Approach Desire for Meaning – Need for Connection – Sobriety
To illustrate our commitment to actively participate in the reforms our world needs as branding, marketing, and communication professionals, we have designed and created three "fake real advertisements," produced according to the prevailing rules in marketing communication today.
We displayed them as posters in the street and on social media, overloaded with letters cut out from magazines: Desire for Meaning – Need for Connection – Sobriety.
Our goal: Illuminate how brands and their campaigns work to feed never-satisfied impulses – the engine of hyper-consumption (1), rather than addressing deep human needs to encourage responsible and sustainable consumption.
Our question: Can marketing and communication honestly contribute to a sustainably better world?
Our answer: Yes, provided they strive to promote and develop a socially and environmentally sustainable economy, and work to change the systems of meaning to reform the engines of consumption.
How? Our methodological and practical approach answers this question.
