Sample Case Study:

Rexona Teens: Love
Warc Prize, Shortlisted, 2010

Rexona Teens' strategy hadn't been working well. A way of achieving and sustaining an increase in share needed to be found, without spending huge sums of money. The resulting campaign's starting point was talk "with them" rather than "to them". Along came Sophie, a cartoon doll girl made in the image of a 15 year old girl who could function in multiple formats. The sustainable learning: by creating a property rather than an idea, an advertiser can create and sustain communications cheaply and effectively.

The Future of Research
Wendy Gordon, Mark Ratcliff, Rebecca Wynberg, Paul Edwards, Richard Helyar, Sid Simmons, Sarah Fryer, Rhidian Taylor, Yvonne O'Brien, Admap, July/August 2010, pp.18-23

Admap convened a group of industry pundits to discuss the future of research. They agreed that harnessing the enthusiasm of the new activist consumer in practical ways, while making sense of merged data from multiple sources, are key to improving the quality of research. Insights from the discussion included the notion that what researchers should care about is to understand real people, not data sets; and that there is a need to get to different sources of information about the what, where, when and how of behaviour, in order to understand the 'why'.
