And Union’s Beer Can go texture

Bavarian craft brewer AND UNION has unveiled the first canned beers, in textured aluminium cans.

“Bavarian craft brewer AND UNION has unveiled the first canned beers in its range with a  ballsy yet restrained design. Solid, single colours represent each beer in the line-up, in an attempt  to cut through the clutter commonly seen on shelves these days.”

“The  modest hero of the design is texture, as the brewer played with embossed geometric shapes to add depth to the  container  in the absence of typical craft beer aesthetics. By manipulating the surface of the  aluminium can, the design balances visual simplicity with detailed, tactile consideration to reflect the  malleable nature of the material.” Via The Dieline

Coke Sharing Can

You have probably seen the Coke bottles where the iconic logo is swapped with names, to invite people sharing the drink (and spread the message virally). Coca-Cola marketing has long centered around various ways of sharing.  Here is yet another twist on the theme. A temporary campaign; a regular-size Coke that twists apart into two small cans…

‘Designed by Ehrenstråhle & Wågnert. “Femme Natural Boost is an energy drink that turns to a female audience that, in the current situation, have no alternative available in a product category in which communication signals mostly extreme sports, masculinity and testosterone. The challenge was therefore to develop a package that attracts the audience without, for that matter, alluding to the old image of what is feminine.

Femininity and independence were the key words in the creation of Femme’s brand, which included a complete graphic profile and packaging design. In terms of branding we wanted to express attitude and self- confidence with the female at the heart of it, which sets Femme apart from other competitors in the energy drink market. By working with a saturated yet distinctive color along with hand-drawn typeface, the can got an expression that was feminine without being perceived as cliché-like.”
