"WE THE PEOPLE" CAMPAIGN

MULTI-CHANNEL CAMPAIGN   |   MEDIA BUY   | CONCEPT

In response to Donald Trump’s election and proposed Muslim ban, as well as the corresponding wave of anti-immigrant sentiment, we were inspired to make a statement in support of immigrant communities in the US. We also felt it was essential to educate the public that the protections afforded by the First Amendment apply to everyone, regardless of citizenship or immigration status.


ADWEEK  |  HUFFINGTON POST  |  CREATIVITY  |  ACLU.ORG  |  VOGUE  |  MARCOMM  |  THE DRUM  |  DIVERGE


SEARCHING FOR THE SIGNAL

Emergence Creative, in partnership with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), launched a thought-provoking campaign in April 2017 to remind the public of their First Amendment rights and reassure immigrants that they too are protected by the U.S. Constitution. Conceived as a reaction to President Trump’s attempted Muslim ban, the campaign features the First Amendment in Arabic, Spanish, and English. Large-scale installations in iconic locations like Times Square increased visibility and sparked conversation.

EMERGENCE

The First Amendment applies to everyone, and the principles it upholds mean the same thing in every language. Freedom of religion, speech, press, and protest are core American values that Trump and his supporters have repeatedly trampled. To highlight the universality of these rights in a simple, memorable way, we leveraged the power of the original text itself.

IMPACT

“When Emergence approached us with this idea, I knew we had to do it,” said Stacy Sullivan, associate director of strategic communications at the ACLU. “So much of the work we do at the ACLU revolves around the First Amendment. It grants freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom to peaceably protest, as well as the right to practice your religion without being discriminated against for doing so. Seeing it translated into other languages, at a time when President Trump’s rhetoric has been so hostile to immigrants, really struck a chord with us.”

INDUSTRY - URBAN INNOVATION

POWERED BY PEOPLE

BRANDING   |   WEB   |   VIDEO

We started with the question: what makes cities “smart”? The current landscape of “smart cities” events focuses on technology and large corporate solutions. We saw an opportunity to differentiate this event by embracing the human element.


SEARCHING FOR THE SIGNAL

 

Smart Cities NYC 2017 was the first event of its kind, bringing together leading voices from business, government, and the social sector to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing cities in the 21st century.

After a successful inaugural conference, Emergence Creative and its partners will host Smart Cities NY 2018 at Pier 36 in Manhattan.

EMERGENCE

Our landscape analysis and strategic conversations led to the insight that people make cities smart.  

Using this insight as a guiding principle, we developed a launch video, logo, visual identity, and print/digital collateral to build interest and engage diverse audiences. We selected the Brooklyn Navy Yard as the location to break the mold of traditional conferences by re-imagining the event as a World’s Fair for the 21st century.

IMPACT

 

In its inaugural year, Smart Cities NYC generated extensive interest from sponsors and partners. With speakers and attendees from more than 300 cities in more than 30 countries, Smart Cities NYC was a truly global event.

The conference also maintained strong local ties by cultivating high level support from the NYC Mayor’s Office, the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and influential media institutions like Vice. A full list of sponsors from the private sector, government, technology, and academia appears on the next slide.

"TIME DONE" CAMPAIGN

MULTI-CHANNEL CAMPAIGN   |   CONCEPT


The concept behind “Time Done,” which was conceived by Emergence Creative and features the song “The Tree” by Sons of Bill, is the familiar image of “hash marks” on a cell wall, counting the number of days until release. Here, those marks will follow the released individual back into his “normal” life, serving as a metaphor for the enduring barriers he faces as he tries to adjust. The viewer follows the protagonist from his release and reunion with his family to various attempts to reestablish his life: volunteering as a coach for his daughter, applying for a job, and trying to register to vote. The dejection and frustration he and his family experience as a result of these barriers demonstrates the difficulty of truly moving on and finding redemption. The spot closes with facts related to incarceration in Florida—where the campaign will launch—and a powerful question: When will our sentence end?

ASJ approached us because they wanted to highlight the many barriers and restrictions that people living with felony convictions face upon release from prison, of which most Americans are unaware. The number of people convicted of a crime classified as a felony offense has skyrocketed over the past four decades: There are more than 20 million people (1 in 12 adults)  in the U.S. with a current or prior felony conviction, about four times more than in 1980. These individuals face hundreds of restrictions on employment, professional licensing, voting, housing, benefits, and more. Too often, these barriers prevent them from earning a decent living, supporting their families, and becoming productive members of the community. Rather than relying solely on facts and statistics, we sought to tell a human story that would inspire empathy from the audience.

“Time Done” is just the most recent example of Emergence Creative’s unique approach to social impact advertising.

SAY HELLO TO YOUR BETTER SELF

BRANDING   |   MULTI-CHANNEL UX   |  WEB      

Non-compliance (failure to take medications as directed) is a significant problem in the management of chronic disease, especially among older patients. Assessing patient behaviors and attitudes, we segmented the audience and identified appropriate communications to overcome barriers to successful treatment in each target group.

Mockup_Leaflet_3.jpg

SEARCHING FOR THE SIGNAL

Moxie is a wellness platform that empowers people to live a good life on their own terms. It helps elderly patients track their activity and wellbeing, monitor their medications, and learn about health. The audience is people over 65 years old who have serious and chronic medical conditions.

 

EMERGENCE

Market research showed that “nagging” reminders about healthy living and proper use of medication can alienate patients, so we developed a fun, quirky character to convey these messages in the form of an online patient portal, direct mail, text messaging, daily check-ins, gamification, and rewards. Varying the content of messaging and delivery format keeps patients engaged and motivated.

IMPACT

A randomized phase III trial of MOXIE vs direct economic intervention began in December 2015 in Alberta, Canada.

Thus far, hundreds of patients have been randomized, with an overall accrual goal of approximately 4700.

The primary endpoint of the trial is patient survival.

STRATEGY    |    BRAND IDENTITY    |    WEB

Healthy minds unleash the hidden potential of communities. Emergence worked closely with GDI (The Global Development Incubator) to develop a multi-stakeholder initiative around mental health. Our research demonstrated that mental health is often discussed in negative terms, focusing on the emotional, economic, and social burden of illness on sufferers and communities alike.

Screen Shot 2018-04-13 at 14.48.36.png

SEARCHING FOR THE SIGNAL

citiesRISE is a global platform that will mobilize collaboration, innovation, and investment in mental health. By engaging a global network of cities to pursue partnerships and initiatives at local, national, and international levels citiesRISE seeks to bring about systemic change in mental health and well-being.

 

EMERGENCE

Our research and strategic discussions culminated in a simple insight: mental health needs a re-brand.

This core insight informed the CitiesRISE branding and messaging,  shifting the focus to a sense of global connection, strength, and positivity. By highlighting the potential of mental health rather than dwelling on the burden of mental illness, we were able to re-frame the story.

IMPACT

CitiesRISE launched at Smart Cities NYC '17 with major global partners and will be launching in multiple cities around the world in coming months.

ARTIST INNOVATOR

STRATEGY    |    RESEARCH   

Great minds don't think alike.

The importance of innovation and creativity pervades every conversation about the future of business, government, and the social sector. Artists are starting software companies, launching B Corporations, and working on all the important social issues of our time: immigration, race, criminal justice reform, climate change, and more.


Emergence worked with Upstart Co-Lab to interview over 20 thought leaders and artist innovators ranging from scientists and CEOs to artists such as Yo-Yo Ma. We combined the insights from this work into a comprehensive report and op-ed.



SEARCHING FOR THE SIGNAL

There has been growing recognition that cognitive diversity—differences in perception, judgment, and thinking style—is essential to maximizing the efficiency and problem-solving capacity of teams. In parallel, leaders across all fields have signaled that creativity—original ideas that are effective and useful—is the single most important factor for success.

A survey of employers found that 97% believe creativity is of increasing importance, yet 85% have difficulty finding qualified applications when filling creative positions.

EMERGENCE

he report, “Great Minds Don’t Think Alike: Artists as innovators in business, government, and society”, defines artist innovators as artists who work outside the studio, the theater, and the concert hall to bring their distinctive talents and skills into business, government, and the social sector. The report includes insights from individual interviews with prominent artist innovators such as cellist Yo-Yo Ma and leaders from Mckinsey & Company, Red Bull, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

IMPACT

he report was picked up and covered in multiple media outlets, published in business and arts trade newsletters, and featured in a talk at Denver Startup Week. The next phase of the project will involve campaign development and broad public launch of advertising, thought leadership, and programmatic work

CHALLENGE

Take a grass roots arts movement to the next level. Bach in the Subways needed to raise funds, engage new audiences, and clarify their brand and story for the biggest Bach in the Subways Day ever...

EMERGENT IDEA

From the inspiration of a single cellist playing alone in the subways, a global movement is born to liberate Bach's music from concert halls and give it freely to the public once a year. We sharpened the appeal of the Bach in the Subways narrative, orchestrated and filmed a 300-person chorus flash mob in a New York subway station and amplified the Bach in the Subways brand through social media and video content.
