Chase Captures Flow For X2 Energy Drink

The global energy drinks market size is anticipated to reach $84.70 billion by 2026 according to a new report published by Polaris Market Research. But, although consumers appreciate the boost energy drinks provide, they are concerned about their high sugar content, artificial and unknown ingredients that may produce unwanted effects (jitters and crash) and have an unpleasant taste. To counter this perception — and to emphasize that X2 is an all-natural energy drink — Chase redesigned the brand from the ground up to capture the natural flow of energy that X2 delivers.

Knock Down the House is finally on Netflix! It’s hard to believe exactly one year ago we were making buttons for @ocasio2018 and today we’re telling you that YOU HAVE TO WATCH the documentary about how @ocasio2018 became @repocasiocortez and changed the course of history.

We designed the film’s titles and created some of the artwork used on Netflix. It’s humbling to have contributed in our own small way.

Thanks to @racheliplears, @coreytorpiephotography, @netflix, and of course the ever-inspiring @ocasio2018
