Tea for two: Delighting with Promotion Design


Time-traveling film posters. 1950s B-movies colliding with late 20th-century films. Mongrel creative crossbreeds galore. This is what’s up at Tea for two, a graphic design studio in Madrid.

When the HOW team caught sight of Harry, Sally and the creature from the black lagoon in our inbox, we had to see more of these promotional posters and more from the studio behind them. What we found was that Tea for two knows design—and knows how to promote themselves with design. Experimenting with materials, tools and always a wild imagination, the creatives are crafting the kinds of promotions that leave an impression. Below, you’ll find a collection of their promotion design.

Tea for two’s Unique Promotional Posters

Tea for two’s objectives with this poster project in particular was twofold: First, they wanted to enjoy the process of creating the concepts, searching for references and designing them—and they did! Second, they hope for these posters to ultimately bring them more people and companies who want to work with them.

He notes that working on these promotional pieces is very important to the team. The creatives believe in the power of sending unique promotional designs to potential clients via mail and have seen great results, especially with their tea invitation box.

But the project that brought Tea for two the most attention overall was paid client promotion work for FIB (Benicassim International Festival), a musical festival with an audience of 200,000 people watching groups like Depeche Mode, The Cure and Oasis. “It was a fantastic challenge,” Palomar says. “We recreated several festival areas with more than 400 little figures, some of which we made ourselves, which the client really loved.”
