A light, crisp, and refreshing redesign

Time and time again, Diet Pepsi drinkers have described the product’s flavor as “light, crisp, and refreshing.” In-house packaging designers, with the help of Deutsch Design Works (San Francisco, CA), created a new design for all Diet Pepsi packaging that would reflect these three important attributes.

The redesigned labels and multipacks that feature the Diet Pepsi logo on a light blue background debuted on store shelves in late February. A “bubbly” background connotes a crisp fresh taste while the blue color ties in with the beverage’s nondiet regular Pepsi. The addition of the three-dimensional red white and blue globe icon gives Diet Pepsi a strong identity yet keeps it “grounded” within the Pepsi family of products. “We’re giving Diet Pepsi the marketing support it deserves” says Dave Burwick senior vp marketing Carbonated Soft Drinks Pepsi-Cola North America Purchase NY. “There are more than 33 million Diet Pepsi consumers in the United States. They’re a fiercely loyal and outspoken group who say consistently what they like most about Diet Pepsi is the light crisp and refreshing taste. Diet Pepsi’s light blue graphics reinforce those qualities and create a tighter bond within the Pepsi trademark.”
