Club Colombia commissioned JWT Colombia to design three limited edition beer cans which turned out quite unique.

“BRIEF
Club Colombia is the best colombian beer since 1961, its high quality has positioned it as the Colombia´s premium beer. Its logotype is a pre-hispanic symbol form Tolima´s heritage, called ¨TUNJO¨.

Club Colombia has always been concerned about our cultural expressions and its relevance in the Colombian identity. That´s the reason why we made this Ad campaign and series of packaging.

THE QUEST OF LOST PRIDE.
For this idea, we gathered a group of important anthropologists, designers and businessmen, who traveled throughout Colombia with a very special objective: to identify the oldest Colombian handmade techniques, currently in danger of extinction.

Over 52 were found. But taking factors like handmade mastery, economic viability and positive impact on their community into account, only 10 were chosen. Today, these 10 techniques are documented in www.orgulloperdidoclubcolombia.com. There, people will get to know them and choose the three that better represent our National Pride, giving them a chance and not let them die in oblivion.

Club Colombia, along with Fundación Bavaria, will implement a plan to transform these cultural expressions into self-sustained businesses, that will generate work and quality of life in their regions.

As part of this activity, we designed a special edition of cans elaborated with some handmade techniques, which I attach in this e-mail.

The handmade techniques are:

Filigrana del pacífico: it´s a jewerly technique made with gold.
Molas: it´s a sewing technique from the TULE indian community.
Caña flecha: it´s a sewing technique from the ZENÚ indian community.”

The above designs where designed by Marina Munro this is what she’s got to say about here designs.

“These are my final packaging designs for Percol coffee. The whole idea behind my design was to make coffee more playful and visually interesting for the consumer. I created patterns inspired by Colombian culture for my imagery and these were placed on the sides and a much more simple version on the front. The back has a little conversation with speech bubbles and the front has little quirky quotations describing the coffee. The colours chosen reflect the vibrance of Colombian culture and when placed on brown paper look really attractive.”
