Client Brief Or Objective
The Silver Talk Campaign seeks to find a new way of communication between the old and young generation; the silver generation* offers wisdom through a talk show and the young generation share their talents by creating artworks inspired by the talk. (*silver generation: A term commonly used in Korea which refers to the elderly)Is there any way to get more people to experience the Silver Talk Campaign?

1) Book in a Book: Implying that the sliver generation (the large brown book) embraces the young generation (the small pink book)2) Two Books Connected by a Navel String: A metaphor to show that the young generation receives nutrients from the silver generation3) An Art Show in a Book: Showing the creativity of the young artistsThe small book makes you feel like you are really at the art show. The ideas of each piece are made into a 3-dimensional experience (Pop-up).

-The Silver Talk art show was hosted for 17 days with 50,000 visitors and more than a million visited the website and gained new perspectives on the ‘silver generation’. Newspapers and TV programs subsequently dealt and raised the issue of the silver generation as storytellers. The campaign was extended to 4 months which initially planned for 2 months due to the active responses. On the Silver Talk Campaign website, the recommendation of the storytellers and the young volunteers are still posting their will to participate on the coming up events.The ‘invisible men’ are redefined as great storytellers.

Brief Explanation
