Sonic identity that will build brand's power for years to come

IMMEDIATE SMILES

Challenge

Huggies is a global brand in need of branding tools that drive consistency across global assets.

The diaper product line focuses on both newborns and toddlers, resulting in two different target audiences. Part of the challenge was to understand how sonic could be flexible to content designed for these differentiated target audiences.
Additionally, the brand was being repositioned from “the joy of parenting” to the more emotional “bond between mother and child.”

Sonic identity

Inspired by the idea of the secure bond between mother and child, the brand’s sonic identity captures their evolving interaction.

It reflects the duality of the brand; a softer “cocoon-like” quality for newborns and an active quality for toddlers.

The sonic identity is very flexible. The inclusion of humming and giggling is often dependent on target audience and film content – allowing for a range of warm, slow, tender adaptations as well as quick, fun and playful spots.

Results

The flexibility is well illustrated across the brand’s video content. Active Baby commercials have more energy, more baby giggles/voices and capture the active toddler feel. Whereas Newborn commercials communicate ample warmth, tenderness and care.

The brand’s sonic identity is rich and adaptable, making it possible to create unique, branded music that can support the most intimate of stories as well as those aiming to be more disruptive.  (Gold Transform Award)
