Orange soft drink Fanta (opens in new tab) has just unveiled a new logo design (opens in new tab) and industry-first bottle shape. Described by the brand as "fresh and exciting", the new visual identity better reflects "Fanta's irreverent and fun brand personality" than ever before.
Heading up the rebrand is a logo created out of hand-cut paper, complete with a hidden smile worked into the design. This is accompanied by an updated colour palette on the labels and lids.
The most striking part of the redesign though is the warped, asymmetrical bottle. Designed by Drink Works (opens in new tab), the unusual design took almost two years to complete. The brand describes the bottle as "a revolutionary spiral version which twists plastic to form a unique, eye-catching shape."
The new Fanta bottle will be available from the beginning of April, and will be followed by the launch of a new recipe in May that contains a third less sugar. “This year looks set to be the biggest in Fanta’s history, with a fresh new look inside and out," explains marketing director Aedamar Howlett. "The new look will be supported by a multi-million-pound integrated communications campaign for the brand.”
