With activity in 50 countries and employing more than 2.500 people worldwide, Nespresso introduced a big change in the way people consume coffee at home and at work. Futurebrand created a guide for their presence and material disposition in local cafés and comissioned Barca to create the illustrations for it.

It was a big challenge to create a 2D illustration language for Nespresso, which uses a photographic sophisticated language. In order to preserve brand’s features, we used a reduced color pallete and simple shapes.

Two years later, we were commissioned to work on the second stage of the project illustrating the situation in local bakeries.
