How can a beverage brand launch a new product line beyond its hippie roots into hipster culture?

Agency: EGG BRANDING

NEW PRODUCT, NEW FORM FACTOR, NEW APPROACH

Challenge

Guayaki was the #1 yerba mate brand in the US, but their latest product — mate in a can — needed a new approach to captivate a new audience: the young male energy drink consumer.
