Describe the brief from the client
Coca-Cola and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) joined forces in a bold new initiative to help protect the polar bear's Arctic home. Coca-Cola committed up to $3m to WWF's conservation efforts, and planned an 'Arctic Home' campaign to achieve the following:
- Increase brand love
- Provide retail excitement for winter months
- Demonstrate Coca-Cola’s commitment to 'Live Positively'
- Stay at the forefront of marketing innovation
To galvanise fans to help donate, Coca-Cola turned its iconic red cans white, and partnered with us to create the visual graphics that informed the packaging and campaign identity.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
Our goal was to bring awareness to the Arctic Home cause and invite consumers to join Coca-Cola and WWF in helping to protect the polar bear by featuring its image prominently on packaging. The graphics would be applied to all Coca-Cola packaging SKUs.

The visual language from the packaging served as the inspiration for a full-scale, deeply integrated marketing program that reached consumers through a wide array of inspirational and educational touch points. It also extended to other brands within the portfolio to demonstrate Coca-Cola’s commitment to the campaign.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The familiar red can background was replaced with an all-white panorama, highlighted by the iconic Coca-Cola script printed in red. The eye-catching cans featured the image of a mother bear and her 2 cubs making their way across the Arctic. The complimentary red can featured the same illustrations on a red background in celebration of the holiday season. We then extended the concept to a range of packaging, including the fridge pack.
