I came across this on the online today when searching for some unique coffee cup designs. I think they’re amazing! All the designs are completed unexpected and make great talking points.
The designs are all individually drawn by hand by american graphic designer Miguel Angel Cardona Jr. Miguel transforms the paper coffee cups into singular works of art, sells them at San Francisco’s Cafe Sophie, and donates the proceeds to Project Night Night.
Project Night Night is a US based charity that donates over 25,000 Night Night Packages each year to homeless children under the age of 12. Each paper cup provides one homeless child with a Night Night Package: a canvas bag filled with a security blanket, a toy, and an age-appropriate book. Every child who receives one of our Night Night Packages leaves the shelter owning a book which encourages reading and family bonding, a security blanket which can be cuddled, and a stuffed animal which can become a cherished friend. How cool is that!
The video below is a TV interview with Miguel where he provides some more insight to his designs, how he got started and why he does it.
Amazing designs and done for a fantastic cause – keep up the great work Miguel!
