Bio: Danielle Harris is a multidisciplinary Designer, Art Director, and Brand Strategist living in Oakland, California who’s spent the majority of the last three years working with specialty coffee brands. Her first exposure to specialty coffee was at the age of fourteen in Atlanta, GA, where she grew up. Her father was one of the first small roasters and coffee shop owners at the time and there he would teach her to roast coffee and craft drinks. She went on to become a Certified Barista, working at several specialty shops while getting her college degree in Graphic Design. When asked to come on as lead designer at Tonx Coffee in 2013, she couldn’t believe the luck of being able to work in her favorite two fields at once. Her work for Tonx, and most recently Blue Bottle Coffee, involved custom packaging, web design, product development, and Art Direction.
