pepsi01

Pepsi has introduced a new bottle shape for its 20-ounce bottle for the first time in 16 years, along with new graphics, next month.

The new bottle has a contoured bottom half that appears easier for holding, and the wraparound label is shorter so that more of the drink is exposed.

"Great things are not done by impulse, but a series of small things brought together."

‘Wire’ Typography by Dan Hoopert

18 year old Dan Hoopert is only in the early years of his education at university in England, but that’s not stopping the young designer from creating and showcasing his work to the world. Hoopert re-created the alphabet with virtual wire, showing an otherwise simple serif typeface in a complex and intricate way. Basically, this is how your letter looks naked.
