When you take a look around at Starbucks marketing materials, signage, and in-store design photos, notice the images of partners. They’re real people. From the partners who show up on the “Employment Opportunity” window clings to the wall designs and collages, Starbucks uses photographs of real partners.

Can you spot the 20-year Starbucks partner, who is a master coffee roaster? Do you recognize this wall collage?
