drawing coffee

While I do love a coffee photo I can almost taste and smell (see previous project at Coffee|Served Daily), I have to admit, hand drawn coffee makes more sense. It just seems to be more craft compatible. Sources and Credits: 1. A Loss of Thought  2, 3, 4. draw coffee5, 6. Paul Westcombe

Quite honestly, much of the new and groovy coffee packaging is starting to look the same to me. There’s not much I love more than well-rendered type, but I think I am ready for a fresh new idea. I don’t know that I am ready for a new beverage (coffee will always be my go-to drinking partner), but I love these designs (via the Dieline).

And my favorite…


Beer label design by Bedow for Mikkeller. “This Wild Winter Ale is the fourth in a series of four seasonal beers released during 2012. The label is printed with a heat sensitive color — when the label gets warm the apple tree loses its leaves. Limited to 3,500 bottles.” Brilliant.

simply iconic

Created out of a love for posters, modernism and television, there wasn’t a client out there to commission such a job so Austrian designer Albert Exergian wrote his own brief and created a series of  65 posters. Coffee, tea and TV…love it! Here are some of my favorites…

Vancouver, BC designer, Ben Didier (from Pretty/Ugly Design), for New Zealand’s Coffee Supreme. I pretty much love, believe and want it all. The coffee orders are packaged with the hand lettered print. Perfect blend of coffee and design, don’t you think?

Some delightful packaging for Irish company, Cavistons, from illustrator Steve Simpson. While I do love the restrained typographic designs that seem to be part of today’s coffee branding, I love a fresh cup even more. If I had one of these disposable cups, I promise I would keep it.
