In most African countries extreme sports have a small following and little relevance. In order to credibly infiltrate the market our Energy Drink client (who built their brand on the back of extreme sports), needed to find and capitalize on alternate activities that could be a substitute for conventional “extreme” sports across the African continent.
IGI worked with consumers to identify key subcultures, scenes and emerging activities across 9 African countries. We also identified the key influencers in each new activity and then develop an insight based activation plan.
By identifying the key activities and influencers the brand was able to credibly infiltrate the African market whilst staying true to their brand essence.
IGI hosted a series of consumer co-creation session where young consumers were tasked with designing new products.
IGI worked with consumers to produce photo diaries, snapshots from shopping & home visits & powerful films displaying a united archetypal African consumer.
IGI facilitated a panel of heavy viewers and collaborated with them to understand their viewing habits, preference and needs in order to determine how and why men watch what they do.
