What makes you feel ALIVE?

A marketing campaign I created for a wellness centre in Hong Kong called Alive Wellness. Taking a cue from the company’s name, I came up with the concept: “Feel Alive” to promote the end goal of the services on offer, i.e. to enable clients to feel their best holistically.

Personal Interaction

To bring an element of personal interaction to the thus far one-sided approach to marketing, I started with the question, “What makes you feel alive?” This was written on a white board in the centre for people to add their statements to.

At first SIP

April 2016. An ad I wrote for a restaurant’s new affordable lunch menu. They asked for a personal tone for the article. I also took most of the photos. The restaurant’s name is SIP. The article was published on WeChat.

A Taste of Europe

July 2015. An advertisement I wrote for a food and craft market in Xiamen. I created the theme for the event and wrote this and other articles to promote the market. The images were provided by the businesses being advertised. All I was given was the name of the business and the product they will be selling. I created this content for them. It was used as a preview to the market and received 865 views.

A craft market featuring European food – coming up Friday 10th July…
