Culture Kitchen was born while observing the huge cultural and social change happening in 2020 as a result of Covid-19. As we reflected on the changes brands will need to make in order to stay culturally relevant, we decided to design tools to help marketers adapt their brands. Culture Kitchen combines cultural insight with marketing, branding and behavioural change know-how to help you plan your brand's future growth.
WHAT WE DO
There are three core applications for our work:
With people’s needs, values and outlook shifting, now is a great time to review your brand (and brand communications) and adjust and optimise for a post-Covid world. We can help you with all aspects of branding, strategic and tactical, from redefining your brand purpose and positioning, to fine-tuning packaging to better tap into emerging category codes.
Covid-19 has accelerated e-commerce five years forward. E-commerce platforms are introducing elements of gamification that radically change the customer experience and increasingly compete with traditional retailing. In-store experiences are having to be adapted to address people’s safety concerns. These dynamics are changing the way that brands are experienced and chosen. Let us help you identify the implications for your brand.
With new emerging need states comes new opportunities for innovation. This could be opportunities for entirely new products or services, new variants or tweaking existing variants to improve relevance. Our insights and tools will help you discover new opportunities.
