    Pepsi launches new look in first major work with Special PR

    Continuing the celebration of its new visual identity, Pepsi has partnered with 22-year-old emerging ‘digital fashion artist’ Jackson Cowden to launch ‘The Pepsi Pulse Runway Collection’ via Special PR.

    Pepsi first announced the global redesign last month, unveiling its first major visual identity change in fourteen years.

    Inspired by Pepsi’s new brand look, the AI-driven capsule collection reimagines fashion classics, modernising them through innovative AI methods. It challenges traditional design norms, breathing new life into timeless pieces like the little black dress and the classic white shirt through.

    The collection premiered on Wednesday, April 17, in partnership with Australian event and experience creator, Rizer. The evening featured a performance by homegrown superstar G Flip, while model Samantha Harris led the runway alongside model and disability advocate, James Parr.

    The Pepsi Pulse Runway Collection will be rolling out across experiential, earned, social and OOH.

    Alex Bryant, managing director of Special PR, said that finding an interesting way to celebrate the refresh posed an “amazing challenge” for the team’s first project with the iconic brand.

    “Taking inspiration from an industry that knows how to reinvent and refresh, we were delighted to find a shared vision with fashion designer and creative director for the collection, Jackson Cowden,” said Bryant.

    “This campaign launch demonstrates how Pepsi continues to challenge conventions, pushes the boundaries, and always puts enjoyment first.”

    Vandita Pandey, Snacks Beverages at PepsiCo’s chief marketing officer for Australia and New Zealand, said the brand was after a launch that felt relevant to its “culturally thirsty, next generation drinkers in Australia.”

    With our new visual identity being bold, unapologetic, modern, and iconic we wanted to partner with a young designer who could put a unique take on our refresh,” said Pandey.

    The collection launch marks Special PR’s first major project since the March announcement of its appointment as PepsiCo’s partner for brands including Pepsi, Red Rock Deli, and Smith’s, expanding Special Group Australia’s role with the global food giant.

    The partnership extension followed a competitive tender process in 2022, during which Special Group secured PepsiCo’s creative and advertising accounts for the mentioned brands.
