I have been working with Norwegian coffee roasters Langora Kaffebrenneri since 2014; together we have developed the aesthetic for the brand that's vibrant and lively, hopefully to be reflective of the wondrous parts of the world in which the coffee bean was grown.
In late 2017 they up-scaled their roasters from a small stabbur (traditional Norwegian stilted building) to a larger custom-built building in the same complex in Hjelseng Farm in Stjørdal, Norway.
For the expansion, I was commissioned to create a mural for the interior to warm the place up - an amalgamation of various animals, plants and scenery from coffee growing countries, with a Langøra man enjoying a fresh brew on the banks of a river.
Our collaboration has concentrated mostly on the label illustrations for each new coffee that is released, ranging from bags to tins. Occasionally there's a special edition product that would involve a slightly different approach - for instance, they made a 'cold brew' coffee based beer, and a special 'Julekaffe' Christmas edition coffee with silver foil details.
I've also worked with them on a few extra products, such as enamel camping mugs and a coffee festival poster.
A number of the illustrations that I have worked on are also now available to buy as prints in their online shop.
