Miscellaneous content: McDonalds branding

I've already covered the McDonalds TV adverts here.

And I reviewed the McDonald Glass Mugs here.

So finally I want to look at the neat branding McDonalds used on their packaging because it was really top notch and featured some illustration work that was never used anywhere else.

First up is the tray liner featuring illustrations of the glass mugs that were available in the US and Europe (not the UK though, scroll down to the end to see what we got).

 Next is the cups, bag and fries holders (one for all four of the main characters). I'm disappointed we didn't get a Dr Chase Meridian but I guess she looks like she's never even touched a French fry in her entire life.

Here's some close-ups of the fries holders. Some really nice illustration work here and I love the fact files on the back.









 And finally here's what we got in the UK instead of the amazing glass mugs. Yeah... a cardboard mask... a flimsy cardboard mask. I'm glad I didn't visit McDonalds in 1995. I would have been an incredibly disappointed child.
