Behind The Design

We have so many talented people who work for us (we seriously do y'all... you don't even know). This design is brought to you by our very own, Jacob Raley. He is one of our Head Roasters and has been with us since our South Presa days. That's right... the coffee you're drinking now was most likely roasted by Jacob.

He has been developing his unique typography since high school. It started, he describes, as a "serify, Western font... but elongated and thinner." The next influence... enter reaction-diffusion systems. Much like how chaos theory has influenced art with fractals, reaction-diffusion systems really inspired Jacob. He combined the general theory behind the systems with the custom typography he created... and boom; a new font was born. Since then he's been developing and fine-tuning it.

If you ever come visit us at the roastery, you'll see it everywhere... from labels on roast sample bags, on the side of an urn of freshly brewed coffee noting the coffee inside, on whiteboards in our cupping lab, and on sticky notes around our computer stations next to the roasters.

This guy brings so much good energy to our team. We wouldn't be the same without him and are so grateful to get to introduce his creativity to all of you.
