Issue #57

In this issue, Bodyform became the first feminine hygiene brand to make it onto the Contagious cover. The brand defied convention and unabashedly addressed period taboos head on by putting real period blood in a TV spot, and we discuss the strategy behind it in our brand spotlight piece. Less controversially, we profile Ikea, a brand that is consistently celebrated for its quirky and innovative advertising; speak to best-selling author Seth Godin; and coach brands in the art of the apology. We discuss Amazon’s new ad business, analyse the consumer trends behind the booming resale market and figure out how Nike’s Dream Crazy campaign impacted the brand’s bottom line. Plus, our Small But Perfectly Formed startup section features recruitment robots, subscription furniture and revamped laundry detergent.
