Coca-Cola • Happiness

Tijdens het congres Trends in Kids-, Jongeren- & Familiemarketing op 29 september gaat Kevin Thompson (Joint MD bij Tapestry) in op de Coca-Cola case: Why Generation Z is Choosing Happiness.

Daarbij staan de volgende 3 elementen centraal:

  • What happiness means to young people today
  • How this differs from previous generations
  • How society inhibits and supports teens’ happiness

Kevin geeft alvast een kleine tip van de sluier.


Coca-Cola stands for happiness and optimism. It decided to commission an in-depth study on teen happiness as it felt there nothing comparable that focused on how young people choose

happiness rather than chase it.

The study explores what happiness actually means to young people today and how this differs from preceding generations. Along the way we learnt how teens can teach us about their happiness and how society helps or hinders their efforts to attain it.

To tackle this subject requires a comprehensive approach. Tapestry undertook a quantitative study with teenagers aged 15-19 in eight European markets. This examined happiness from a number of angles and led to a number of important findings and themes. These were presented, debated and refined in an expert salon put together by Flamingo’s Cultural Intelligence team in London, and further tested through one-to-one interviews with neuroscientists and prominent teen commentators and bloggers.

We’re a new type of research agency formed with the point of view that the world is awash with information. Understanding how everything connects and what it Tapestry all means is the new challenge for market research.

This is what we do at Tapestry. At our core we’re market researchers, which means we get consumers, wherever they are and whatever they do. But we go further. We connect information in any format – qual, quant, sales, media & social data – to help you answer the toughest questions.

What really makes us different is our breadth of perspective and our understanding of consumers. This drives our thought-provoking study design. It’s also what makes our output stand out; a report distilling complex data into an interesting story, an infographic or even software that’s integrated into your planning process – whatever you need to connect to the meaning behind the information.
