NIVEA MEN: the sto­ry of male skincare

How to connect with a target group that doesn’t actually exist.

It wasn’t all that long ago that male skin­care was regard­ed as not very man­ly. As such, the brand was seek­ing to con­quer a mar­ket that didn’t real­ly exist.

For all the men out there, NIVEA MEN is a bit like a good mate. It doesn’t talk too much and, when it does, it isn’t bor­ing. It only gives tips when they are real­ly need­ed and, oth­er­wise, is a pret­ty cool guy with a great sense of humour.

Over the years, we have helped build and shape the NIVEA MEN brand. While Angela Merkel became Ger­man Chan­cel­lor, while the iPhone rev­o­lu­tionised the world and while our agency changed names more than once, the NIVEA MEN brand was being sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly devel­oped and expand­ed – and led into a dig­i­tal age. And it is now the world’s num­ber-one face care brand and the most pop­u­lar male cos­met­ics brand of all. That’s what we call ‘brand leadership’.

Ready for anything

When men such as Big Wave world cham­pi­on Sebas­t­ian Steudt­ner go surf­ing, they don’t do things by halves. Opti­mum prepa­ra­tion is, of course, essen­tial. And this also means NIVEA MEN when it comes to skincare.

The inside story

In sev­er­al dig­i­tal con­tent snip­pets, we went behind the scenes with the world cham­pi­on. How does a big-wave surfer train? What do they eat? What are they scared of? And how on earth do they pre­pare for waves as tall as skyscrapers?

Cookbook "Erfolgsrezepte"

Cook­ing and healthy eat­ing are hot top­ics among men. That’s why brand ambas­sador Jogi Löw received stel­lar sup­port for the annu­al NIVEA MEN cam­paign: Tim Mälz­er. Togeth­er, they pro­duced the cook­book ‘Erfol­gsrezepte’ (‘Recipes for Suc­cess’). Top-qual­i­ty food that tastes delicious.

Life of a face

There are still men who think ‘what’s the point of mois­tur­is­ing my face?’ There are count­less answers to this ques­tion. We illus­trat­ed a few of them, mak­ing it clear to even the most scep­ti­cal of men that the male face doesn’t have it easy. And that they should take good care of it.

Even the best coach doesn’t cel­e­brate their finest achieve­ments alone. With this in mind, we brought three leg­ends of Ger­man foot­ball on board to help Jogi in this inte­grat­ed campaign.
