Kalala Cup Design

Kalala Coffee

Designed for African born, Toronto-based entrepreneur, Sarah Sekalala, the Kalala Coffee brand evokes Ugandan coffee culture while at the same time, giving the audience a taste of African story-telling. The name ‘Kalala’ means ‘the one that is different’, interestingly, it also includes part of Sarah’s name. To be successful, this identity project needed to show that uniqueness.

So, we decided to use the cups as canvases to talk about not just the coffee origins but include long-loved stories from Africa.
