Aromas In Coffee
I was commissioned by New York-based baristars Junia & Joseph to produce a series of images for their new scratch and sniff book; Aromas in Coffee. The art direction and styling aims to clearly communicate the coffee flavours in an artistic approach. Each image appears in the book accompanied with typographic lettering of the flavour. The photographs were created with the combination of various colored backgrounds, papers, textures, foods and props found in local flea markets.
