What comes to mind when you hear the phrase, “A Fresh Start“? For me, it’s a beginning, turning over a new leaf, or discovering something new.
This is what #StartFreshatSBC is about. Seattle’s Best Coffee explores this concept, of starting fresh, just like how coffee jumpstarts your day.
SBC launches The SBC Perkspective, a
series of quarterly pocket events that will offer talks, workshops, and
informal meet-ups aimed at giving a fresh
perspective on how we create and view art, music, photography and other
creative processes. Through this series, SBC is recreated into a space
that not only offers great coffee and tasty food, but a go-to place for
the community to come together, to be inspired
and to conspire, and to come up with novel ideas and a new outlook on
first run of The SBC Perkspective, SBC enlisted emerging graphic artist
and muralist Anina Rubio to turn the glass windows of its BGC branch
into a colorful,
eye-catching and inspiring backdrop that can whet both our palates and
who has used her talent to liven up the walls of retail venues and
public spaces across the city, brightened up SBC’s BGC branch with her
big, bold floral signatures
awashed in brilliant, mood-lifting hues.
My favorite part was when the guests, including me, got to join in painting the mural! Anina assigned us parts of the mural to color! Mine was coffee beans while Bettina’s was the leaves!
“I’m very much inspired
by nature. You can see it in 98 percent of my artworks. This mural is
very personal because I start my day with a shot of espresso or an Iced
Americano, and I also have a backyard full of
plants, which is a similar setting to what you have here at SBC BGC,”
Rubio said during the live painting event-slash-workshop attended by
street art fans and bloggers. “Sometimes work gets toxic, sometimes our
environment gets toxic. We all want a breather
and for me the best way to do that, to start fresh, is to embrace
nature more—better if you’re sipping a good cup of coffee.”
While Anina was doing the live mural, she taught us how to design SBC’s
Premium Tumblers. We decorated the chic black tumblers while sipping SBCs freshly brewed coffee
and refreshing iced tea, and munching on freshly made Chunky Tuna or
Ham, Bacon and Egg sandwiches from the kitchen.
That’s Bettina, Lucky, and me showing off our completed designs!
Mind-energizing coffee, heart-filling food and soul-nourishing art.
The SBC Perkspective
is transforming SBC spaces across the metropolis into conduits for
creativity and communication—not to mention delicious, freshly
made coffee and chow.
