26: Creative Campaigns: Designing Brand Activations & Events
This week on Trust Relations: The Podcast, April and Hamish share an in-depth discussion about creative brand activations, including notable examples from major brands including Frito Lay’s Potadomes at the Coachella festival in 2022 and the failed influencer event at last year’s Revolve Festival. They also discuss the reputational damage sustained by Southwest Airlines, in light of a recent report indicating that the airline’s recent holiday cancellations negatively impacted consumer trust of the air travel industry at large. As a bonus, the dynamic marketing duo also discuss Hamish’s experience at a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert earlier this month — and the brand backlash that ensued following their Sydney show.
