Design agency Kontrapunkt’s (Denmark) have redesigned cans for Carlsberg’s Black Gold Pilsner. The design features a two-colour scheme with a matt black top and ring pull. I love a bit of matte:
Note how they’ve also added a hop leaf shape cut out on the ring pull. The devil is in the detail!
From the cool cat of beers to an overlooked lager in the Carlsberg range, Black Gold needed a facelift to revive its relevance. Paying homage to the historic Black Gold bottles, we designed a darker than dark can that reflects the bold and more full-bodied pilsner experience.
Carlsberg is one of many brands who have decided to incorporate minimalist design into their branding by stripping back on detail and ornate features.
