Always #LikeAGirl

Girls experience the biggest drop in confidence during puberty, around the same time as their first period. As a society, we contribute to that drop, often without even recognizing it. Always wanted to change this, so they created a rallying cry to reverse the meaning of a common playground insult to champion girls confidence through the #LikeAGirl campaign. #LikeAGirl gave life to our brand purpose and inspired our target. It created a global movement with 76MM views and spread beyond our wildest expectations!

Smellcome to Manhood

Since 2002, AXE dominance in the body sprays category had gone largely uncontested. With over 80% of the market they have a monopoly over young guys. So how could Old Spice compete? We used moms to turn our sprays into a symbol of transition from boyhood to manhood, and tell that story from the perspective of their moms. The campaign helped Old Spice win the battle of the buzz and engagement as well as growing the business in double digits for the first time in the history of the brand.

Generation Know

U by Kotex led the fem care category in being the cool, edgy brand, but competitors were attacking us as style over substance. We needed to build meaning around U by Kotex, making it a force of genuine, positive change for girls. Taboos around vaginas damage young women, so we created Generation Know to bring about the first generation of girls who were empowered and informed about their vaginas. Hundreds of thousands of girls helped us spread knowledge, change societys views on feminine health, and increase sales 18%.
