The Campaign

To promote this new formula, we launched “Coca-Cola Guess”, an innovative blind test disguised as a national sampling. We created a limited edition bottle exclusively for sampling, with a brand new label, that can have inside either Coca-Cola original taste or Coca-Cola Zero Sugar Zero Calories.

Creative Execution

The Coca-Cola Guess bottle was distributed in a national sampling. People had to try the product, go to the dedicated website of the activation to check if they have guessed correctly. Each try brought them a chance to win a prize.

Results

500.000 people tried to guess in the first two months. The campaign contributed to 16% increase in Coca-Cola Zero Sugar sales vs. august 2016.

The gin, the city, the song and the search for the special colour of Seville

It was a piece of work that would not only go on to win the agency’s first major award, Bronze in Creative Data at Eurobest in 2018, but would also become part of Seville’s cultural heritage.
