Never Expire

 105 Add to collection
Trace Mobile was launching as a new mobile network in South Africa. A network that is specifically for youth, and offers them access to exclusive content, events, and product benefits. We commissioned photographers around South Africa to go to the bars, pubs, protests, concerts, skateparks, and areas where young people feel free to be themselves. They took photos of everything that formed part of the youth’s identity. From the hundreds of images we selected the ones that were the most expressive, rebellious, irreverent, or just cool AF to create a TVC that is authentically youthful. This positioned Trace Mobile as a brand that’s not trying to adopt youth behaviour, but one that is part of youth culture with a simple rallying cry - long live the young.
