Wild Like Us / 野如我们

Beats By Dre

We created the Chinese New Year campaign for Beats By Dre to celebrate the Year of the Pig.

The traditional zodiac characterization of the pig stands in stark contrast to the youth of China today.

A pig is cute, lazy, kept in a pen, simple, docile…it is prey. China’s youth certainly aren’t pigs.

For this campaign, we told the story of this bold generation not via the pig, but rather via the boar…the pig’s renegade cousin. A boar is full of energy, proactive, free, untamed, brave, fierce, ambitious. It is a predator; it is wild!

The 野如我们 (WILD LIKE US) tagline we developed for the campaign riffs on the 野 character (which means “wild”) in the Chinese word for boar (“野猪”) which literally translates to “wild pig”.

野如我们 “WILD LIKE US” celebrates China’s young generation; a generation bravely moving creative culture forward, fearlessly expressing itself, and, simply put, hell bent on living a wild, carefree lifestyle. For those who aren’t already on board, the campaign was a call to action to join the movement.


为了庆祝2019中国新年的到来,我们为Beats By Dre品牌创作了猪年迎新主题创意内容。

当下的中国年轻人与传统生肖中猪的形象大相径庭。

“猪”给人的概念总是可爱的,被动的,简单的,温顺的。它们被圈养,是猎物。而中国年轻人并非如此。

这次我们希望通过对比“家猪”和“野猪”来讲述一个大胆的新一代的“野”性故事。“野猪”是狂野的,主动的,自由的,勇敢的。它们能量满满,雄心勃勃,是捕猎者。

“野如我们”从“野”出发,阐述展现了“野猪”的特性。

通过“野如我们”这一主题概念,我们将这一群新不走寻常路的新兴人类推至聚光灯下,将他们大胆推动文化前进,无畏表达自我,无所顾虑的“野性”特质展现出来。


Product Design

To support the campaign, we designed a Special Edition Beats Solo3 Wireless product.

The product features an obscured boar head created with clean, abstract, modern line-art. The boar head presents a fierce, brave expression that captures the attitude and outlook of today’s young generation. The white and grey colorway was chosen to be anything but the expected reds associated with Chinese New Year. The gold hits are a nod to holiday wishes of good fortune and prosperity.

We also designed the retail packaging for the product, as well as a special, limited-edition VIP packaging set.

The product is available online and in-store throughout Asia.


我们也为这次的主题内容设计了Beats Solo3特别限量版耳机。

产品侧身以简练,抽象并富现代感线条构成野猪头的形象。野猪头表达了一种无畏勇敢的精神,捕捉了当今年轻一代的态度。以白与灰的色彩搭配替代中国新年惯用的传统红色,再加以象征财源广进的金色点缀使其与众不同。

我们还同时为该产品设计了零售店版包装,及限量版VIP包装。

该款产品已在官网发售,也可在亚太地区的店铺内购买。

Year of the Monkey Campaign

Beats By Dre

We created a Chinese New Year campaign for Beats By Dre to celebrate the Year of the Monkey. The campaign theme of 感官新启 encourages us all to “Open Up” our senses and curiosity to new thoughts, to new ideas, and to new influences in order to “See It All,” “Hear It All,” and “Say It All” in the new year.

The keystone of the campaign was a product design collaboration with internationally renowned artist James Jean to create a custom headphone. The campaign also featured storytelling support from Chinese celebrities and tastemakers Jing Boran (actor, representing “See It All”), Ouyang Nana (cellist, representing “Hear It All”), and Rosie Yang (singer, representing “Say It All”).

The campaign ran in greater China and other Asia ​markets, with product available online and in-store throughout Asia.


为迎接中国传统猴年的到来,我们为Beats by Dre 品牌创作系列广告。广告主题“感官新启”激励我们在新的一年敞开心扉,打开好奇地迎接新的挑战与机遇,看心中所想,听心中所愿,说心中所念。

这支广告片的主角是与国际知名先锋艺术家James Jean合作设计的限量版耳机。该系列广告同时还邀请到井柏然 (演员, 代表”See it All”), 欧阳娜娜 (大提琴演奏家, 代表”Hear it All”), 杨凯琳 (歌手, 代表”Say it All”)来讲述与这款限量版耳机之间的故事。

该系列广告正广泛应用于大中华和亚太地区。产品已在官网发售也可在亚太地区的Apple店铺内购买。

 

The product design collaboration showcases James Jean’s signature style in a special edition “Year of the Monkey” Solo2 wireless headphone. The concept behind the design is an unexpected play on the traditional story of The Three Wise Monkeys who “see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil.” Jean turns the classic proverb on its head – exploring the way we see, hear, and communicate in a modern context. His three monkeys are no longer unknowing; they can see it all, hear it all, and say it all in an instant. They are awakened, empowered, and curious. Hidden in a camouflage of flowing, white-hot flames, the monkeys’ senses are open to the energy and inspiration of a new age.


这次推出的 Beats x James Jean 猴年特别版 Solo2 Wireless 耳机设计,展现了艺术家 James Jean独特的个人风格。这次 James 的创意来源于谚语故事中“三不猴”, 分别代表 -“非礼勿视, 非礼勿言, 非礼勿闻”, 而他在设计中将“三不猴”彻底颠覆, 用自己的方式进行重新诠释。在他的设计里, 三只猴子不再是无知无视无闻。三只猴子的好奇心被唤醒, 各种感官被打开, 从而获得源源不绝的灵感。2016年五行属火, James 也以火隐喻灵感, 而感官新启的三只猴子也分别隐身其中, 闪耀着创意之火, 创世之趋。


Product Packaging Design

For the campaign we also created 15 and 30 second animated spots, campaign key visuals featuring product and brand ambassadors, a series of short films featuring brand ambassadors, a 15 second spot that aired in New York City’s Times Square jumbotron screen, and a special packaging set for premium product seeding.


我们为该系列广告也创作了15秒及30秒版本的动画,广告主视觉,产品代言人广告大片, 系列产品代言人广告短片,及一支播放于纽约时代广场的15秒广告大片,还包括一套限量版产品包装设计。

City of Magic

Beats By Dre

To help celebrate Beats By Dre’s official entry into the China market, we created a short film titled “魔都 / City of Magic.” The film showcases renowned Shanghai-based illustrator and designer Veiray Zhang, and the unique relationship between the city and his creative process.

Together with the film, we worked with Veiray to create custom, limited-edition artwork and tee-shirts that were given away at the brand’s launch events in Shanghai.


为帮助Beats By Dre正式打入中国市场,我们为其创作了一条名为“魔都 / City of Magic” 的短片。短片表现的是上海知名插画师兼设计师的Veiray Zhang如何将对城市的独特情感融入其作品中的过程。

与此同时,我们和Veiray合作为该品牌在上海的活动创作了定制版限量T恤作为礼品。

Limited-Edition Headphone Design

Beats

We collaborated with leading-edge photographer and visual artist Chen Man to create a limited-edition Beats Solo2 headphone design celebrating the “Year of the Sheep.”

Combining elements of Chinese astrology and fortune telling together with her own hand-written calligraphy, Chen Man’s gold colorways usher in wealth, prosperity, and good fortune for the new year. The Chinese characters in the design, “Wei” (未) and “Yang” (羊 / Sheep), represent the year 2015 within the ancient Chinese “Stems and Branches” fortune-telling calendar and the traditional Zodiac astrology cycle, respectively. In a playful language pun, Chen Man adapts the pronunciations of “Wei” and “Yang” to become the English phrase “We Are Young,” a motif capturing the energy and spirit of China’s modern creative class.


我们与先锋摄影师兼视觉艺术家陈漫联手在农历未羊新年之际,将漫式视觉艺术注入活力节拍——呈现未羊年限量版Beats Solo2耳机。

陈漫从中国的天干五行、象征财富的符号中汲取灵感,以金色手写书法呈现未羊之概念,寓意新的一年里滚滚而来的财富、繁荣和好运。中国古代的天干地支算命日历和传统的十二生肖记录方式中,羊对应的是,所以2015年是未羊年;“Wei” ()“Yang” ()同时又与英文“We Young”谐音,而将“Wei”“Yang”的发音变成英文词组“We Are Young”(我们正年轻)恰恰契合了中国创意阶层的能量和精神。
