Commons Blossom is coffee blend whose proceeds go to farming communities in both West Virginia and Nicaragua. The coffee is a fundraising collaboration between FIRSTHAND Coop, Agrarian Trust, and New Roots Community Farm.
My design for the label uses symbolic florals to link these two communities. In purple, we have rhododendron, the state flower of West Virginia. And in orangey-pink, sacuanjoche, the national flower of Nicaragua.
Both illustration and lettering are created with acrylic ink, and then layered together in Photoshop.
