The power of insights and trend knowledge 

Strategic foresight is the most valuable tool you can adopt to identify future relevancy, earn media and move heads and hearts of your target audience. My approach is grounded in trend research and insights, allowing me to develop a deep understanding of how global value shifts change attitudes and behaviour and how macro- and micro trends create cultural manifestations that we can make your brand associated with. 

How To Strengthen your Triggers

For communication to be authentic and break through the noise, there needs to be a credible correlation between what the brands promise to fulfil and how we build our communication to change hearts and minds of the target audience.

I believe great communication flourish from a disruptive intersection of trend insights, brand experiences, PR and cultural manifestations. I craft stories and concepts to create experiences, that engage consumers and moves freely between earned, paid and owned channels.

Building Authentic Connections 

20220813_110323_Original.jpg

Consumers want authentic connections with brands. It means they want to know what value do you bring to their community and what makes your brand tick.

 

The Concept of Galaxy Bucket List Test Trips was created with the objective to attract sport & lifestyle journalists from the nordic countries to test Samsungs new smart sport watch, Watch5Pro. The watch is a genuinely good sports watch, but to engage sport-lifestyle journalists the test needed to be authentic and extreme, they needed to genuinely learn something new and it should be a test they would remember and talk about with their friends.

Power up Brand Storytelling through Brand Books and Editorial Look Books

A Brand Book or an editorial Look Book should act as a mirror of your brand soul, it should connect buyers, consumers and press with your brand and brand stories. It should be a conversation starter where you are able to position your brand in the head of the consumer as you wish to be perceived. 

 

I work with clients to create publications, either as a full service provider through my network of designers and photographers or together with your in-house team. I usually take care of the content strategy, storytelling ideas, copy writing and visual direction. This could be for brand books, editorial look books, sustainability reports, presentations and folders.
