Bye Bye Elliot

Elliot The Crate Man The ‘giant coke man’ that has dominated the V&A Waterfront skyline for the past 3 years will soon be dismantled and sent by Coca Cola to be recycled.

Elliot the Crate Man was designed by Porky Hefer and his team on behalf of Coca Cola, in an effort to raise awareness about recycling plastic. Ironic really considering Coca Cola is one of the biggest producers of waste plastic, but still.
