Coca-Cola is a global leader in the beverage industry. Frank Mason Robinson created the Coca-Cola logo in 1885. Coca-Cola was originally “patent medicine" when it was invented in 19th century, by John S. Pemburton, who was also the creator of the cursive script of the Coca-Cola logo.
The Coca-Cola bottle remains unique in its design. It was created in 1915, by Earl R. Dean; the Coca-Cola bottle was first introduced as a ‘contour bottle’ or ‘hobble-skirt’ bottle, wide from the centre and slender from below. The bottle’s design bears a resemblance to the two elements, coca leaf and cola nut. With sequential expansion in technology, the Coca-Cola Company introduced aluminum cans. In 2007, the Coca-Cola logo was slightly modified and remained a white and red swirl. Furthermore, in 2008, Coca-Cola introduced plastic bottles; the old shape of the bottle was maintained, with a plastic screw cap.
