The logo, the TW monogram, represents classic high-end and luxury combined with fine craftsmanship. It figures in two versions, the TW monogram is the “mother” brand in the hierarchy. The “product” brand shows the same monogram in an ellipse, with the coffee bean as a visual reference. It figures on coffee labels, take away cups, etc.
During my time as lead designer at Isobar, we did Tim Wendelboes website and webshop. The site had two goals, to tell the story of the company and its products, and sell coffee to customers world wide.
Since May 2012 Tim Wendelboe have had the opportunity to work in direct partnership with Don Elias Roa, the owner of Finca Tamana in Colombia. This relationship has improved the coffee quality from Finca Tamana dramatically and in 2015 they were excited to share this story in a book that provides an overview of the activities at Finca Tamana.
Today Tim Wendelboe coffee is served in restaurants like Katla and Sentralen (Lava Oslo) and sold in numerous espresso bars and cafés around the globe. You can also taste custom roasts in restaurants like three michelin star Maaemo in Oslo and Noma in Copenhagen.
