Can we decipher a country and its people changing its course from being ultraconservative to the modern era?
How do brands prepare for a country which has changed drastically and at speed? Three truths defined our approach: 1. Young country that has often been misperceived, 2. Gap between what is said, seen and what’s real, and 3. People who have turned apathetic to the patronizing tones and narratives. We used an approach that relies on deep-down sociocultural landscaping and how that manifests in the popular expressions - social media, advertising, blogs and vlogs
What was new/different
Used Semiotics based approach to determine the trajectory of change and arrive at cultural ‘Territories and codes’ as they get manifested in the communication
Why was it actionable
Most insights are ‘plain truth in hindsight’, the truth that shouts out loud and is so apparently authentic - we arrived at many such truths
The communication strategy evolved with the new findings basis the sociocultural insights.
