To brew up some good feeling, Starbucks commissioned artist Shogo Ota to design a new limited edition green cup for the US.
From coffee farmers to friends sharing a hug, the design features more than 100 people, who were all drawn in one, long, continuous stroke – representing how coffee can bring the whole community together.
“The green cup and the design represent the connections Starbucks has as a community with its partners (employees) and customers. During a divisive time in our country, Starbucks wanted to create a symbol of unity as a reminder of our shared values, and the need to be good to each other,” said Howard Schultz, Chairman and CEO.
