Just take a look at the drinks aisle at your neighbourhood grocer and pause to count the number of different soda options there are. I bet you'll find at least more than 20 to 30 different options. Aside from the types of brands, you have different flavours, different sweeteners and even imported versions. The range of refreshing thirst quenching possibilities are staggering.
Now, imagine a fictional world where animals shopped at supermarkets and enjoyed the occasional cold soda pops. Wouldn't that be super wild? Brands would now need to cater to different animals and their unique palates. The size of the soda aisles would double or perhaps triple!
This creative printable design challenge is a bubbly exercise of the imagination. Let's design some fictional cans of soda for animals.
