Resurgent Puzzles

Brands are launching new puzzle products amid COVID-19 boredom

Trend - Amid the COVID-19 lockdown, brands in various industries—ranging from QSR to the music industry—have launched new puzzles. These games feature distinctive features such as monochromatic coloring, branded imagery, and meditation-specific concepts.

Insight - Homebound boredom in the face of COVID-19 has prompted many consumers to focus on traditional methods of occupation to help pass the time. As consumers are restricted from entertaining themselves with their usual activities, many have turned to traditional forms of recreation that occupy both their hands and minds. Moreover, activities that provide a social media-friendly aesthetic have soared, as they allow consumers to share their quarantine-appropriate behaviors with their peer groups.
Workshop Question - How can your brand support consumers through the "new normal"?
