If you’re reading this, you probably already know about the fantastic collaboration between Dear Coffee, I Love You, and Simon Alander. That collaboration led to one of the greatest coffee-related shirts ever. Simon recently graduated from Sweden’s Hyper Island where he studied Digital Media. According to Brian Jones of DCILY, “Hyper Island is basically the future of creative education and anyone who attends, will most likely have their choice of opportunities after graduation.”
I’ve been following Simon’s work for the last few months, and its obvious that he has serious talent as a letterer and designer. His work has constantly challenged me, and I look to his work for both inspiration and as an example. I’d love to be able to do what he can do with a pen one day. Not too long ago, Simon and I chatted and thought it would be cool for him to feature some of his work on coffee filters, and to display them here, on Draw Coffee. As usual, he came up with some brilliant work, and I’m privileged to be able to show them to you. Enjoy!
A huge thanks to Simon for putting the work into these, and for even floating the idea. His website, “Coffee Made Me Do It” features many of his projects, and is full of incredible work.
