Logo Starbucks


roastbrief.com.mx

RoastbriefCualquiera que haya vivido lo que Howard Schultz (CEO de Starbucks) describe como la “experiencia Starbucks” sin duda es capaz de identificar el logotipo sin la menor dificultad. Esto se debe a que, como digno representante de la marca, lo vemos por todos lados; afuera de la tienda, en los uniformes, en los vasos y hasta en las servilletas. Sin embargo ¿Cuántos de nosotros realmente nos hemos detenido a observar el logotipo?

Según sus fundadores, la historia de este logo comenzó en 1971 con la inauguración de la primera cafetería Starbucks en la ciudad de Seattle, Estados Unidos. El diseño a cargo de Terry Heckler está basado en la xilografía nórdica del siglo XVI y muestra

una sirena de doble cola con el pecho descubierto. En la imagen se puede apreciar cierta textura y ambas colas se muestran en su totalidad. El ícono es de color café y se encuentra rodeado por el nombre del establecimiento que en aquel entonces era: Starbucks Coffee, Tea and Spices. Éste diseño permaneció en uso hasta 1987.

En 1987 Starbucks fue comprado por el empresario Howard Schultz quien ya era dueño de su propia cadena de cafeterías llamadas Il Giornale (El Periódico). El logotipo que utilizaba Il Giornale consistía de un circulo color verde con el nombre del establecimiento escrito alrededor de la cabeza de Mercurio. Utilizaban al mensajero de los dioses como una analogía de la velocidad con la que preparaban las bebidas.

Soft Drinks vs. Energy Drinks

What helps you perform better: the calorific elixirs of old, or today’s supercharged formulas?

Praised as the antidote to evil, fattening sodas, functional beverages from vitamin-enhanced waters to happiness tonics have been tearing up the American drinks market this decade.

“[Functional] beverages in today’s market [are] certainly driving growth across the board, in all beverage categories,” says Andrew Guard, new products editor at BevNet, a beverage industry news site, describing a market that’s already “functional crazy.” However, the latest drinkable health boom may just be history repeating itself.

Inspiring Drinks Labels: Positive Reasons for Turning to The Bottle

It makes sense that if you’re designing a website, you take inspiration from other websites. This explains the popularity of so many web design and CSS galleries. Sometimes though, getting inspiration from the same sources can get a bit … uninspiring.

It can be well worth looking beyond our own industry for new ideas. This article takes a look at sources of possible inspiration from drink labels. Drink manufacturers know that when scanning labels in the supermarket aisle or bottles lined up along a bar, the average customer doesn’t know the difference between one bottle of wine and another. Very often the decision on which bottle to buy is based on the label.

Inspiring Drinks Labels: Positive Reasons for Turning to The Bottle

Drink companies know the importance of their labelling and the work put into branding of alcoholic drinks is probably greater than any other food or drink labels. This makes them a great source of inspiration for designers.

These are big generalisations, but over the years alcohol has played a significant part in historical events and shaping current thinking and opinions. These historical associations continue to be used in many drinks labels to identify their drink within a particular genre and encourage drinkers to buy into the lifestyle suggested by their branding. The history and public awareness of drinks labelling makes them a great resource for designers.

The coffee lid business is booming. And it’s getting weird

By Benjamin Wallace
American Consumers Are Cutting Back. Except When They’re Not
Another must-have soldier accessory must now be added to Camelback canteens: disposable French press coffee lids. “A lot of deployed servicemen were e-mailing me, ‘We’re trying to get a good cup of coffee off the hood of a Humvee,’ ” says Forrest Graves, a roaster in Cleveland, Ga. Graves knew just what to send them—the Xpress Lid. Made by SmartCup, the Xpress Lid incorporates a plastic strainer and plunger that transforms humdrum paper cups into disposable, single-use plunger pots. SmartCup sells to specialty shops and java enthusiasts for about 40 cents each. The lids are already making inroads in the Middle East. “We started shipping it to troops,” Graves says.
