Pearlfisher has created a new look for Blue Bottle Coffee’s New Orleans Iced Coffee. Though many iced coffee brands already crowd the shelves, Blue Bottle’s offering is unique. One of the country's leading artisan roasters, Blue Bottle boasts eight cafés in and around the San Francisco area, six cafes in New York City and is served in farmers markets and restaurants nationwide. Now bringing their coffee expertise out of their cafes, Blue Bottle’s New Orleans Iced Coffee is cold brewed for 18 hours with organic roasted chicory, sweetened with organic cane sugar and cut with organic whole milk. The challenge for the brand was how to share this unique offer and extend the intimate Blue Bottle experience from carefully curated cafes to a carton, reaching a larger audience and standing out on shelves in mass retailers.
To help Blue Bottle surmount this challenge, Pearlfisher created a new design for the brand that stays true to the heart of Blue Bottle Coffee and the founder, James Freeman’s original vision, at once challenging coffee category cues while remaining modest and utilitarian. The carton cues dairy and evokes nostalgia, helping Blue Bottle’s offer stand apart from competitors.
