Modibodi Fights Period Taboo's with Progressive Campaign ‘The New Way to Period’

Creative 208 Add to collection

Australia’s #1 selling period and leak-proof underwear brand, Modibodi, has launched its latest campaign ‘The New Way to Period’ from Emotive

Modibodi Fights Period Taboo's with Progressive Campaign ‘The New Way to Period’

The campaign marks the creative debut for Emotive after being appointed to lead brand strategy and campaign work globally and continues Modibodi’s crusade to normalise menstruation and raise awareness of a more comfortable, sustainable alternative to disposable pads, liners and tampons.

Research undertaken by Modibodi shows almost one in three young girls are afraid of talking about periods. The pioneering brand is on a mission to replace fear and shame with understanding, swap disposable for sustainable, break down taboos and, overall,help everyone embrace their bodies.

“Advertising for personal hygiene products has come a long way in the seven years since we started Modibodi, but many brands still feel the need to hide or gloss over the very natural process of having your period,” says Modibodi CEO and founder, Kristy Chong.

“‘The New Way to Period’ shows the real side of menstruation and reminds us that not only are we allowed to feel however we want when we have our period, but that we have other options besides eco-damaging disposable pads, liners and tampons,” continues Kristy.   

‘The New Way toPeriod’ is a long-term creative platform that champions confidence, celebrates individual freedom, embraces diversity and encourages womxn to step towards a more comfortable, sustainable future.

Jardin Anderson, senior creative at Emotive, commented: “For Too long we’ve been told how we should feel about our periods. It’s been a pleasure to help herald in ‘the new way to period’ with a brand bold enough to lean into the beauty of normality and eschew all the hyperbole so often seen in this category.”

Directed by award-winning Sydney-based director Dani Pearce from Revolver, the script follows the journey of multiple womxn, each with their own nuance and story as they embrace ‘the new way to period’.

“To honour Modibodi philosophy of inclusivity it was imperative that the film captureall womxn, all stories. My vision was to create a film that is part of a much larger social dialogue, with the aim to normalise womxn’s lived experiences,”says Dani.

The campaign launches via film with a range of edits created specifically for TV and social.

It also features extensive OOH, social,influencer seeding and experiential activations running across Australia, the US and the UK.

Linda Hosamsooi, group client director, MediaCom commented: “It has been really inspiring to be part of the Modibodi journey over the past couple of years. The new film will allow us to introduce new ATL channels to the mix that will broaden our reach,making more womxn aware of the amazing products Modibodi has to offer.”

*The term womxn is one of several alternative spellings of the English word woman, or the plural women. It is used to include transgender, non binary and genderqueer individuals.
