Describe the brief from the client
The Coca Cola Friendship Machine is a promotional campaign to celebrate Friend’s Day in Latin America.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
We designed a structure with a 2 for 1 Coke offer but with a little detail, this particular vending machine was 3.5 meters tall. So friends had to cooperate with each other to insert the money into the machine slot and have access to the 2 for 1 Coke promo.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The machine turned the simple action of using a vending machine into an extraordinary moment. A moment of joy and fun shared with friends.
The Coca Cola vending machine is a true icon, an icon we redesigned for the very first time in history.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
7 countries enjoyed the Friendship Machine promo. 800 Cokes were sold in 9 hours. That’s 1075% more sales than with a regular vending machine. Thousands of comments on blogs and social networks around the world. With friendship as the means to make it possible.
