Since opening in Santa Cruz, California, Verve Coffee Roasters has garnered an almost cult-like following among coffee enthusiasts. At its founding, CDA was engaged to create Verve’s identity, its packaging and integrated branding program. One challenge was needing to incorporate multiple levels of information within a single bag design. Our solution presents a clear design system that’s broad enough to differentiate types of coffee while providing a unified brand identity.
