Subtle graphic patterns and vibrant colors capture the eye and differentiate between the brand’s variants. The clean shape allows for countless designs to be incorporated on future iterations of the Prestige Bottle. Aiming to make an emotional connection with the consumer, the Prestige Bottle reflects the timeless fun and uplifting spirit of Pepsi in a refreshing way. This bottle embodies the Pepsi idea of “Live for Now,” reaching consumers who are explorers at heart, ready to experience all that life has to offer. The Prestige Bottle’s daring design stands out from the crowd, making it the perfect addition for any special occasion or memorable moment.
