The Civil Experience: Calidad

Experience begins the moment you hold our packaging, which proudly echoes “calidad” – a Spanish term embodying ‘quality.’

Crafted from eco-friendly, recyclable fiber, our box boasts an innovative sealing system that elegantly unveils its treasures. The understated yet impactful Civil Roasters logo is meticulously embossed/debossed, capturing attention with its gold foiled accents. A dynamic colorful labeling system graces the exterior, detailing the origin/blend, intricate flavor profiles, and a trove of coffee knowledge, perfect for the discerning enthusiast.

Every surface of our packaging is meticulously conceptualized, mirroring the core values of Civil. As consumers tear the top, they’re greeted by the vibrant Civil ‘rojo’ hue, complemented by heartfelt community messages in shimmering gold foil. This journey culminates with a pristine white kraft bag, crowned with a gold foil ‘Calidad’ diamond emblem – a testament to equilibrium, audacity, and unparalleled quality

Daydrink

Outstanding Packaging – Whole Bean / Loose Leaf Finalist

daydrink coffee sda design submission 1

The jars are heavily inspired by the free spirited mentality of the ’60s and ’70s. Our intention was to create a fun, nostalgic, and light aesthetic with an infusion of minimalist sensibilities. We use our logomark to build the repeating pattern on the front of the packaging and use a varying color palette inspired tonally by the ’70s, but also the by flavor of amazing coffee in the jar. Most importantly we wanted to create something sustainable that people felt like they could connect with on a deeper level and functionally use after the coffee is gone.
