Joe's Tea Company wins Silver DBA Award

By Clem Cartwright

We are absolutely thrilled to have won a Silver DBA Design Effectiveness Award for our work for Joe's Tea Company.

At Echo, we believe in the power of design and its positive impact on a brand’s business. Joe’s Tea Company is a fantastic example of how a coherent and well thought-out design strategy can build meaningful brands and drive business success.

Founder Joe Kinch recognised that the tea landscape was changing, with growing ranges of speciality teas catering for more health-conscious consumers. Echo created a tea brand that would champion this shift in the tea category, behave as a lifestyle brand and inject youthful desire into one of the UK’s most established sectors.
