Nokia E7 Success Is What You Make It

Nokia is working with Wieden+Kennedy in “Sucess is What You Make It”, a new integrated advertising campaign for the Nokia E7 smartphone. With this device, Nokia intend to break all the conventions and encourage people to define their own success, wherever they are. Success is what you make it. It is no longer just about your latest car, your new house, or the amount of money you earn. It is more personal and human than that. It is about looking at life from a different angle, your angle. Television commercials, run online, in television and cinema settings, combine spontaneous and authentic images in combination with surprising surroundings and global casting.

The films will be complemented by a strategic two-tier print campaign. The first set of print, photographed by Dan Tobin Smith, highlights the unique features of the product through punchy headlines linked to the E7 and different definitions of success. The second set, shot by Paulo Martins, has a more lifestyle-feel, focusing on small human success stories, demonstrating how success can differ from individual to individual.
