Diet Coke Packaging Goes On A Diet
In an attempt to appeal to a newer generation of consumers, The Coca-Cola Company announced a complete repackaging of the Diet Coke product. Featuring new flavours, the minimalist design evokes the slim, silver Red Bull style. It also toys with the idea that a slimmer can means a slimmer drink.
