case study
multicultural engagement

How do you reach and engage today’s incredibly diverse, multicultural audience?

MED-Project ran into this challenge as they rapidly scaled operations from a single county in California to a 5-state initiative, targeting tens of millions of people across the United States.


  • Cultural differences
  • Language barriers
  • Diverse media habits

Marketing is not a one-size-fits-all discipline.

Achieving MED-Project’s goal of driving impact meant starting with a deep, data-driven understanding of the brand’s diverse multicultural audiences, and tailoring a unique voice and media mix for each group.

In addition, MED-Project would need to partner with large, trusted retail chains and healthcare providers to develop in-person, experiential exposure for under-represented communities.
