CHALLENGE: The client was looking for promoting its new products on the market.
PROCESS: The client had a very specific vision for the company and its business model. After assessing the situation and exploring the challenge, we ideated looking for the profile of an ideal customer of our client, and then elaborated different ways of communicating the client's value to its ideal customer.
