Brand New School and Havas Craft a Cool Campaign for Keurig Kold

Keurig recently launched their new Kold beverage maker with an eye-catching campaign that’s as fun as the drinks themselves. Directed and edited by Brand New School, the campaign, which was concepted and conceived by agency of record Havas Worldwide, is a fast-paced, mixed-media montage of what it’s like to experience the machine and its beverages. Featuring an exclusive partnership with Coca-Cola, Keurig Kold allows consumers to create their own sodas and other soft drinks at home through the use of the iconic Keurig K-Cups.

The Brand New School team found beauty in the storyboard’s stylized liquids and fractured icy textures, and captured them using gorgeous macro shots as well as stunning slow-motion and stop-motion visuals. Taking cues from the bold colors of Pop art, the designers incorporated the Coca-Cola, Sprite, Dr. Pepper, and other logos of available flavors into the aesthetic language of the spots. The team also found inspiration in installation art, which included filling a 50-foot photobubble with balloons and detonating an explosive in an oversized ice cube.

“Developing the look for a new product launch is simultaneously exciting and challenging,” said director Chris Dooley. “It’s that rare opportunity to help create the first impression of the brand, so it needs to have a strong perspective and be filled with memorable and iconic moments. From the outset, I was keenly aware that I would be tasked with giving this product a voice and a visual personality.”
