La Crema Roasting and Packaging Coffee Company

I have created many designs for La Crema and Melissa for some time. Every season she brings new collections for her amazing coffee. "The company's slogan is "Our packaging is as fresh as our coffee".  And it is!

Here is their most recent collection "Girlfriends".

Everything starts with a concept and drawing first

Ther popular "Girlfriend" coffee design on La Crema's wonderful coffee packaging.

Created for this winters coldest days, this design will help celebrate the season in style!

Some clients and collections just always work well.  Creating for La Crema has been a joy.  
It's a hit! I am so excited for them and that I contributed to it's success!
