Coconut drinks are a nice reminder that Summer is out there somewhere, even during Winter. But if you can’t travel to paradise, why not bring paradise to you? With coconut drinks as The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's main flavor in the Winter of 2018, I proposed the seasonal concept, “Escape Winter”. We used elements like palm leaves and fresh coconuts to put our guests in a tropical vacation mindset. So even though it was Winter, paradise was closer than they thought.
During my time at Hotel Emporium, I worked to create innovative designs in the competitive business of hotel amenities while leading the design team to ensure customer focused and cost effective proposals under tight deadlines.
I currently work as a Graphic Designer at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Corporate Office in Los Angeles. My role is to develop, maintain, and evolve the visual aesthetic of the brand across multiple creative executions including in-store signage and POP, advertising, events, packaging and digital media for the US and International markets. I work to translate business and marketing objectives into designs that are compelling, visually appealing, and easily understood by guests.
"36 Days of Type is a project that invites designers, illustrators and graphic artists to give their particular view on the signs from our alphabet.
36 days of restless creativity, in which participants are challenged to design a letter or number for each day, resulting in an overall view of the ability to represent the same sign from many different perspectives.
A project that aims to create a space for creation around typography and its endless graphic possibilities."

The Business Development Team at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf works very hard to grow our brand through deals with new franchisees and the specialty sales market. I work closely with them to create advertisements and literature that they can use for sales. Through eye-catching visuals and bold stats, we hope to generate new interest in our brand. Projects for them have included:
Signage & Specialty Wraps
Northern Adventures is a project that I worked on to further develop my skills in branding and logo design. This very simple logo uses the “o” to play with the idea of the degree symbol used when mapping coordinates.
