To celebrate 140 years of facilitating beery fun-times, Heineken launched a global competition to design a special commemorative bottle. The twist was that people were asked to design one side and then join forces via Facebook with a fellow designer whose work complemented their own. The longlist has now been whittled down to a final three, so come this way to see the three combinations that are in the running to be released at the end of this year and to find out a bit about how they were chosen…
The final selections were made by Evan Orensten, co-founder of Cool Hunting, Mark Dytham, co-founder of PechaKucha, and Mark van Iterson,Heineken’s global head of design.
