I like: McDonald’s beverage cup lid

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The McDonald’s beverage cup lid is something that we see everyday and ignore. I realised this evening whilst I stared at my coffee cup that it is also an awesome piece of information architecture.

McDonalds cup lid

It clearly shows:

  • A warning that the beverage is hot
  • The type of beverage
  • Instructions on how to make the cup into a travel mug
