Sharing A Gift Project

We've been working with Coca-Cola since 2003 when we first designed their very own tartan. The criss cross plaid pattern symbolizes family, community and unity- all words that reflect Coca-Cola.

So when the call came to design cuff-links for their Artic Home campaign, we were excited to roll up our sleeves with them. Photographs of actual polar bears were used for inspiration.  Gift cards sharing the story of the commission and the symbolism and reason for the commission was included- all for a great cause!
