JIBBIJUG's FROM VISION TO CREATION
From its inception as a thought the Jibbijug was created through a process of experimentation and a desire for versatility in order to produce a product that solved a problem.
The idea and thought of creating a Unique Latteart jug and taking it to the market was based on three prerequisites. Those three were functionality, purpose and aesthetic. This would allow the end user complete enjoyment.
In the early days the Jibbijug was created jonly to help JIBBILITTLE in Latteart competitions. During this time she also used her very first prototype with its unique rounded spout in her classes and noticed the students overall latteart performance was much better than other jugs. I’m turn the students asked to purchase them with a signed autograph as a memento. So the first design was with the Jibbilittle embossed signature.
During the same time as the rounded spout was put out to test the market , Jibbi also created the unusual eagle spout which took a year to complete. At the same time she sought to rebuild the brand name & logo, and also won the NSW 2015 Latteart Champion with her free pours inversion swan tulips.
That popular pattern became a signature pattern and in turn the brand of the company and produced on every single jug.
JIBBIJUG was also the first jug that embossed its own logo into the metal instead of using laser like other brands.
Beyond the launch of the warrior versions 1-3, the sale of the jugs have recorded high sales and have proven very successful in the market. The creation of the 420ml jug suits all cup sizes and can help save cafe owners on milk wastage as can steam right amount of milk for 12oz takeaway cups.
However her mission has evolved to create more specific needs including type of cup within cafes ergonomic physical functionality and specific pattern design.
This has lead to other versions which encompass options for small or big handle, and a variety of weighted jugs (light/ medium/ Meduim-heavy) to suit any needs and trends.
