You know what one of my favorite perks is at a nice hotel? The fresh-fruit-infused spa water in the lobby. There's nothing more refreshing than a glass of cold, colorful, thirst-quenching goodness after a long day of traveling. Well, guess what...now you can make your OWN 5-star-hotel-lobby water and take it with you![hr] [threecol_one][/threecol_one] [threecol_one][/threecol_one] [threecol_one_last][/threecol_one_last]
Last month, Akula Kreative was invited to brand this innovative Virgina start-up called Define Bottle. When they shared their prototype mock-ups, I was immediately on board. Not only is the bottle sleek and elegant, it's eco-friendly AND it encourages healthy habits. Want another reason to get it? The idea was conceived by Carter Kostler, a 14 year-old looking to replace sugary beverages in plastic containers with a healthier, safer, and cleaner alternative. Young Entrepreneur recently did a write-up on Kostler, saying:
The Define Bottle is a contemporary-looking glass and bamboo cylinder that’s small enough to fit in standard cup-holders, with two chambers to keep ice and fruit away from the spout. A version made of BPA-free Eastman Tritan — that is, a plastic-like copolyester is also in the works...
“Aside from [my interest in] improving health, it was important to me to do something good for the environment also,” says Kostler who notes that fruit-infused water is healthier than soda and other artificially-flavored drinks.

After finalizing the Define Bottle logo, color palette, and pattern, our next order of business was to brand their Facebook and Twitter pages in time for their September 15th launch on kickstarter.com.
Be sure to check it out this weekend, and LIKE THEM on Facebook if you're a fan of spa water (or would simply like to support a young entrepreneur)!
We'll post the rest of their printed materials after we finish them up in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
