The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Philippines’ 2019 Giving Journals

Viviamo! Inc. once again tapped me to create digital cover designs for Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s 2019 Giving Journals. For this year, the concept for the journals is gold foil stamping on plain background. I executed the concept, and played around with possible geometric configurations inspired by the direction both Viviamo! Inc. and CBTL Philippines wanted for this project.

We ended up with two (2) final cover designs, resulting into different styles and colors: straight lines & black, and curves & teal. Elements such as coffee beans and tea leaves are scattered, yet mindfully placed, around the lines – an idea to keep the design consistent with the identity and brand of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. Apart from the cover designs, I was also commissioned to do illustration work and layout designs for some of the pages.
