Case Study

THE CHALLENGE

NIVEA noticed that searching for high-quality visual content on stock image marketplaces has proven to be an ineffective model. Moreover, it didn’t fit their “visual first” marketing strategy. The actual brand-like aesthetics and style were either impossible to find or took to much time gathering the right resources. Plus, photo and video shoots required hefty budgets and a lot of effort on the brand’s side was spent to get mediocre results.

NIVEA was ready to discover an innovative way to create customized visuals that draw an emotional connection to the brand messaging.

THE SOLUTION

The Foap Content Team prepared 129 creative briefs each with a specific goal and requirements to cover every aspect of NIVEA’s brand aesthetics. To simplify the process and make Foap a valued partner we divided the creative briefs into 6 content themes to drive excitement within our 3 MM Content Creators. With help of Foap’s Content Curators, we were able to build a robust library of fresh and new visuals that met NIVEA’s requirements and reinforced their brand storytelling. For some of the briefs, NIVEA’s products were sampled to numerous hand-picked creators ahead of their products hitting the stores.
