  4. 4. Truth Anti-Tobacco Ethnography Role: Head Strategist How are teens truly using media and technology. What insights can we get to that will help us connect with teens? SOLUTION Because of the increased savvy of teens with technology, they have amazing tools at their fingertips. We can put the power of the message into the hands of teens by plugging into their everyday use of technology, letting them create their own message.
  5. 5. Jennifer Lopez Fragrance for Men Role: Brand Strategist How do we add a men’s fragrance, while staying true to the essence of the Jennifer SOLUTION Lopez brand and persona? Mapped men’s media landscape, discovering that the message for men lives in the extreme quadrants. Pinpointed the emotional territory that defines Jennifer Lopez Platform: Everybody has a fantasy. Even Jennifer. Found territory to break from the clutter while reinforcing the allure of the Jennifer Lopez brand. Provided storyline and executional recommendations to drive creative.
  6. 6. Perry Ellis Role: Head Planner/Ethnographer With an aging customer base, the Perry Ellis brand had to re-invent itself to appeal to a younger audience. SOLUTION Setting out across America - Miami, Chicago, NY, and Southern California. -to talk to mid- market male consumers, age 23-35. Key learning: At 27 or so, he withdraws from the outrageous or bold images of his youth, now wanting to project an image to his boss (and future wife) as a capable adult and provider. Opportunity: The PE target is confused by the clutter of extreme and irrelevent images in fashion. Perry Ellis can provide a refuge from the fashion jungle. Outcome: an unfashion graphic novel inspired campaign that garnered national media attention and changed the category
  7. 7. Crispin Porter & Bogusky for Victoria’s Secret PINK Role: Ethnographer (and head planner) How do we leverage this dog as an icon of the brand? What would the dog enforce about the girlish appeal of the product and the brand? SOLUTION Reached out to GOTS Girls to learn the significance of stuffed animals in their world. Key learning: stuffed animals and dogs express the delicate balance of ‘cuteness’ and adult sensuality/sexuality. Opportunity: PINK can become the tool in culture for "practicing sexy" for 15-24 year olds as they come of age. Outcome: an online viral campaign expanded the brand’s relationship with its target.
