Ethical Nutrients Does It Their Way In A New Campaign Celebrating Female Empowerment
SHARE
THIS



In a culture that celebrates perfection and a category that traditionally offers quick fixes, the rally cry of ‘LIVE LIFE RESILIENT’ is not picture-perfect, celebrity standards, but a celebration of real life.

Shot in crisp black and white, it features several strong, confident women each paying homage to a different facet of resilience in womanhood – from grace to strength, fearless accomplishment, and family connection, each performing the anthem track as they intersect and interact before uniting to support, reinforce and celebrate their collective strength.

Engaging a handful of leading independent strategic and creative consults, the team embarked on a consumer-centric journey of brand strategy and creative development.  The strength of the creative developed by Rem Bruijn and Christy Peacock, attracted interest from some of the best directors and photographers in the business.

Director Kyra Bartley of FINCH said, “it really does have everything that makes my heart sing: an epic track with a killer concept at its core, the opportunity for stunning visuals, and a vehicle to get badass women onscreen in an undeniably positive, life-affirming way.”

“Acclaimed photographer Christopher Ferguson, who has recently returned to the Gold Coast after working in New York, truly captured the strong spirit of the tribe of resilient women in striking portraits. ”

Alissa Moes, Marketing Manager said, “born from the lives of our consumers, the campaign insight addresses the tension that there is no silver bullet or quick fix when it comes to health. Instead, it acknowledges that the journey to good health will have its ups and downs, its struggles, and triumphs and in the end it’s a commitment to making purposeful and considered choices. Ultimately no matter where you are in the journey, you can live a life well lived.”

Sarah Sparks, Brand Manager, Ethical Nutrients, said, “the aim with this campaign is to connect the brand positioning closer to our customers’ definition of good health, closer to reality; that good health means being as resilient as you can be, having the reserves to recover quickly when needed, to help you flourish and squeeze the most out of life. Being resilient not just physically, but mentally and emotionally as well.”

The consumer healthcare category is increasingly commoditised and cluttered and in the last few years, Ethical Nutrients had lost its clear position in the market. This was then reflected in sales.  With conservative budgets compared to its mainstream competitors, the comms needed to be powerful to cut-through category sameness.

The new brand platform and campaign, launching Sunday May 2nd, aims to elevate the brand and differentiate it from the mainstream, to drive preference once again with both recommenders and consumers.  The $2.4m launch campaign will run for 17 weeks across TV, digital video and social media platforms supported with OOH and Spotify media.
