THE SONNETS

Limited edition

FROM TATA COFFEE

TATA Coffee- one of the biggest players in the B2B coffee market, wanted to launch their premium range of speciality coffee brand for the B2C sector. They asked us to create a brand language and packaging for their first limited edition lot of premium microlot coffees.

Brief:

1. Come up with a brand name for the collection.

2. Build the brand from scratch.

3. Design the packaging for the microlot coffee range .

To approach this project we took insights from their already concluded brand workshops. We added market research, competitor landscaping and analysis from our side which lead to the buildup of the brand persona. The combined data gave us a solid base to ideate and execute our concepts.

LOGO FORM: STEP BY STEP

The logotype was inspired by early English sonnet manuscripts, the ornate initial letter being their trademark touch.

It has got some delicate curves and some old school illustrative element. Each curve of the logotype was carefully crafted to match the poetic mood that the brand wanted to convey. Starting from the intricate patterns to the 'estate story' writeup, adheres to this mood to create a cohesive brand feel.

BRAND BOOK

PRODUCT PACKAGING

We made multiple prototypes of the units before finalising on one and sending them out for production. In the process we explored many different paper types, print fabrication techniques and their light bouncing properties.

Initial explorations

Every coffee is unique.

Every coffee has a story of its own.

Each one of the variants of The Sonnets coffee are unique because of their particular estate and the subsequent climatic condition they are collected from. A designated spot on the box was assigned to tell the story of the beautiful  estates they come from and the sustainable system that runs within these estates.
