We published the new TVC on FB and got thousands of messages from our community asking “Oh my God guys, what’s this song, it’s amazing, how can I find this song?!
We knew we had a great asset, and this pushed us to develop more and more content.

discovery / analysis
Our goal was to uncover current trends within the global music festival market and identify key festivals in each respective region as best correlating to Fruttare’s “It’s all good” brand ethos. .
We analyzed festival genres, artists, attendance, sponsorships, etc. We also identified musical characteristics that would define the sound of summer and the sound of Fruttare.
Analyzing the sonic landscape
We analyzed 70+ brands and 150+ TVCs, providing case studies on best of breed branding, competitive positioning, and global and local trends.
We looked at the musical characteristics of these communications and looked for use of popular song, consistency of sonic identity, mood, instrumentation, and sonic strategy.
Fruttare needed a precisely targeted musical sensibility would ensure Fruttare does not cannibalize other Unilever ice cream brands. This led to the most comprehensive sonic analysis of global summer music festivals and global ice cream brands ever conducted.
Creating an ecosystem around Fruttare’s “It’s All Good” ethos lived at the heart of a sonic strategy connecting music festivals to how millennials relate to summer around the world, resulting in an anthem and sonic identity system that would tie it all together
