It may not be the holiday season anymore, but Starbucks had gotten negative feedback from their cup designs this past season. It seems to be the same people who got upset over the plain red cup had gotten upset over this new cup design. The 2017 cup had doodled hands on the cups, presumably enjoying their coffees and company with each other. People seemed to have an issue with the couple of two “women” holding hands, although no gender is strictly put to the drawings of hands.
Personally, I think the design was cute and it gives artists a cute opportunity to draw or color the cup as they please. The message is cute as well. I do not understand the issue with Starbucks holiday cup designs and I hope they can get away from all of the negativity with their customers.
What do you think?
Here is a peek at my photography collaboration project.
