  • WPP credits new business ‘momentum’ as revenue slump eases in Q3
    In the three months to October WPP managed to almost halve its revenue slump, following the financial shockwaves of early 2020.

  • We need to demystify design for human outcomes and holistic experiences
    As we are living in an experience-led economy, Andrew Au, the regional managing director at Eight Inc says it is experiences that differentiate, and this is the economic and business case for experiences to be at the heart of how companies should think about their business. It seems fitting to start a piece about the importance of design by citing one of Dieter Rams’ principles of good design*. Number 10 states that good design involves as little design as possible. I love that. When a good design is present it shouldn’t draw attention to itself. It fades into the background and allows ... read more

  • Personal Covid-19 experiences determine how people will vote for president and brands
    While most of the discussion around Covid-19 and the election has focused on the safety voting itself, public sentiment surrounding the pandemic may have even larger unanticipated impacts on the election and on brands, according to new research from Huge. Nicole Riesenberger explains more. The nearly eight million Covid-19 cases in the US will likely influence more than the outcome of this year’s presidential election—it could also determine which brands come out ahead. In a recent study conducted by Huge, we found that Americans’ preferred candidate in the 2020 election could be determined equally by political ideology or party affiliation as by ... read more

  • Stodgy brands, not DTCs, are the new millennial darlings
    After years of being overlooked, traditional brands are winning over younger buyers. Nathalie Con, vice-president, strategy director at Giant Spoon, tells us why. As the saying goes: ‘Never skimp on things between you and the ground: cars, shoes, mattresses.‘  My partner and I wanted a real mattress. Our 30-something bodies needed to upgrade to a wueen. Suddenly names like Sealy, Stearns and Serta meant something to us. We knew these brands weren’t cooked up in a white space lab at Stanford Business School. We ended up buying an exciting mattress from an unexciting brand that, to our surprise, cost about ... read more

  • Self-proclaimed ‘underdog’ Yorkshire tea on finding its brand voice
    Yorkshire Tea’s steady road to cultivating personality through TV and social media is yielding returns with the brewer currently holding the title of Britain’s best-selling tea brand and defying a market decline.

  • CTV is the next big focus area for fraud and brand safety
    Connected TV (CTV) represents one of the biggest opportunities in advertising today. The appeal of CTV to advertisers is clear when one considers the fast growth of CTV audiences, the measurability of digital video, and the appeal of sight, sound, and motion on the living room’s biggest screen. However, trust is the key to unlocking this potential. As with every new or emerging channel, advertisers are excited, but also cautious. They want to know that their media investment is protected, and they want to be able to evaluate the efficacy of the channel in the same manner that they do ... read more
