Ultimate branded package: A package that stands out—iconic, revolutionary, functional, beautiful, immediately recognizable and connective with the consumer. Of course I am biased, but I would say the Heineken 12-oz. keg can and the Heineken Premium Light sleek bottle are two prime examples. The Coke bottle is another ultimate package; it’s unmistakable.
