Sophia Chang, a self-proclaimed Campbell’s enthusiast, has become famous for her artwork, of which putting a twist on classic art styles is typical. Her approach to art and passion to empower communities is reflected in the artistic interpretation of the can, creating a contemporary feel. The NFT collection pays homage to the brand’s continued evolution over the years.
“Some of the most famous pop art ever created was inspired by the Campbell’s red and white can – the design is as much a staple of the grocery aisle as it is American culture,” said Chang.
After the changes, the label features a number of innovative components and touches to give the brand a more modern feel without departing from its heritage. These include a contemporary logo scripture based on the signature of the founder, Joseph Campbell.
Linda Lee, Chief Marketing Officer of Meals & Beverages at Campbell’s, said:
“We’ve been on a journey to reimagine this iconic brand and appeal to new generations of consumers who are cooking at home more than ever, while still honoring our rich history. The commissioning of our first-ever NFT art piece pays tribute to our place in art and pop culture, while celebrating in the most modern art medium to date. Sophia was a natural choice given her street art sensibility and her love of the Campbell’s brand and its connection to the art world.”
