Make tea, not war!

The need for new office mugs sparked the idea for an in-house design competition back in 2012. Many varied and creative designs were presented with the overall winner being Anthony Vickery with his TDA town design which incorporates various Trewin Design projects.

These mugs made their way to many homes and work places throughout the South West of England, we never imagined they would end up in a custody battle!!!

The story of Agnes Cioffi at Aster Group shows how much they are cherished!

Agnes called our offices recently and explained that unfortunately her boss broke her mug and were we able to send her a replacement mug as her morning brew was just not the same. We happily sent a replacement off to Agnes and received this email:

“Just wanted to say a massive thank you, I’m such a lucky mug, even if my boss is feeling slightly mugged off (he is actually very jealous!!!). If you ever purchase any again, please could you let me know as I’d like to buy a few, or even if you come across one floating around I’d be happy to pay a good price. Thanks again, you’re a star.’

We love a happy ending!

P.S. If you want a little fun over the darker nights and you’ve already got through the 8 episodes of Stranger Things, then follow us on Instagram, take a closer look at Anthony’s design and comment on any of the projects you can spot! Our Instagram is @trewin_design, look forward to hearing from you!
