COMMISSION

Volcano at Home

Volcano At Home is the latest venture of South London independent coffee roasters, Volcano Coffee Works. Commission designed the visual language for this arm of the Volcano brand, along with retail, subscription and wholesale packaging.

Volcano have developed 100% compostable, Nespresso-compatible coffee pods, filled with ethically traded coffee, roasted small-batch by their independent team in Brixton. A clear consideration of science and craft runs through the brand and offered a clear starting point to inform the Volcano At Home branding and packaging.

The pods sit in a card tray made from a single sheet of 100% recycled fibre board, folded double, to occupy as little space, and use as little material, as possible. 

Hand-drawn icons reflect the distinct characteristics of each coffee, while the electric red and orange of the Bold Morning Shot and Balanced All Day boxes set them apart from the richer, sweeter Reserve.

The whole package offers a compact but tactile experience, delivering convenience with a conscience. Whether posted to home-subscribers or lined-up on retail shelves, the boxes aim to be as refreshing as Volcano’s ethos.

Approach

Good design stands at the crossroads of function and beauty. It engages, compels, and makes perfect sense. This is what we strive to give our clients at Commission.

The journey to get there should be a revelatory and inspiring experience with strong relationships formed along the way. We observe and we listen until we understand: only then do we immerse ourselves in the creative challenge. 

Our process aims to unearth and communicate the intangible essence of a brand that people fall in love with. From its behaviour to its products; we believe every company has a story to tell and that design can be the most powerful way to tell it.
