"It was simply the best piece of work in the entire collection," said Rodney Fitch, head of the design jury and chairman/CEO of design company Fitch. Jurors lauded Turner Duckworth's "iconization of heritage" for a major multinational brand.

"We set out to help re-establish Coke as a design leader. We are delighted to receive this recognition," said David Turner, co-founder of Turner Duckworth.

Katie Bayne, Coca-Cola North America's Chief Marketing Officer, replied, "Thank you for seeing the brand for what it really is and helping us understand all it can be."

Turner Duckworth also won a Gold Lion for this Aluminum Bottle. "You only need see a slice of the Coca-Cola logo to know it," said Bruce Duckworth. "The bottle shape remains unmistakable even in a new material. The result is package design that feels at once familiar and new."
