The Special Olympics youth deserve to have the chance to be exposed to great opportunities.


STARKART, the largest grocery cart advertising company in the U.S. and Canada, recently posted its original creative design entries for the CokexAdobexYou campaign to its Twitter and Instagram accounts, with the #cokexadobexyou hashtag. The CokexAdobexYou campaign is a benefit for the Special Olympics.

STARKART graphic designers, Pete Ibarra and Dennis Viloria, created special designs for the campaign, along with digital artists from around the world. To celebrate the creative community, Coca-Cola will make a one-time contribution of $35,000 to Special Olympics.

“I relate to being an adolescent that craves to be inspired and wants to win. The Special Olympics youth deserve to have the chance to be exposed to great opportunities,” said Ibarra, the graphic designer responsible for spearheading the STARKART team’s submissions for CokexAdobexYou.

Added Viloria, “My design features a swimmer for sports, as I love water sports. I used clean, modern lines to create a flow of sports and movement. I also incorporated a Japanese rising sun effect, with the Asian family pattern for unity.”

In honor of the campaign, Coca-Cola has shared the brand’s iconic elements (i.e. its bottle, script, and shade of red) for artists to create a unique visual piece using Adobe Creative Cloud Tools. Participants are also encouraged to draw inspiration from the city of Tokyo, Japan, and other core elements such as a circle and the colors red and white when creating their designs on any app in the Adobe Creative Cloud.

“For my submission, I used pop art, texture experimentation, and street art feels to signify dimension and emotion,” concluded Ibarra. “It was a privilege to be able to use Coca-Cola classic design elements.”

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
