Coffee Anyone?

I am not a big coffee drinker but I do enjoy a really good coffee once or twice a week. My sister makes up for me!

It makes me happy to see how art has made its way onto the take-away cups and containers in Australia; until recently this was limited to Christmas designs in the lead-up to the end of the year. Being  a sucker for packaging design, it always sways me in my purchases. I love how a creative graphic design on packaging can elevate the ordinary into something quite special.

I am currently visiting family in Ireland. I ordered a large coffee and was left wide-eyed by the cup size. I don't remember coffee being available in super-size!! I haven't spotted any artistic designs on the take-away cups here as yet but I am keeping an eye out! However, my coffee came with a really cute flower design incorporated into the froth on top. 

Have you come across a clever or eye-catching illustration used on any of your everyday product purchases? I would love to hear about it.

Until next time, Happy Creating!


  1. Gosh! Imagine getting an artwork every time we order coffee, not only we'd enjoy it so much more admiring the cup, but it would prompt us to keep them and re-use them instead of making them instant landfill!
    These coffee cups are stunning, and yes, I always see the ones on overseas programs and realize that we pay way too much for coffee and we get very little amounts here in Aussyland!

    1. I agree Marta! However I don't think I would be able to drink the large quantity of coffee each time, it might keep me up all night!! x
