The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

Born in 1963, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is the oldest and largest privately held specialty coffee and tea retailer in the United States. They have over 900 locations in 23 countries. We have been collaborating with them for years, bringing vibrant illustrations to their various products and stores.



Illustrated Coffee Labels

Being a Southern California born and brewed company, CBTL’s mission is to bring the fun, relaxed, but upbeat sensibility of the West Coast through their coffees and teas. We worked with their design team to concept and illustrate labels and custom typography for their many coffee SKUs.

Bringing the California Lifestyle Abroad

Continuing their bright colors and vibrant patterns, we were commissioned to create various murals depicting Hollywood and the California lifestyle. Coffee Bean then installed the murals in various places all over the globe to bring their culture abroad to their international locations.
