Coffee bag packaging illustration for Upwork

Design Product & Packaging

Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
I was commissioned by Upwork to create illustrations for a limited edition coffee bag, for their campaign 'Wake and Make'. The task was to illustrate that moment when inspiration hits while tasting the first sip of coffee. After sensing the smell of my espresso one morning, it hit me - What could better explain the boost of energy, than a space shuttle launch?

How was the illustration used:
The illustration was printed on coffee bags by Red Bay Coffee and was gifted to Upwork's enterprise clients and giveaway winners.

How did you make this work:
My concept was influenced by a Netflix show that I was watching at that time about space shuttles, and the boost of energy I get from my espresso every morning. I combined these two aspects, and after several sketches in my sketchbook, I had my concept, which was accepted by the client immediately (with small tweaks). I illustrated it on Procreate and finished it in Adobe Photoshop.
