illy Monoarabica Launch

Italy’s premier coffee brand asked my team to launch their first new product in over 30 years: illy Monoarabica. We created impactful creative that allowed illy to connect with an American audience by engaging the spirit of adventure that lies within illy drinkers. We did so with 3 little words: Explore. Discover. Delight.

The campaign went on to help illy increase awareness, drive purchases and ultimately increase sales beyond illy's expectations.

My responsibilities: Platform Creation, Art Direction, Copywriting, Packaging & Promotion Development

Explore. Discover. Delight.

For the launch we created a new campaign for the brand: Explore. Discover. Delight.

The illy consumer is and avid collector of experiences. We developed a platform that allowed them to experience far off places and vibrant cultures. We helped them take a sip around the world.
