Cosmic Coffee Company is passionate about supporting independent artists. We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to some of the amazingly talented artists who have created some incredible pieces for us; tea labels, stickers and even our logo!
Carlos: Yes, the same Carlos who roasts your coffee! He designed the Cosmic Coffee Company logo and hand built the entire coffee bar from scratch. Much of it is reclaimed wood we salvaged from the build out of our roastery, shipping crates and an old garden shed. Multi-talented indeed.
Krista Pollock: Krista is a Santa Cruz local artist specializing in Fabric Painting, Illustration and Graphic Design. Her specialty is creating unique hand painted tapestries. Krista designed the labels for our Voodoo Woman, Mad Hatter and Golden Monkey teas. Originally from Connecticut, she now resides in an artist’s community in Santa Cruz, CA. Inspiration for her designs comes from her appreciation for meditative patterns found in vintage tribal textiles from around the world. When Krista is not creating art she’s enjoying her other creative passion, working as a pastry chef. Check out her website for more of her beautiful creations.
Jorge Negrete: Jorge is the graphic artist behind the Coffeenaut stickers everybody loves. He’s a graduate of the Woodburry University in Burbank CA. Check out his portfolio at DEZINEMAKER
Doug Hidalgo: Doug is an artist and college student in Culver City, CA where he’s studying to be a graphic designer. Doug’s art style is Neo Traditional Tattoo art, a modern take on traditional tattoo art. He designed the labels for our Long After Midnite and Soaring Spirit teas.
Brian Sharp: Brian is a Santa Cruz California based artist specializing in hand cast dimensional art pieces and some seriously cool dice. Everything he does is designed, sculpted and cast by hand. He and his wife own the Etsy shop FairyTaleNightmares. Brian is the artist who creates all our custom tap pulls (several skulls and a femur bone). If you’re a horror fan he’s also the creative genius who designed and sculpted the Hellraiser Monopoly board game.
Manny C: Manny is a Santa Clara California based tattoo artist. He created the original art for our Witch’s Garden herbal tisane. Manny has studied traditional studio art as well as digital multimedia. When he’s not tattooing, he’s out road tripping, hiking and trying out new ways to create art.
