Tags from the story: Smiley, We Are All Original.

We Are All Original is the campaign created by the original Smiley brand, who have influenced global culture for over five decades.

Smiley is set to disrupt societal norms with their new campaign, “We Are All Original”. In a world that often glorifies success based on societal measures, this initiative celebrates individuality and authenticity, redefining what it means to be a trailblazer. Emphasising the value of self-expression, Smiley’s campaign highlights that everyone is unique, regardless of background or status.

“We Are All Original” is more than just a marketing campaign; it is a beacon of optimism, encouraging consumers and brands alike to redefine the concept of originality. By championing the power of authenticity, it creates a movement that inspires self-confidence, fosters unity, and challenges societal norms, ultimately leaving a lasting impact on our brand and the industry as a whole.

Kicking off the campaign is Smiley’s CEO Nicolas Loufrani;
