Noma Bar for the Limited Edition by Coca-Cola, Face of the City

Face of the City: Coca-Cola pays homage to Italy with a limited edition glass bottle created by famous Israeli illustrator Noma Bar

To celebrate the relationship between Coca-Cola and Italy begun over ninety years ago, the brand pays homage to six Italian cities with Face of the City: a limited edition dedicated to Milan, Venice, Florence, Rome, Naples and Bari, a journey that ideally represents Coca-Cola’s declaration of love to Italy.

Six faces tell us a story, six cities are the protagonists of this limited edition created by the talented Israeli designer and illustrator Noma Bar.

“I tried to capture the real soul of each city and express it through a character,” says Noma Bar. “Looking at the six faces, you can recognize the symbols of the cities, their architecture, food and landscapes, but only on closer inspection you can see the distinctive elements of Coca-Cola.”Noma Bar, internationally recognized designer, illustrator and graphic designer, is also the author of the covers of the books by Don DeLillo and Haruki Murakami. Bar has also drawn illustrations published in newspapers and magazines such as The New Yorker, The Guardian, The New York Times, GQ, The Economist, Wallpaper and Esquire. Moreover, he has received several awards, such as the Gold Clio Award, D&AD Yellow Pencil Award, Golden Lion Award at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity; in 2014, during the Wallpaper Design Award, he obtained the Life-Enhancer of the Year award.
