Designers Talk About The Infamous #StarbucksRedCup

, ,

    Did you hear the latest? Starbucks has released their line of holiday cups, and people are ticked off about it. It all started from a video posted on Facebook by Joshua Feuerstein. He feels that Starbucks is taking the Christmas out of the season by changing their cups and not allowing their employees to wish anyone a Merry Christmas. Obviously things went viral, and now everyone is talking about coffee cups like they're the most important thing ever.

    Sigh.

    Now you can make the argument, as Mr. Feuerstein did, that Starbucks is anti-Christmas, but this does seem to come down to a design decision made by the company. Which made us wonder: what do designers think about the issue? Well let's find out, shall we?
