Stay in Play Activations
An activation where attendees discover a normalized conversation around periods, featuring new adidas Techfit period-proof tights that protect an athletes every move.
Archrival Insights uncovered that athletic brands need to address the challenging moments female athletes face before getting to the physical moment. This insight helped solidify a creative strategy to drive awareness and gain credibility of a new adidas Techfit Period Proof line.
We developed a series of grassroot and community-driven activations which normalize the conversation about periods through open communication. The new TechFit Period Proof Tights were created using insights from menstruators around the world, with statistics showing that 1 in 4 girls drop out of sport during adolescence citing fear of leakage as a key factor.
The tights are designed to give those who menstruate an extra layer of protection when worn with a tampon or pad so they can stay in play throughout their cycle.
At sporting events, attendees discover a normalized conversation around periods through authentic messaging, education, relaxation and empowerment.
