Rio Coffee Package Design
Rio Coffee has been hand roasting Australia’s favourite Coffees since 1964, with 14 varieties already in their portfolio. The aim was to create a premium coffee product that reinforced Rio Coffee’s longevity in the coffee industry and evoking a sense of nostalgia by looking back at the birth of the brand.
The aim was to create a premium, contemporary solution whilst maintaining a style reminiscent of the 60s. The design is influenced the by colours and patterns of the 60s. It uses simple geometric shapes and colours to represent the rising aroma and steam from a cup of coffee. Tin was chosen to package the coffee as to reinforce its connection to the past as well as underpin its premium status.
