We collaborated with the client to develop a concept that could naturally fuse the need to drive traffic with a compelling story and visuals. The core of the campaign strategy was to select cast who were on the cusp of making big waves in their respective spheres of influence which echoed the position of the brand.

The concept was simple: discovering talent that were on the same upward curve of influence that the brand found themselves on the cusp of.
Strategically, this would mean that the client would enjoy the benefit of the exponential upward curve of influence that unfolded for each influencer while acquiring their ambassadorship at a time where they are still at the beginning of their growth process.
Telling their stories authentically from the perspective of the brand's story is at the core of the creative strategy, in order to ensure that each influencer's audience would be authentically connected to the Mobicel process.
They are confident in forging a unique path for themselves by taking the road less traveled.
Everyone involved in the collaboration benefited off of each other's growth and exposure while being introduced to new audiences which was an all round exponential success.
