Brand New School Busts Out New Campaign for Café Bustelo

Tapping into his “Domina-Rican” heritage, Brand New School creative director Andrés Rivera uses childhood memories to infuse authenticity and style into four new Café Bustelo spots celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.

From the team at Brand New School in New York: “As a kid growing up in the Bronx, Andrés Rivera used to keep his action figures in a Café Bustelo can while his mom let the empty cans double as vases. This personal relationship with the brand was a point of inspiration he drew upon for his work as lead designer and illustrator.

“The new ads involved multiple members of the Hispanic community including Argentina musicians and vocalist Mia Matahoney, while the main character was inspired by Angelina, the wife of Gregorio Bustelo and the face of the Café Bustelo logo.”
