Our Work

BrewLab Coffee

BrewLab Coffee on campus is in direct competition with other coffee shops such as Starbucks and Espresso Royale. During the holiday season, BrewLab wanted to compete with Starbucks’ iconic holiday cup design. In response to their request, Pangaea created a letter structured stamp design to decorate their cup sleeves. The letter format was intended to allow the opportunity for friends to share notes to each other. Through using a letter format, it makes the receiver of the drink a personal and memorable experience.



Ikenberry Rainbow Connection

Ikenberry Rainbow Connection (IRC) is a university housing group that strives to provide social and emotional support for the members of the LGBTQIA community. In partnership with Pangaea, a logo design was created for the residence hall group.
