China is the land of tea drinkers, and it can be hard to find someone who truly knows how to make a good cup of coffee. Enter Jim Lee, owner of Ocean Grounds, a master of his coffee craft and a true caffeine-creative. When thinking about design for the Ocean Grounds space, Jim turned to us to help create the perfect blend of California style with coffee-shop function.
We wanted to emulate Jim’s unique balance of creative genius and surfer dude throughout the space, showcasing his dedication to the craft and his California upbringing.
