Not sure who the designer was..but I happily payed the premium to obtain these over the others. And it’s reassuring to know that they are for “everyday use”…bringing good design to the masses and enhancing our lives in that way. Or maybe they are meant to only be used by “designers”…. or maybe you magically become a designer if you use one. A friend of mine at work who is our social media manager asked me to pick up the “marketing cups” next time.
