Nivea Creme

Conception of youth oriented formats

More Info Hide Info

Insight - Objective

To increase the relevance of the Nivea brand (Nivea Creme) in the segment of 16 to 20-year-olds.

Research - Methodology

In a workshop with opinion leaders & in-depth interviews with media experts we created a value-based positioning for this segment by translating Nivea’s traditional values into brand themes appropriate to young people, such as ‘community’, ‘true skills’ and ‘personal creativity’. We used this positioning as a basis for creating new, youth-oriented formats for brand delivery, including the Nivea Summer Camp, a Nivea tube clip holder and a Nivea vending machine.

Recommendations - Impact

In line with the new value-based positioning, we conceptualized the Summer Camp, coordinated the design process for the new Nivea vending machine and clip & oversaw the strategic placement of the machines at key consumer touch points (i.e Skateboard Contests & Music Concerts...) and implemented a lifestyle PR strategy that generated PR Features in 8 German print publcations (i.e Lodown, Spex, Style & de:Bug).
