less is more, the Coke chapter

new Coke packageCoca-Cola has new designs of the Cokes, all three major flavours.
The new design is thinner, taller, and is said to be targeted at women on their 20s who want to buy smaller cans when they are on the go.

Size does matter, and the new can is designed as a premium product... it costs more.

The regular Coke (375 ml) is usually priced at A$1.50. The new Coke can (300 ml) costs A$2.

restyling of the can... same product, less coke, more expensive. I don't know how can explain this, specially since this kind of can (redbull/burn type) have the aluminum more thin than it's old brothers, the 330 ml cans and is more cheaper to make. Less cost, less product, more cash to the brand? the consumer is now more stupid and the marketing guys a genius. Greets. JC Bauer - Spanish Industrial Designer.

this is cool!! i like the new can design. it does make it look like more coke i think. and i think this should be targeted to teens. i think they would think its cool!!

I love coke.
And the design of this can is awesome! Its very true to the coke brand and it grabs your attension, excellent! Haha!
(I'm also an Art&Design student)
It's completely consumerist, but who cares! Everything nowdays is! But also, it's less wasteful, i bet theres plenty of people who don't drink whole cans and just throw the rest away! This makes it Eco friendly! HAHA! What a load of rubbish that is!

adam, you are an absolute idiot. agreed, everything in life now is consumerist, but you jumping onto that train just doesn't help. i guess thats the point nowadays, to overwhelm anyone who thinks its bad go; oh well, if you can't beat 'em join 'em. cool cans of coke my ass...

If people are going to spend more money, to get less coke, in a can that could have been designed by a 3 year old, it shows how truly idiotic they are.

And i rest my case, with the idiots in the quotes above saying about how great it is. (Someone's gotta be stupid enough to buy them)
There is nothing good artistically about those cans. They are boring, they do not grab my attention or make me want to purchase them.

Personally I think these cans would be a great option for clubs or other high-end places and even nicer bars. It just gives it a sophisticated look.
