Beautiful Branding & Package Design

A great brand identity and packaging by studio Eskimo. Roasting Caffè Pagani was founded in 1949 from the dream and the passion of the founder Giorgio Pagani. Roasting is based in is managed by the second generation of the family. They call themselves craftsmen of good taste and the branding and packaging certainly reflect that. The new logo is a metaphor of circular movement of coffee during roasting. In general, the entire roasting process is based on circles, coffee beans always move in a circle. Two main characteristics (time and temperature) have round dials too. Everything is circular and everything rotates. Generation by generation Pagani offer you coffee mixtures of excellent quality. The result of the branding is simply elegant.

Beautiful Pop-Up Coffee Shop

There are few things more important to us first thing in the morning than a morning espresso. It’s often the deciding factor in our daily disposition. Can’t think of a better place to get it than from this beautiful little pop-up cafe in Auckland.

Creatista Café is the brainchild of Nespresso. The space boasts Scandinavian-esque interior, there’s a sofa, lounge chairs and even a dining room table. It’s like sitting in your living room. Beautiful design, branding and product.

Beautiful Georgetown Neighborhood

My favorite neighborhood lately is funky
Georgetown. It has the added distinction
of being the oldest neighborhood in Seattle.
With its own unique identity — one that’s
“industrial bohemian chic”, it’s one of the last
few remaining authentic neighborhoods in
Seattle. I love the grittiness, old rail yards,
bars with live music, coffeehouses, art galleries,
quirky culture, fun hangouts and restaurants
serving a diverse, hipster-leaning set.
Hidden amidst the sprawling warehouses
is an oasis of humanity.

Beautiful Coffee House

Ah, the rain is back and it will be  July 2014
before the faucet gets turned off again.
Why does summer have to be so short?
Perfect day for a straight up black coffee
at one of my favorite haunts Cafe Ladro.
Cheers, and here’s to Autumn
…and hopefully an indian summer.
