 2022

The Challenge:

Patachou Inc. operates some of Indianapolis’ most sought-after dining establishments and prides itself on being “radically different, radically better.”

The team at Patachou came to Tactive seeking a unique and stylish way to package their growing menu of catered desserts – think expertly frosted carrot cake and delicious cookies.

The custom boxes needed to feature a showstopper design that lives up to the distinguished Patachou brand, and fold flat to take up as minimal storage space as possible. (As anyone who has worked in food service knows, floor space comes at a premium!)

The Solution:

Starting with a standard magnetic close gift box, Team Tactive worked with a custom box manufacturer to engineer an opening on the box front that would allow baked goods to slide in and out without damaging delicate frosting.

Once the structure was finalized, Patachou’s design team created a full-color, trendy layout covering every inch of the box – inside & out. A gold foil border detail and logo add the perfect flash.

The finished product is eye-catching, functional, and a perfect way to showcase some of the best desserts in Indianapolis. Obviously, we had to find out for ourselves. Can confirm. 10/10, will eat again.
