I really like the new Starbucks branding
Yesterday... when I went for a coffee and a game of Yahtzee with @myopicaardvark... I noticed the new Starbucks logo had arrived in Glasgow.
Personally, I really like it. Its familiar yet new and fresh... exactly what a design revamp should be, in my opinion.
I also like the way the Siren's image is being used on the sleeve... in its enlarged and slightly abstracted glory. Its like the logo is precious... but not something to be slavishly revered... instead there is room for innovative manipulation.
All in... a revamp I really like... so much so I asked for a paper cup to take home. I figured after all the coffees I've had in my own to-go cups... one paper cup wouldn't hurt.
