7UP refreshes design in international markets
UP's new visual identity system will be rolled out worldwide from March 2023, in all markets starting with Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, etc.

Soft drink brand 7UP from the house of PepsiCo has announced a new modern design, which it says will elevate its international positioning of adding moments of ‘UPliftment’. This announcement signifies a refreshed strategic and creative north star for the brand that will inform all international programs moving forward, the company said.

As a first intervention, 7UP is introducing a new brand identity with the expression ‘New Get Up, Same 7UP’. The fresh visual identity system – which marks the first major overhaul in over seven years – represents a design that better captures the brand essence, in keeping with its international platform.

The design maintains 7UP’s signature green coloring. With added zesty citrus tones, it brings a vibrant, uplifting new feel to the design. The new design will be visible on 7UP and 7UP Zero Sugar bottles and cans, and will be activated through a multi-touchpoint comedy-centric campaign across static, motion, and digital assets starting March 2023, the company said.

Mauro Porcini, SVP & Chief Design Officer of PepsiCo, said: “UPliftment is a concept that resonates with people globally. Our new visual identity for 7UP was inspired first and foremost by the brand’s creation of moments of UPliftment throughout its history. The PepsiCo Design & Innovation Team created a bright and confident visual identity system that will echo across cultures, regions, and languages. The new 7UP features the brand’s signature punchy green, but with added citrus hues and distinct high-contrast lines that portray a feeling of upward energy.”

7UP will embody the universal language of comedy to bring moments of UPliftment to people’s lives in unexpected ways. To strengthen the brand’s UPliftment positioning, it will roll out its first consumer engagement platform in Spring 2023 across all of its international activations.

Eric Melis, vice president Global Brand Marketing at PepsiCo, said: “We’re excited to shine a light on our international positioning and reveal our visual identity system to the world. 7UP has always provided people with refreshing UPliftment through consumption and that’s why it feels like a natural fit for us to drive this narrative forward and center UPliftment within everything we do. With this announcement, we are showing our commitment to growing our 7Up Zero Sugar range and accelerating the reduction of added sugar across the brand portfolio to meet our consumers’ demands and preferences. We’ve got one brand with two great product offerings, and we can’t wait for the world to see what else we have planned.”

As part of 7UP’s commitment to inspire people to make better choices, the brand will reduce added sugars across its portfolio.

7UP’s new visual identity system will be rolled out worldwide from March 2023, in all markets starting with Bangladesh, China, Egypt, India, Ireland, Latin America, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, UK, and all European markets.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
