  • The New Pepsi Identity Makes Us Want a Coke

    / Comments (14)

    One of the wise readers over at Brand New has dug through the USPTO’s Search System and uncovered the registered work for the new Pepsi, Mountain Dew and Gatorade. This may not be the final iteration, but it’s pretty close if they’ve spent the money to file for a trademark. What can we say about it? Oh what a difference a creative director can make on a design assignment. Who blew who from Arnell Group to grab this biz from BBDO after 80 years? What a shame.

    Accident Factory shows us a great way to turn the Mac/PC rager from politically nasty to physically nasty. George Romero would be proud. Maybe.
