To increase brand awareness among the millennials by leveraging the FIFA World Cup.
Crizal, the world’s best-selling spectacle lenses brand wanted to connect with the younger audiences in India. Through DAN CCS Data, we observed that Crizal’s primary audience – those between 25 to 35 years - had ‘Sports’ amongst their top 3 digital media preferences.
The biggest international sporting event of 2018 was the FIFA World Cup. The challenge was to leverage the brand by reaching out to the young FIFA enthusiasts without shedding hefty money on event association. Which simply meant, we could not use any FIFA World Cup terminology, nor could we display or refer to any of the teams, players, the trophy, etc.
