Designed by you. Colored by INX.

The contest is over, but our excitement lives on. We were so impressed by all the great designs entered in the first-ever Colored by INX Can Design Contest. The effort in creating an outstanding brand design deserves a lot of recognition and we at INX are proud to be part of the process!!

Representing 74 percent of the 1,076 votes cast, the winner by a wide margin was the can design by Esveydi Rossano, for the Indio Beer’s Pueblos de México Unido Edición Muertos, produced by Crown Brand Packaging – Mexico.

INDIO’s promotional label required bright saturated colors to create a contrast that emulated the importance of this celebration by all Mexicans. Using the INX Color Catalog, they were able to compare and select different color samples visualizing combinations increasing the speed in the design process from the start.
