"This campaign showcases the dynamic energy and imagery that connects the consumer more closely with the product, creating a tangible sense of immediate future," says Diana Pawlik, Vice President, Marketing, SVEDKA Vodka. "It's all about the possibilities of the 'now'."

"We collaborated with Matt Barnes, a coveted and award winning commercial photographer and one of the hottest multi-media production houses in Europe, Parasol Island.
