Case Study

We’re celebrating 80 years of Cheerios with The Mint!

‘Always Oats’ is a mixed media medley, produced by Carbon and directed by Carbon’s Ian Bradley to mark 80 tasty years of Cheerios-filled mornings!

To set the look, we dove back 80 years to the early days of the brand & traveled up to present day — our designers had a blast mashing up characters, typography, textures, and styles.

Did you know…

Cheerios was originally called Cheeri-oats, and they’ve always been made with 100% whole grain oats? Keep an eye out for flying “O’s” and swaying stalks, complete with handcrafted texture throughout.

Jumping back in time
