Summary of projectIn a world where people are used to sticking with the familiar… hesitant to mix, create, and connect. Absolut creates better together. By freeing the way we mix. Freeing the way we mix is not a rallying cry to fight for the right to mix, it is an inspiration to enjoy the benefits of mixing freely. Because Absolut Vodka is designed and made to mix in order to create delicious and inviting cocktails. The brand is a cultural mixer and has been responsible for freeing people’s ideas and identities for years.
OutcomeMedia love: Born to Mix’ encourages us to vibe and imbibe with different people who have different perspectives. We set out to create a world that is free, fun, and fabulous by mixing surprising ideas, people, and literally whatever you add to our vodka.
