The iconic Campbell's soup can is getting a redesign
For the first time in 50 years, consumers will see a different design on Campbell's cans
Some brand designs are iconic. Campbell's is one of those brands. Thanks to the adorable melting snowmen commercials and of course, Andy Warhol's soup can art, the 152 year old brand is still a fixture on grocery store shelves and in many people's lives.
However, on July 27th, Campbell's announced on their Twitter that after 50 years they are redesigning their iconic can. The new label is said to have minimal changes, but Campbell's has decided on a 'modernized logo script', meaning they changed the font.

Campbell's said about the change, "The refreshed label still evokes the same sense of comfort, goodness and Americana. Last year, thanks to the pandemic, Campbell's (and other soups) sales went way up as more people cooked from home and fully stocked their pantries. The label's refresh reflects the soup itself, which helped make easy meals to feed homebound bellies."
Campbell's chief marketing officer for meals and beverages, Linda Lee, said, "We've been on a journey to reimagine this iconic brand and appeal to new generations of consumers who are cooking at home more than ever, while still honoring our rich history."
