Split coffee roasters was founded in 2020, opening our doors in August 2020. This project was founded by two friends that thought they could create something great. Ivan and Matej have a lifelong coffee professional background in roasting, brewing and competing. Split coffee roasters is the culmination of their thoughts on where coffee service should be going, and also a starting point in many ways to bigger, industry-changing ideas.
The visual for "Split coffee roasters" came from thinking about the identity of Dalmatia and the connection with coffee as an identity fragment that is deeply ingrained every citizen of Split. Of course, we didn't want the sign to be banal. The goal was to educate the customers. The elements of the Dalmatian coat of arms are three leopard heads. It was the leopard that was our guiding thread. Most people think that the animals inside the coat of arms are actually lions. We think it's a good "conversation starter" because people will surely wonder why a leopard.
