microsite ▴ creative direction
Starbucks Reserve® is a line of rare and premium coffees from the best farms in the world. They are made at the Roastery in Seattle, the recently launched biggest Starbucks store. We created a simple site showcasing the craft and story of the coffees from farm to cup, with a visual direction inspired by its coffee packagings and store design textures: geometric shapes, coppers, teaks and black stone.
