Dove Deodorants: The Big Switch
After a decade of success, Dove deodorants was facing plateauing growth. We were also facing growing consumer distrust of media and big brands. So, rather than creating a typical 'advertising campaign', we launched our biggest ever consumer trial (now over 5,000 women across 17 different countries). Competitor users tried Dove deodorant for a week, then decided whether to switch to Dove: 90% said they would. Through using women's smartphone footage of the trial, we then created a fresh and authentic user-generated campaign. Truly global in scope, truly local in execution.

All Worth It
This case addresses the pain of feeling excluded. Conventional wisdom dictates that mass marketing should focus on the majority for the biggest returns. Unfortunately, this leaves minorities feeling ignored, especially in mass cosmetics. With the widest foundation range, but not the biggest share, L’Oreal True Match saw an opportunity to help everyone feel ‘worth it’ with a foundation for every kind of face, for every shade around the world. Taking an inclusive, leadership stance was good for everyone, with True Match seeing huge gains in every market.

Protect Like A Mother
Lysol was increasingly perceived as harsh for everyday use. It was losing relevance globally and reserved for only the most extreme cases of disinfection. To reconnect with our core consumers, mums, on more than the grossest jobs in her house, we had to uncover a universal truth that gave our products new and relevant meaning. The resulting campaign elevated the strength of our products from a functional germ-kill claim to an emotional promise of protection. And in the process, it unified a global business, while reimagining an over 100-year-old brand.
