Buddy Mugs - Bringing people closer together close


The idea

My vision was to produce an exciting, practical alternative to the everyday mug. I wanted to bring people closer together through good design.


The situation

Spending ten minutes of your day having a coffee break with friends or colleagues is essential for your mental wellbeing; it gives you an opportunity to share a feeling, an experience or your next big idea.


The challenge

The journey from the kettle to your favourite place should be hassle free. But often you are carrying more than one mug, a packet of biscuits and opening doors with your elbows.

One of the challenges for the buddy mug was led by social design, the mug had to be innovative but also socially inclusive.

I wanted the shape of the mug to be distinctive, beautiful, iconic on it’s own or as part of a set.


The Buddy Mug

Our unique tessellating mug design allows multiple mugs to be carried comfortably in one hand, making the journey from the kettle hassle free.

From the moment you hold the Buddy Mug you can see that every aspect, every line has been carefully crafted. The uninterrupted form, tessellating design and graphics all work together to create the ultimate social mug.

So, grab some buddies, make a drink and share your dreams.
