Seagram’s is an iconic, well-respected brand. The Coca-Cola Company asked Hatch to help refresh the Seagram’s sparkling line and make it more relevant to the sophisticated adult consumer who is tired of overly sweet beverages. We modernized the brand’s crest and then used it in ways that announce that something new is going on. The crest is now more of a friendly element than a crown jewel, with visual treatments such as placing type over it and wrapping it around the corners of cases. And in order to help consumers shop amongst flavors, the cans are flooded with crisp, clean metallic versions of the colors consumers associate with the flavors category-wide.
So successful was this complete brand refresh, we applied the same design principles to the Seagram’s line of Sparkling Seltzers as well.
