packaged FINDINGS: Dasani® Sparkling’s fresh new design is remarkable in its simplicity

Posted on Jun 15, 2016 by


Coca-Cola introduced Dasani Sparkling in 2013, a five-SKU line of naturally flavored, unsweetened and lightly carbonated waters. As of 2016, Sparkling now comes in 12oz cans with six flavors (Lemon, Black Cherry, Lime, Tropical Pineapple, Berry and Raspberry Lemonade) – along with a fresh (and much improved) new design!

The new cans are absolutely beautiful with bright, abstract illustrations of each of the flavors that clearly communicate what I expect the water to be – light, refreshing, and bubbly. The new logo compared to the previous one shows how remarkable simplicity can be (e.g. removing the blue bubbles and the bevel/keylines in the font, etc.).

One more thing I have to mention – I love the animated bubbles on their website! Check it out at
