But the brand kept Arnell's look for Trop50, the low-cal, low sugar version of the juice.
Not any more. According to The Dieline, a design blog, the client has reverted most of Trop50's look back to the brand's original, common-sense version. Although the original, decades-old Tropicana look (below) was the product of a design firm, Sterling Brands, the passage of time has made it appear decidedly old-fashioned and undesigned. It's basically just the name of the product, on a box, with a photo of an orange underneath.
For those who feel that modern life has become a soulless, generic experience in which every object we encounter looks like an iPod, this counts as something of a victory.
