Here are the five redesign projects for big brands released over the past week.
Smirnoff is presenting its latest innovation, the Smirnoff White vodka, that is filtered using low temperature. The new product is purified and freeze-filtered at -6°C, which gives it an unprecedented smooth taste. The new vodka version is not for a massive market—it launches exclusively in travel retail.
Smirnoff presents a revolutionary project, Mindtunes, that marks a new level of relationship between music and people. The vodka brand, English music producer DJ Fresh and neurotechnology expert Julien Castet have teamed up to let three physically disabled music fans compose a track with their brain only, and without any regular musical sound-making devices.
Walls of buildings in the city area can be perfect canvas for modern artwork—brands such as Stella Artois and Converse have already proved it with their large-scale projects. Smirnoff also joins the army of urban art wizards by unveiling a series of “painted by light” urban murals on buildings of São Paulo, Brazil. For the project developed by Wieden + Kennedy, the brand invited graffiti artists from Acidum Group to create their stunning artwork with blacklight-activated paint, which glows only at night.
Smirnoff, which excited the globe with party-swapping initiatives as part of the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project for two consecutive years (2010 and 2011), comes back with an international 6-month project, which is also designed to pat tribute to the best in the world’s nightlife cultures. The world’s No.1 vodka brand initiated Smirnoff Midnight Circus, “a global tour celebrating unique nightlife experiences in more than 25 cities.” It won’t be a traditional circus (no clowns, magicians, acrobats and animals), but a new kind of world uniting entrainment, a hilarious spectacle with modern performances.
Smirnoff, which last year helped Madonna to find a new dancer in a global search as part of the second edition of its Nightlight Exchange project, is continuing its multi-faceted partnership with the pop-diva with a new fan-oriented project. The iconic vodka brand is offering its fans an access to a collector’s album, a set of remixed tracks from the singer’s much-anticipated latest album MDNA, which is slated to hit the stores on March 26.
Smirnoff, one of the most ‘artistic’ vodkas in the world, has embarked on a new creative collaboration with two Australian artists, Nanami Cowdroy and Beastman (Brad Eastman), who created two designs for limited edition Smirnoff No. 21 packs. Starting with a black canvas, the two visual art creators developed two awesome interpretations of Smirnoff purity, which will inspire public to create their own art pieces for a digital wall, which will be transformed into the third design.
The less time is left before Christmas, the more campaign and projects roll out to celebrate one of the most waited holidays of the year around the globe. But on November 12, Smirnoff shifted the attention of global audience to another large-scale event, announced back in August. The world’s number one selling vodka arranged a series ‘swapped’ parties across the globe as part of The Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project, which also included an exclusive international high-profile dance competition to select one major winner to join Madonna’s dance crew.
This fall, Smirnoff is treating its fans with a bunch of treats, both entertainment and drinkable. The iconic vodka brand, which has launched spinoffs of its two successful projects, The Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange and Master of the Mix, is now introducing two new flavored vodkas, Whipped Cream and Fluffed Marshmallow—to toast the highly anticipated second installments of the initiatives. According to the brand, the new additions to its portfolio are “to offer adult consumers a line of premium spirits that, similar to that memorable bachelorette party or a classic guys’ night out, are fun, sophisticated, and cleverly wicked.” These new products are all about sweetness and female nature, which can be both sassy and gentle.
