Take-art-away cups

The humble takeaway cup is often something taken for granted and discarded once a beverage is finished…well not at 6/8. We have invited a whole host of illustrators, graphic designers and photographers to put their unique skills onto stickers that will adorn our takeaway cups. As well as our customers getting a little piece of art with every drink, it will also be a way of these creatives getting their work to a new audience.

Some are exclusive prints designed for this project, whereas others have sketched or done typography that is different on every sticker - no two cups will be the same.

The majority of contributors are locally based, but submissions are coming from as far away as Glasgow.

So far we have been kindly donated work from:

Lizz Lunney - illustrator

Jodie Atkins - photographer and graphic designer

One Sugar Please - print designer illustrator

Colin Stewart - illustrator

Helen Flanagan - photographer

Kerry Leslie - graphic designer and creator of FAKE Magazine

Carla Smith - illustrator

This is an ongoing project and we welcome submissions from anyone who would like to be part of it.

If you would like to be involved then contact us on Twitter or Facebook.

Keep sketching.

    I have always wanted to do this. I doodle on my own take away cups all the time.
