Do you drink vitaminwater?

If so, how often?
I drink vitaminwater three to five times a week, "XXX" usually during or after I excercise and "Energy" if I need to stay up late to work.

Which flavor and color inspired your bag and why?
Energy was my main color of inspiration paired with the lime green found on the â??Ã?úConnectâ??Ã?ù label. I found these colors to evoke a sense of vitality and rejuvenation. These vitaminwater colors were integrated into a design by intermixing the sun as â??Ã?úEnergyâ??Ã?ù and â??Ã?úConnectâ??Ã?ù as land. I choose to express the concept of connection by laser etching a pattern infused with connecting organic lines to evoke a sense of energy and commitment one must have for their health, mother earth and all its inhabitants.
