Describe the challenges and key objectives

Identify the strongest ingredients within the new Cristal brand identity and bring them to life. Create a series that work powerfully separately and together. The goal was to motivate and inspire people to embrace the new brand, and believe in it.

Create a series of inspirational posters that highlight the central elements in the new brand identity for Cristal. These visuals are used throughout the company and brewery to stimulate a mentality of change.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
By magnifying five key elements in the new Cristal identity, a memorable and powerful series of visual statements were created.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The Cristal brand is supported by a huge infrastructure, spread throughout the entire country. Placing these iconic and striking visuals in the various offices, as well as in a travelling exhibition, has created a universal buy in from stakeholders, and infused a renewed sense of aspiration to the Cristal brand.
