Starbucks "Carry the Merry"
Nothing gets you into the Holiday spirit like a delicious seasonal beverage from Starbucks. The highly anticipated lineup of hot (and cold!) beverages are now here. To celebrate them, we created this charming little family of ads that feature the carefully crafted cup designs while bringing to life the warmth and sparkle of the Holiday season.

At The Mill, we combined Live-Action, CGI, and Motion Graphics to showcase the iconic Starbucks seasonal beverages as you've never seen them before. From sketches, style frames, animation, and FX simulations - we had a blast creating this "Merry Universe" of art. Take a look :)
