If soda cans looked as beautiful today as they did decades ago, I might actually want to drink their contents. Design blog Packages of the World has a nice roundup of vintage soda cans featuring simple, clean logos and bold colors. (And although I understand the need for reinventing brands, I much prefer the old Mountain Dew logo introduced in the '70s to today's logo, which has some kind of extreme, distorted, "I'm glowing with radiation" aesthetic going on.)
