With the opening of the new Modern Coffee Berkeley bike station cafe Tina and Kristen were eager to decorate their side of the space in true Modern Coffee fashion. We explored a multitude of abstract geometric configurations arriving at this design. Evoking the intersections of streets, buildings, cars, bikes, pedestrians, and cultures & ideas that Berkeley is famous for. All within the Modern Coffee Colour spectrum.

Modern Coffee – Berkeley Mural

The aim was to produce something to give the white walls some vitality. Like Berkeley itself and the sensation coffee fills you with, we wanted to represent those energies visually.

I dove into research on the geometric abstraction masters from South America and found great inspiration from the wonderful works of Hélio Oiticica among a slew of others.

And of course the animated version of the mural. Next I’d like to explore developing an augmented reality experience with this mural.
