I read a lot of graphic design and packaging design blogs because I'm obsessed with graphics, especially marketing and logo graphics.
I know some people remember where they were when Kennedy was shot or when the moon landing came on TV, but I remember things like where I was when I first saw my first Absolut Vodka ad, or more recently, when I saw that STUNNING new limited edition white Coke Can.
I love how bold and clean and pure the design is. I think I held my breath for a while when I saw the concept art for it. Stunning.
I normally only drink fizzy water and tea, but I had to get my hands on that can.
After a yummy and rare icy Coke, I carefully cut the can open, and ran it through my Big Shot with my new Framelits Label die from the upcoming Occasions Mini catalog.
It cut through the aluminum like a dream.
I cut a second, larger piece with the next biggest framelit from red glimmer paper.
And in a move completely unlike my non-traditional approach to holiday colors, I added some teeny, delicate, Lucky Limeade organdy ribbon.
Don't those gorgeous, ghostly bears just make your eyes happy? I love that the design is built just with negative space.
Stunning, Coca-Cola, just stunning. I will miss this packaging when it's gone.
I'm off to see if there's something I can do with the similarly beautiful box.
