To create an activation for Peoples Coffee at their coffee stand at Splore Festival, that positioned them as the peoples coffee.


Give customers the opportunity to buy a coffee and pay it forward by buying one for a stranger, in a painted cup.

Customers could paint cups using eco-friendly paint (a favourite for the kids) and/or use a cup painted by someone else as their pay it forward cup.

Teams on ground level then took the coffees out into the crowds at Splore to provide surprise and delight moments for unsuspecting festival goers.
