akamaicoffee got their new product label by running a design contest:
Expand the branding of a Maui company, akamai coffee company!
Check out akamaicoffee's Product label contest…
Food & Drink
We're a Maui, Hawaii gourmet coffee bar (currently a drive-thru coffee shop), and we are expanding our company into a second location (a retail cafe) which will include roasting, brewing, and retail packaging 100% Maui Grown coffee. Our cliental includes the local community of Maui, tourists from around the world, and local high-end restaurants.
What's your vision?
We want to take our existing brand to the next level. We need designs for printed cups, coffee bags, packaging, etc. We'd like a 1-color design (fuchsia), and then a multi-color design (using browns, blacks, whites…any any other colors that compliment the design). Our current white paper coffee cups are hand stamped with fuchsia using the stamp file below (pdf). We need "Maui" to be printed on it somewhere. We're fond of the "hand-stamp" look…but not limited to it. You can also incorporate the map of the Hawaiian islands into the logo...or just the island of Maui (but not necessary). We'd like to have some graphics of just the text, and then design with the logo AND text. Our concept for the coffee roaster/retail cafe will be urban-hipster style, concrete and wood elements, metals, with a bold accent color here and there.
We've included images of MAKER COFFEE ROASTERS and Bird Rock as ideas, but you're not limited to these. Use our stamp (pdf) as the main guideline for your design. Get as close to the pink fuchsia color in our second logo. Keep the font we custom designed in "akamai", which means "smart" and "innovative". The face in the branding is to be kept as well. Mahalo!

It all began with a design brief.
