Aether Cola


Another piece of work from the end of last year has now been unveiled. The brief this time was from UK company Cybercandy who asked for a steampunk-themed cola can. If this sounds like the mechanical shark has been well-and-truly vaulted then it’s necessary to note that Cybercandy specialise in novelty food products with science fiction (or similar) themes. They also import food products from other countries. The cans are small size (250 ml) for which I chose a bronze/copper metallic ink that looks great on the finished articles. The job made a welcome change from work for books or CDs.


Aether Cola is available from Cybercandy’s UK outlets. I’m not sure about the availability elsewhere but there’s a dedicated site for the drink here with details of their shops here.

    …but what does it taste like?

    It’s tastes like a cola-flavoured soft drink with sweeteners. I’m not a great connoisseur of sugary drinks.

    Nice bit of chuggable steampunk! I can imagine cracking one open and sitting back to read League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
