High School students 'design a cup' competition!
The Paper Cup Company, following the huge success of custom printed hot cups, launched a competition to design a cold drink paper cup, as a generic design cup for a range of cold drinks.
Mark Woodward Sales Director at The Paper Cup Company, liaised with the Head of Art, Mr Simon Nevett at Ribblesdale School in Clitheroe, Lancashire, to come up with the competition format.
Currently the majority of The Paper Cup Company’s sales have been hot drink paper cups. Cold drink cups had been a slower selling line until recently, but with the increase in smoothies and milk shakes bars, there has been a growing requirement for a stock design cup for customers who can now order the 10,000 cups required for a bespoke design.
Mr Simon Nevett said “This has given the Year 9 Art students a live project with a brief to design a paper cup suitable for cold drink beverages”
Sean Buller of Disposables Supplies, a large distributor of paper cups throughout the UK said “This is a refreshing and innovative design that shows that invigorating designs can be created from young imaginative minds, and we look forward to being able to offer this to our account base”.
The winner Hannah Pearson, received Ł100 off Mark Woodward, Sales Director on Thursday 10th July at the prize giving at the school.
