Happy New Year,
Some people aren't only celebrating a new year - they might also be celebrating a new baby. If they happen to work for Starbucks then they will hopefully receive a congratulations card with my design on the front.
It has been interesting to try to create a design which has all the qualities and sense of tradition sought after by the company, yet retaining a sense that it is my work. And the battle hasn't been won yet. The stork design is the leading candidate, while the dummy design is now aptly named!
