Illy City Mug
18 June 2015
The illy City Mugs have been conceived thanks to a crowdsourcing graphic design project which allowed to select the best design out of 2,000 proposals. A synthesis of straight lines and bold colors, with a hand drawn texture that conveys warmth and comfort – perfect for your afternoon coffee break: illy City Mugs make great collectibles and gifts, since each one is reminiscent of a city, an experience or the designer’s dream.
