The Collected Works recently completed a packaging & identity project for Café De La Corte, a family owned, single origin coffee farm in Colombia. The small coffee company had a limited budget, so the studio developed an identity and packaging system that was affordable to produce on everything from their bags to their cards.
By using a standard black tin, different coffee blends and roasts could be identified with a strip of adhesive tape-which reduced the costs of producing different packages. The bag colors and typography shift in color, to identify their respective roast. Overall, it was a system that was also accommodating to future blends, products, and could expand as the family company grew.
