The ABC’s of Paper Cups

Nicely done by IaM Design out of Seoul.

“ABC Paper Cup puts an end to the boring design of disposable paper cups, which are easily confused with one another and thus users often have to take a new one. The ABC Paper Cup makes it easy to remember your cup, because it has a unique design in 14 variations, including the alphabet from A to Z. Apart from the cups with their colourful signs and letters in simple, cheerful designs there are also fun suggestions on how the ABC Paper Cups can also be used.”

MTV changes logo

Say it ain’t so. After 29 years the original MTV logo designed by Frank Olinsky of Manhattan Design has been redesigned by MTV’s in-house creative team. It still retains many of the elements from the original minus ‘music television’, less ‘M’, and a more refined ‘TV’.

Tina Exarhos, a spokesperson for MTV’s marketing team, explained the change to “The New York Daily News”: “If you watch the channel, you’ve seen that it’s definitely going in a new direction. We really wanted to see the logo featured in a new way, and this was really meant to be able to house all the great things that are happening at MTV at any given time.”
