OnePlus: Just Take One Step After Another



As of May 2015, OnePlus has been established for one year. On this occasion, Han Han is invited to be the first brand spokesman. The challenge to this case is how to escape from traditional routines of endorsement to give full play of Han Han’s celebrity effect, so as to  establish a good brand identity of low-key OnePlus in public.



  1. Believing in #Rational Beauty#, so #Just Take One Step After Another#

We reconstruct the strategic direction of OnePlus to establish strategy basis for brand TVC and promotion campaign in peripheral terms, that is “Rational Beauty”.Based on this, we put forward the annual slogan: #Just Take One Step After Another”, so as to form differences from the brands, products and promotions of competitors.


  1. Going beyond of Han Han’s celebrity effect to focus on natural spirit

Product is the physical form of brand founder’s “natural spirit”. Only by inviting the most suitable spokesperson and spreading the correct idea can the brand connotation be perfectly agreed with, and the communicating effect be maximized. This is why “realistic, pragmatic, modest” Han Han is selected to advocate the “Rational Beauty”   of OnePlus.

OnePlus’s annual brand TVC #Just Take One Step After Another# is starred by Han Han. With the voice over created by him, the TVC tells the story of Han Han who grows from a teenager known by the public via writing phenomenon to a film director. He has changed himself by making steady progress, which perfectly agrees with the values and brand philosophy of OnePlus, i.e. the “Rational Beauty”. This case is neither filled with data or messages by just delivering a belief, which is “Only by advancing steadily can we change the reality”. This is also agreed by Han Han.
