With the Anniversary of William & Catherine approaching, here's a project that hits the spot. Back in 2011, we were asked to design a coffee cup with a difference. 100% compostable or recyclable, Vegware are the leading manufacturers of compostable products. To celebrate the marriage of Will & Kate we were asked to deliver a design for a disposable coffee cup. The design shows an English Oak and an English Rose. There are a number of memorabilia hanging in the canopies that reflect each of their lives and achievements. All 'married' together above the college crest of St Andrews where they first met. Some of the detail is shown below.
The cups were successful in the U.S. and amongst many 'Indies' in the UK. In the week lead up to the wedding, over 50,000 were sold.
It baffles me why the large retailers haven't cottoned on to this ingenious product? We've used it on Farm products to deli counter items. It literally melts away in 3-4 weeks! I suspect that it's largely due to the big boys not getting there first, patents etc. We highly recommend the products of Vegware.
