A Cup of Kindred Spirits: Global Tea Icons
Bridging Divides Through the Visual Language of Tea Rituals
During this time of atrocity I'm embarking on a new project to create icons of tea🍵encapsulating the essence of countries around the world, bound together by the heartfelt slogan "Tea is always a good idea." In this chaotic world, marred by conflict and division, the universality of tea serves as a gentle reminder of our shared humanity.
The slogan acts as a harmonic note, seamlessly unifying my work into a collective narrative. It's an open invitation for people around the globe to share a moment, to step away from conflict and find comfort in a simple cup of tea. This is not just a series of visual symbols; it's a conscientious effort to curate an experience that fosters dialogue and understanding.
Each icon is a labor of cultural respect. I invest time in researching the tea rituals and traditions of each country, ensuring the design speaks to its unique identity. This isn't just about appealing visuals; it's about building a visual language that invites international cooperation.
I'm embedding a hope that these icons might just serve as beacons of peacemaking during these trying times, reminding us all that, indeed, tea is always a good idea.
Please like, retweet and share.
