About The Client

Absolut has always pushed the boundaries of contemporary culture through creative collaborations with artists spanning art, music and fashion. Beginning in 1985, when Andy Warhol created the first in a series of iconic advertisements inspired by the Absolut bottle, Absolut has collaborated with more than 550 artists on over 850 commissioned projects.

With its new brand ethos “Transform Today”, Absolut transforms the way the brand collaborates with artists, and strengthens its effort to connect to global audiences through the common language of art.

Behind The Project

The Challenge

Sharing a vision to inspire artistic transformation and connect with fans through art, music and fashion, Lady Gaga and Absolut created an innovative partnership to connect with the creative spirit in all of us via a multi-faceted collaboration.

Recognized by Forbes in 2013 as the most powerful musician in the world, Lady Gaga is a groundbreaking creative force and global superstar. For Absolut, the opportunity to partner with an artist at Lady Gaga’s echelon was simply too good to pass up.

As the exclusive sponsor of the “Absolut ARTPOP Lounge”, a VIP Seating area built into the stage, Absolut had high visibility integration into Lady Gaga’s performance at each show. But their partnership with Lady Gaga extended much further beyond the stage, into social channels, retail relationships and hospitality.
