The main theme of the campaign is to throwback to the beginnings of Yogen Früz, a brand which many Canadians grew up with, and to give back to the Yogen Früz community.

The iconic blue, yellow and pink of the original logo from the 80’s are incorporated into the Anniversary Wordmarks with the current icon of the pink Ü. The three colours can be seen as a visual theme throughout the campaign.
