Coffee packaging seems so ubiquitous in designers’ portfolios that it could almost be a design field in itself. Because of this, getting noticed with packaging design is a difficult task as you compete with both multinational companies and graphic designers who start importing coffee into their village. In this post, we take a look at some packages that really stand out in one way or another.
1. Lagarto coffee packaging
Beautiful packaging with a subtle color scheme and lovely illustrations, superb work by FiveStar Branding.
2. Lucifer coffee roaster
A project that will draw instant hatred from the more literal Christians out there because of its blasphemous name and slogans. There shouldn’t be any bad intentions, just good graphic design from BIS Studio Graphique.
This coffee packaging was designed by Up Brands, a Russian studio based in Moscow, basing the brand on the impressive traditional masks of Indonesia, where the coffee sold comes from. A little scary, this pack is sure to draw a lot of attention on the store display.
4. United by blue
A friendly looking project with little information about it but such a great use of illustrations that it had to be included in this post. It was designed by Lindsay Muir.
5. 3-19 coffee
For a special coffee company that blends coffee, community and art (3-19 Coffee), a special collaboration was required to create the perfect branding and packaging. That’s what Outfit Branding and Public Marking Creative have achieved along with this colorful visual identity. Visit this Behance page for more information.
6. Noma coffee packaging
What happens when tropical animals and plants are shown together on coffee packaging? Beautiful coffee packaging happened! Unfortunately, this is just a design concept, but we thought Nadiia Miller’s work deserved a feature as well. Visit this Behance page for more information.
7. Paradise. Gourmet Club coffee
A special coffee packaging for a gift set designed by Artel Artyomovyh, a Ukrainian designer. The design was intended to symbolize a traveller’s suitcase and was built for demonstration.
8. Packaging of Narcoffee Roasters
The brand’s illustrated history is right on the packaging, with different colors for the location of each coffee variety. A subtle design by Alexandra Necula.
9. Wishbone Brew
An attempt to rethink coffee packaging design by Also Known As Studio. Honestly, if we hadn’t said it, we wouldn’t have known it was coffee packaging, but we used it for the creative effort anyway.
10. Woods coffee packaging
Nothing says camping and adventure like a pine forest and a hipster logo. Sparse use of color and wild minimalism work wonders for these coffee packs for Woods, designed by Man Man Van.
11. Jed’s coffee packaging
A real typographer’s coffee packaging only uses typography, a bit of color, and an icon. Designed by Shine, a design studio from New Zealand.
12. Eos coffee
A coffee stain for coffee packaging might not look like a very innovative idea, but Noem9 Studio managed to give it a special twist by making it evolutive.
As you can see there is diversity in the coffee packaging industry, with many great graphic designers to compete with and this is just a small glimpse of all the coffee packaging that is out there.
