In fact, research reveals a third (32%) of people run out of mixer at Christmas house parties. In answer to this widespread British problem, iconic mixer brand Schweppes has launched its very own Mixer Hotline delivering bottled bubbles direct to peoples’ doors – all absolutely free.
The brand has teamed-up with chef
In North America, the iconic Coca-Cola polar bears are back on Christmas packaging for the first time in three years with a bold, simplistic interpretation from noted illustrator Noma Bar.
Coke’s global and North America design teams collaborated with Coca-Cola Mexico to refresh the seasonal icons, who debuted in a 1993 Coca-Cola commercial titled “Northern Lights” and subsequently took on a more realistic look over
