FUCK OFF – Starbucks Logo Fault

From 2004 to 2005 I ran very badly planned subvertising and spoof website campaign against Starbucks and all it stands for. I changed Starbucks logos on 1000s of paper cups and returned them to their stores. I changed the logos in their shop windows. I changed every Starbucks logo we could. I got mildly obsessed. I even set up a website to show all the logos that I’d changed.

In 2005 I was taken through legal action by Starbucks and lost our domain name.

In 2011 Starbucks redesigned it’s logo, I claim full responsibility.
