Part 1 - Update on Marketing trends 2021/2022
Part 2 - Authenticity: finding our lost paradises
Uncertainty is undoubtedly the key word for 2020/2021: health, social, environmental, professional. Uncertainty has ruled every part of our lives for - soooo - long months. Going back to basics, rediscovering our fundamental values, in short reconnecting with the basics, was obvious: cooking with the family, watching an old movie, listening to vinyl records, gardening or tinkering, strengthening intergenerational ties ... a real remedy for anxiety! There is also a marketing of nostalgia. Some brands are increasingly relying on these safe havens, such as Peugeot, which has "upcycle" a very 60s logo, or Danone with the unwavering Bonne Maman. Nostalgia in the sense of going back to basics has a future. On the other hand, we should be wary of it when it brings us back to an era of excess absolutely incompatible with the expectations of the new generations. Authenticity in 2021 means first of all putting things on a sustainable basis, planning yes, but with the right foundations.
