“Mine is truly perfect!" – medi receives two awards for empowerment campaign

Real patients and their authentic stories are the focus of medi's 360-degree design campaign, which was launched in 2021. For the brand and campaign work on the variety of patterns and colours in vein, lymphoedema and lipoedema therapy, the family-owned company medi received the German Brand Award as “Winner” in the categories “Excellence in Brand Strategy and Creation – Brand Communication – 360° Campaign” and “Excellence in Brand Strategy and Creation – Brand Experience of the Year.”

Constant dialogue and communication with all target groups on an equal footing is particularly important to medi. In the empowerment campaign, the patients share their individual experiences with the condition and compression therapy. In 360-degree communication, the medi brand can be experienced and leave you with a positive feeling across different target groups and platforms.

medi once again received the German Brand Award in 2019

According to the German Brand Institute and the German Design Council, medi is one of the best product and company brands in the industry. This year, medi received the German Brand Award again, this time in the “Excellent Brands” competition class in the “Health & Pharmaceuticals” category. This is the fifth German Brand Award medi has received since 2016. This highlights the stability of the brand and the continuous development of the company.
“We always think outside the box, look for new approaches and continue to develop our expertise on an ongoing basis”, says Managing Director at medi, Dirk Treiber. He is proud that the strong culture as a family business also influences the medi brand: “Our brand is shaped by our employees to a large extent. They convey our values, such as openness and empathy towards our target groups, and our commitment to continuously reassessing the status quo and developing new products to the outside world.”

Communication with target groups as equals

The entire brand image, both internally and externally, is based on the medi values which form the basis for actions.

“For example, this also includes communicating with our target groups as equals and thus demonstrating closeness. Our strong solution culture, as well as the particularly informal and open style at medi, are also included in this. We like to refer to this as the so-called ‘medi spirit’ which is very clear even to people outside the company and which, together with the people at medi of course, characterises the brand and brings it to life.”
