Artist Statement

Moonlight Coffee Company is a body of work that explores the idea of
community within a coffee shop. The artist displays the value of this
idea by creating a welcoming coffee shop atmosphere through graphic
design and illustration.
This body of work showcases branding, merchandise design, prints, and
package design mock-ups for Moonlight Coffee Company. The artist uses
design elements, such as text and imagery, to encourage community
growth and an inviting space for everyone. Moonlight Coffee Company
also displays the idea of giving back to the surrounding community by
funding community events within the coffee shop itself.
Fellowship with others is what bonds a community to one another, and
creating that atmosphere through design is what the art exhibition,
Moonlight Coffee Company, is all about.
