Soda Pop Caps
After the Beer Cap Social Icons here’s another set based on the original Chimay Beer Caps. After a welcome suggestion by Dan Wiersema of We Love Icons I created bottle caps for the major soft drinks around today. The odd inclusion is Vita Cola, a blast from my past.
The icon pack includes ICNS (OS X), ICO (Windows) and PNG files, up to 256×256 pixels.
Together with the obvious Coca Cola, Fanta, Sprite and Pepsi caps (including Pepsi’s horrible redesign), the set features Vita Cola, a Coca Cola knockoff created in Eastern Germany in the mid-Fifties under the Communist regime. After 1989 and the fall of the Berlin Wall Vita Cola’s business collapsed but it was brought back in 1994. When I was an exchange student at the Bauhaus-Universität in Weimar in 1998 and 1999 I used to drink it all the time. I even kept a bottle that now sits on a shelf in my bedroom in Milan. A bit of nostalgia for me, yes, but it’s nice to include the odd drink, don’t you think?
