Square Coke Bottle Design

CCS student Andrew Kim's Coke bottle redesign is an ambitious take on the iconic bottle, going square in the name of eco-friendliness. The new bottle shape would take up far less space in shipping pallets per bottle, and a push-up in the bottom large enough to accommodate the cap of the bottle bene...

Re: IS Uncapped ADSL: R199 p/m

That's also the problem with Mweb's T n Cs.

Re: What game are you currently playing?

A combination of Mass Effect 2 (second playthrough), Borderlands, Dragon Age (4th playthrough) and Battlefield Bad Company 2. BC2 is (so far) the most enjoyable multiplayer FPS I've played. I'm enjoying more than I enjoyed COD4 and BF2.

I agree with everyone else, drop the flare. Also, imagine printing the logo in black and white, it'll look like the printer ran out of ink (AKA, stay away from gradients). The "Computer" typeface isn't well-suited either, it looks like a geometric Lucida Console, try something that matches the KALST...
