The new design not only had to be modernised, but also had to transmit both a friendly and authentic feeling to its target audience. The beer’s symbol originates from the Don Son bronze drum and features the Lacviet bird. By redesigning the bird and adding the two barley strands it communicated a more sophisticated beer language. Parts of the Don Son bronze drum was also used to create patterns which were placed around the beer can. The word mark kept its red colour and it received a embossed look. A custom slab type was designed and replaced the previous condensed font. One element which I think is a shame that was lost are the diacritical marks over the “e” and “a”. From a visual point of view it would have been more authentic Vietnamese if they would have included them. Having said that, I’m no expert in Vietnamese language.
What do you think of the redesign?

Each day a new destination (illustration) was revealed where the viewers had to find one Lufthansa passenger carrying a bag of suitcase.
