Java Love

What's good for the earth is good for you

Product packaging design for an eco-friendly, sustainably sourced coffee company

Java Love is one of my favorite conceptual projects. I designed this brand to be a locally-owned coffee company who also has a coffee house in Nairobi, Nigeria. Java Love also ships product to Europe.

The design concept is modern with Kenyan traditional patterns. The African tribal pattern design was inspired by Kaylan, and I created my own version and color ways in Illustrator for this project. 

What we did

  • Creative direction & mood board
  • Logo suite
  • Color palette and font selection
  • Packaging & colorway concepts for 5 different flavors
  • Coffee cups concepts
  • Mockups for all 5 flavors
  • Stationery set
  • Java Love app concept


Brand Objectives

We wanted to create a brand that is both modern and minimal, appealing to a youthful audience. Our organic product will be marketed to those concerned about holistic health, and are concerned about quality sources.
Our growers care about quality and locally sourced beans. Java Love uses best industry practices to ensure they are mold and toxin free. This brand was designed to appeal to Gen Zers and millennials.

the results

Art and design concepts were inspired by authentic African nations' traditional patterns and artwork. We infused this throughout the brand

We used a mixture of modern clean design with a brightly colored palette. 

We created a set of 8 different colorways to match the varied flavors. The packaging came out beautifully and would stand out on store shelves if they went to market.

Java Love in real life

I was so impressed with the work that was done on my new company that I immediately asked Angel to review and refresh my 20 year old company’s advertising materials and redo my logo.  I am extremely happy with my new logo options and nailing a small change in fonts used made a massive difference in the overall feel of the new logo.

ReBrand & Website

There’s always a bit of an unknown working with a new designer and hoping they can bring your vision to life. After having Angel do two branding projects I am having her work on a logo for my new legacy project and wouldn’t think about going anywhere else.
