Brand communication suffers from over-saturation, fragmentation, inconsistency, or worse a sheer meaninglessness in the local markets worldwide. What's lacking is the cultural relevancy, which drives innate value of brands and triggers purchase behaviour. Globally unified and adapted brand contents often fail to resonate with the local specifics of people and culture. Semiotics can serve as a great instrument to increase cultural relevancy and stimulate brand growth from bottom up. In this presentation, you'll find the methodological approach to increasing brand's cultural relevancy and a couple of practical examples of optimising brand communication in the Czech Republic. The focus here is on redefining meaning in the beer and detergent categories, as well as the meaning trajectory of femininity in the Czech cultural context.
