With Russian society being constantly in flux, brands face the challenge of having to respond to shifting values and gender roles. This is why conducting trend research is key: it explores the context of the cultural shift and identifies emerging opportunities. The dynamism and inner contrariness of this ongoing change can be best explored with a semiotical approach. It extracts the true meaning behind Russian coded language and provides a deeper layer of insight. Look at media De:Coded approach is robust and signifies a great understanding of Russian cultural idiosyncrasies. It is highly valuable for brands that aim to grow in Russia today and tomorrow.
