Crown Imports has announced new primary and secondary packaging designs for its top two brands, Corona Extra and Corona Light, set to hit shelves in Spring 2012. This marks the first time in the brand's storied history that the entire line of packaging will adopt new design elements. While the bottles will keep their iconic look, the enhanced packaging will help differentiate the brands through color and graphic changes.
"The new primary and secondary packaging design changes are subtle, but will make a positive impact at retail," said Jim Sabia, Chief Marketing Officer of Crown Imports. "Corona is a beloved brand that embodies the mindset and lifestyle that consumers aspire to—positive, relaxed, easy going."
Collectively, Corona represents more than 75 percent of Crown Imports' volume. Corona Extra, the number one import beer in the United States, will take on a blue and white color palate. Corona Light, the number one imported light beer in the United States, will take on the brand's yellow and white color scheme. Both will have an SKU identifier to the top left corner and feature bottle graphics on the side panels.
Another significant change for Corona Light will be a new lock up with the crown design featured on top of the logo. The 12-pack secondary packaging for cans will look like the bottle secondary packaging, allowing for a better billboard at retail and helping the brands appear in a more uniform fashion.
