the coffee project

an artful collaboration

Gabriel Cabrera is the awesome creative behind the blog The Artful Desperado and a talented freelance stylist. The Canadian food and lifestyle magazine Acquired Taste invited him to be part of the #TheCoffeeProject – a curated collection of photographs showcasing the art of drinking coffee. To give his styled posts a bit of a twist Gabriel asked me to create some typography to accompany his vision.

After many ideas we decided to feature three warm coffee recipes, each styled by Garbiel, accompanied by some hand made type by me. The spiked sailors coffee and the triple dark are made out of variations of grounded coffee, while the simple cortado is made out of coffee watercolour ( water + instant coffee).

Visit The Artful Desperado blog for the detailed recipes.
