The CampaignEmojis are the world’s new universal language, transcending borders and cultures. Encouraging and helping users to make emojis on his or her smartphone as personal and diverse as possible, the user-generated, personalized emojis function as a message for and proof of diversity in German society, spread with every single chat from users' smartphones.
ExecutionBy automatically turning selfies into individual emojis, Samsung gathered Germans of all kinds around a literally iconic message of positivity. Hundreds of thousand people started to use their own customized emojis sets, promoting diversity with every chat or post over the course of more than three months. The campaign launched via a print ad in Germany’s largest newspaper, BILD, and posts on Samsungs facebook channel, which directed the audience to the campaign website and to download the mobile app. Interactive displays and public installations in Germany’s capital, Berlin, amplified the online-campaign. Finally, on the annual national “Day of Germany Unity”, all emojis where brought together on the Brandenburg Gate in a spectacular light show, creating a new sign of diversity.
• Total media impressions: 67 million • Social reach: 20 million • App downloads during campaign activation: over 41000 • Unique emojis created by users: 220.000+ • Market share increase during campaign period: 7%
