How the Coke Bottle Got Its Shape #eklectica

The Coke bottle is one of those few landmark consumer items to make the leap from consumer item to cultural icon. Millions of us drink from one of them every day, while Andy Warhol also used the bottle in his art. Marilyn Monroe once clutched a Coca-Cola bottle while clad in a polka dot bikini.

How to extend its brand was a question the Atlanta-based Coca-Cola faced that question in the early 1900s. Back then Coca-Cola was packaged in a straight-sided bottle with the logo embossed on it, and “competitors like Celery Cola, Toca Cola, Mako Cola—there were over 1,200 people that tried to imitate the logo.

A murderer's last words inspired Nike's "Just do it"

Dan Wieden, co-founder of the advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy,the agency behind Nike's "Just do it" slogan says that the world's most recognisable taglines was based on the words of a murderer facing a firing squad. Gary Gilmore had robbed and murdered two men in Utah and was executed by firing squad the following year. Gilmore, who had grown up in Portland, Oregan – the city that is home to both Nike and Wieden+Kennedy, was supposed to have uttered 'Let's do it' as his last words (though some say he actually said "Let's do this"). Dan Wieden, didn't think 'Let's do it' was quite it - so he changed it "Just do it". And the rest, like they say, is history!

Your Media Business Will Not Be Saved

Video will not save your media business. Nor will bots, newsletters, a “morning briefing” app, a “lean back” iPad experience, Slack integration, a Snapchat channel, or a great partnership with Twitter. All of these things together might help, but even then, you will not be saved by the magical New Thing that everyone else in the media community is convinced will be the answer to The Problem.
