Sugar?

Warm up with Rose Blake’s illustration, the artist behind Caffè Nero Christmas cup design. Bold & playful, Rose’s work always tell us beautiful stories with elements of humour. 

 

“The inspiration for the festive cup design was just the idea of having a really fun festival party, fuelled by delicious cake an coffee. I was firstly briefed by the design agency about the tone and feel of illustration, then I sent them a rough coloured sketch. From that I worked up the final drawing in Photoshop.” Rose B.
