You go, coco!

The brief

Did you miss Coco the parrot? A mythical symbol of the 80s, much like Minitel and disco, Tropico has marked memories. After a take-over by the Coca-Cola group at the end of 2018, the legendary drink is back on the shelves! Gone with the nostalgia – Tropico is orchestrating its return to address new generations. This begs the question: How can the brand modernize its range, its look and its territory whilst remaining faithful to those characteristics that have made it so unique and popular?

Our recommendation

The emblematic world of Tropico remains engraved in everyone’s minds. Its dream beaches, tropical colors, and, let’s not forget, Coco the parrot, have won over many fans. Amongst its once loyal consumers, some have become parents and will be delighted to rediscover the iconic drink and share it with their children. Which leads us to the conclusion: reconcile tradition and modernism in a new urban and offbeat spirit to conquer generation Z. Obviously, this does not mean that we abandon the postcard universe of the Tropics one finds on the bottles, a favorite of the fam. Instead, we are changing the cans to display a rainbow of colors for a more confident look intended to woo younger consumers.
