“Rather than portray the company as just a large Chinese manufacturer, we chose to shoot in Europe with a European production team to reflect the truly international outlook and values that are at the heart of Huawei,” said Spencer Wong, managing director of McCann Hong Kong and national chief creative officer for China. The commercial transfer from one demographic to another to showcase how information is obtained and shared by each individual.
The objective of the commercial is to 'strike a balance’ between Huawei’s range of products and their applicability to make people's daily lives easier. One of the biggest challenges for Huawei is to generate more awareness as a consumer brand. The company has been a core hardware provider for many mobile brands including Vodafone and Docomo. This branding campaign aims to give Huawei more personality and a human touch.
