"February Tea Tasting"

Starbucks Tea Tasting

Dimensions: 11 inches x 17 inches

At the Purdue Memorial Union I frequently had to design posters for both coffee and tea tasting events at the Starbucks in the basement of the building. Believe me when I say that it's rather difficult to come up with fresh ideas again and again essentially making the same poster.

I tried here to create a degree of elegance and almost "old world" grace. It has a very somber color palette with extremely earthy colors at that. The fonts are refined and understated, creating an overall calming effect. Finally, I added a few small, fast illustrations to drive home the tea theme.
