• Coca-Cola and Pepsi have always beensimilar in their “fun and young” personalities, the two companies have consistently stayed on separate paths over the decades. On the whole, Pepsi has stuck with its high energy, music and comedy-driven strategy while Coke can be seenconstantly gravitating towards the emotional side of branding
Pepsi• They have historically gone through an immense amount of change when it comes to their logo evolution and brand recognition.• From the early 1900’s to the 1960’s Pepsi’s logo was extremely similar to that of Coca Cola.• • It wasn’t till 1962 that they incorporated a unique logo that identified them as a competitor to Coca Cola, rather than a subordinate.
Pepsi• Many of their ads were historically targeted at teens and even pre-teens and are injected with fun, sports and most often, music.• This strategy was important for the individuality of Pepsi because it separated them from the same market as Coca Cola.• However, Pepsi refined its image so many times throughout the decade that it often created hatred from the consumer.
Coca Cola• Coca Cola may be the most prominent soft drink in the entire world.• Long before global branding was the trend it is today, Coca- Cola was embracing diversity• “I’d like to buy the world a Coke” series of ads, depicting people from all over the globe joining together in Coke and song.
Coca Cola• • Pepsi always stayed aimed right at children but Coke seems to know that Mom does the shopping and to get her you have to use an emotional appeal that makes Coca-Cola not only something that the whole family desires, but something that is literally an integral part of the family’s life experiences.

Recommendations (Coca Cola)• to keep doing what they are already doing• simplistic design and emphasis and being a “classic” household soft drink that reflects family, love, and diversity• Keep it simple
