From Initial Design to a Creation

At work we sell, design and manufacture bespoke printed paper cups. The company is called The Printed Cup Company, pretty self explanatory name.

We’re currently working with a UK charity called Epilepsy Action to help raise some money for their cause by using our services.

We plan to use our expertise in this field to design a bespoke cup which we will hand out to local businesses. For every cup used we will donate 10p to Epilepsy Action.

As well as donating ourselves, there will be information printed onto the cup asking the users to donate too. They’ll be able to donate in the following ways:
Online via our JustGiving page:
Or they can text “CUPS51 AMOUNT” to 70070. Eg. “CUPS51 £3” to 70070.

As the marketing assistant at the company it was my job to mock up a design for the cups and this is what I came up with.

cup mock up

As you can see it’s not the best of cup designs and would look pretty awful actually on the cup (that’s why I don’t work in the Graphic Design department).

But Phill took my poor attempt and created this.

ea temp

As you can see our company can take the worst of designs and turn them into a usable template (they do this for free by the way which is pretty cool) and then turn that template into a cup (all in our UK factory).

We’ve now sent out samples to the charity and on a personal level I feel very proud that something I orchestrated has now been turned into a physical product that is now being sent to a huge charity for exposure online all the while raising the vital funds needed to combat epilepsy.

Here are the finished products for those interested, they look very smart indeed!
