The Starbucks

National Spelling Bee

Concept Development, Copywriter | Ad Campaign (Spec)

All finalists receive sponsorships through the Starbucks College Achievement Plan.

As part of the build up to this announcement, Starbucks will covertly misspell it’s name for a week to drive a media frenzy.
