”Rio Coffee have visited four corners of the Earth to source exceptional-quality single-origin coffee beans. Only fitting then, that the packaging should convey the same excitement and enthusiasm with which the beans have been sourced and locally roasted. Each box is adorned with captivating imagery of its homeland, telling a vivid tale of the landscape, people, coffee production and, of course, enjoyment.” We love the beautiful illustrations that perfectly captures each origin perfectly.
"Island Grown Schools (IGS) is a Martha’s Vineyard based non-profit and the Island’s farm-to-school program. IGS brings garden-based learning, healthy, locally grown food, and hands-on farm experiences to children in the community. Our goal was to create a memorable brand that supports IGS in school gardens, classrooms, on farm field trips, and in school cafeterias. This project assists IGS’s mission to help children deepen their understanding of the land, sea, and the way food connects people to one another."

In-development online app for designing, generating and exporting your own customized fonts:
Type design is a discipline of hard work that requires a lot of time and knowledge.
Say hello to prototypo!
Start a font by tweaking all glyphs at once. With more than twenty parameters, design custom classical or experimental shapes. Once prototyping of the font is done, each point and curve of a glyph can be easily modified.
Explore, modify, compare, export with infinite variations.
The app isn’t available as yet, but there will be a campaign next month for funding - it will be online and open-source:
Our plan is to release a first beta in Oct. 2013, with the features of the processing-based prototype demonstrated in the video: a-Z glyphs exportable as .ttx (convertible to .otf using fonttools).
We will launch a crowdfunding campaign at the same time to fund the development of all the features we have in mind for a 1.0: more parameters, more glyphs, built-in .otf export, drag&dropable points and unicorns.
