Building on a long tradition of providing poetic and inspirational time-outs, Julius Meinl has developed a close relationship to art and culture. Since the early days, design has always played a vital role for Julius Meinl.
Our logo was created in 1924 by the well-known Viennese artist Josef Binder and has consistently been modernized by various artists over the years, most recently by the Austrian-Italian architect and designer Matteo Thun. Imperial flair with a modern touch defines the Julius Meinl brand today.
“The typical Meinl logo is fantastic –extremely graceful. It stands for tradition and a pioneering spirit – namely for bringing coffee to Austria. We have given the figure a new coat of paint and tried to capture the elegance of Viennese coffee house culture.”
Julius Meinl Posters feature nostalgic paintings from various Austrian Artists from the early 20th century.

Design of our Professional Line
Packaging is an important factor for the quality of coffee, which we have developed with great care. Packaging does not only protect coffee from losing its aroma and thereby quality, but it also serves as an eye-catcher and design object. Star designer Matteo Thun has developed the Julius Meinl Professional packaging based on three main pillars:
Thun was inspired by the theme of Wiener Werkstätte, a new artistic genre founded by Josef Hoffmann in 1903, and used the typical patterns and elements to create a truly poetic and distinctive design. The Julius Meinl Professional packaging is the symbol of long lived heritage paired with contemporarism and serves as a true breath-taker in your coffeehouse.
