Cowtown Coffee Roasters

Everything Branding

My creative journey converged with the inspiring tale of “Cowtown Coffee Roaster,” a local Fort Worth coffee venture, igniting my passion for design and Texan heritage. This brand creation saga was a symphony of creativity, confidence, and design mastery. Orchestrated by a visionary husband and wife team, the project sprouted from their transformative voyage to South America. The seeds of collaboration with local farmers and profit-sharing took root during this journey. An unexpected encounter at SXSW, where they showcased their blends at the “Underwood” booth, birthed connections that ignited the spark for this thrilling venture.

The Brand

The objective was to infuse Fort Worth’s vibrant culture into a coffee brand, marrying its historical tapestry with a modern allure that resonated both locally and beyond. Fort Worth’s local culture and the city’s cowboy legacy was an easy starting point for the brand. With a strategic eye on future growth, both within the online realm and physical stores, I positioned the brand to leave an indelible mark and tasteful memories.


Energized by momentum, I secured a presence within local Target stores for a preliminary trial while concurrently nurturing the brand’s digital presence. The website’s evolution paralleled the unfolding brand narrative, creating a harmonious symphony that will aligned with the brand’s vision.

Packaging and Brand

In the initial stages, the packaging evokes quaint reminders of Texan spirit. Envisioning the future, each coffee bag will transform into a landmark map, guiding coffee lovers through the splendid spots across Texas. Intricate illustrations of Fort Worth’s landmarks connect the aromatic charm of freshly roasted coffee with the city’s history, captivating both coffee aficionados and heritage enthusiasts.

The digital realm serves as the canvas for the unfolding narrative. Guided by Melville-style prose, the website takes users through the brand’s evolution. Strategic market strategies and partnerships seamlessly merge with the virtual fabric, creating an immersive online experience. Simultaneously, social media platforms serve as beacons, shining light on the brand’s journey and offerings.

At the current juncture, the brand is satisfied with the progress that has come about and the potential for further products and partnerships, all while maintaining a hometown local nature for the flavors and marketing. With presence in shops and niche locations, a comfortable concept is still evolving, running parallel with the founders’ lifestyle
