I like the idea, but I cannot help but sigh when I see the “oh another cup of coffee seen from above” poster . It makes me feel instantly that it can indeed refer to a creative event, but not a revolutionary one. Thinking outside the box will work as long as people involved all drink coffee in the morning and feel that they are being addressed when a cup of coffee is shown on the poster.
Whatever happened to creative people fueled by chocolate and tea? :)
