The spirit of summer, sunshine, and adventure… all in a mezcal cocktail-filled can? Don’t mind if we do. So, when Elenita wanted a bold brand that embodied a sense of playfulness, we jumped at the chance to flex our skills during a complete branding experience.

With Elenita’s founders being from California and Mexico, it seemed only right to add a twist of California-cool to this classic Mexican cocktail. Inspired by the warm sunshine, we created a fresh color palette to guide the rest of their brand implementation, design strategy, and print production. That brightness shines through to Elenita’s logo, which does double duty as both a sunrise and agave plant. The wordmark and shapes were inspired after researching historic Mexican designs and were a perfect fit to showcase the cocktail’s sparkling flavor profiles. We wanted Elenita’s packaging to be part of their customer’s complete brand experience, so we made sure the upbeat vibe took center-stage as part of the can’s full-scene wrap design. Now that they’re ready to launch, it’s time for us to raise a cold can and say salud

“Working with Nice People has been a huge part of our early success. Many people have pointed out to us that the clean and sophisticated design is a big reason why they try Elenita for the first time. Then, they come back for the exquisite sparkling mezcal cocktail that’s inside the can. Additionally, working with Amber and the Nice People team is a pleasure, as they make working through very challenging processes quite enjoyable.”
