Steve yu journey_portfolio

I left my post as ECD of Saatchi & Saatchi X in Asia in June 2013 after working for the company for 4 years. My experience ranged from shopper marketing, retail design that is integrated within a holistic 360 offering to clients such as Lenovo and P&G.

Feeling that I needed more real life experience in the realm of digital shopper marketing. I set off on my own in creating an online social/shopping experience through a platform that I created around crowdsourcing and e-commerce.

In the past year, I have amassed a great deal of experience in designing, marketing and producing products through this platform called Avid Union. During this time, I have built a sustainable business on this platform of social ecommerce.

With this business experience and along with my 15 years of shopper marketing agency experience in New York, Singapore and China, I believe I can be valuable for a company who is looking for a creative leader that is going to take creativity to the next level.

  1. 1. Steven Yu • A story of design through two worlds
  2. 2. I was born in Asia, immigrated to the United States at eight years of age. I was blessed by a distinct awareness of both culture and art from these two sides of the world. https://www.behance.net/syu8
  3. 3. A background of fine art and architecture, I have a clear understanding of the relationship between 2D and 3D expression. https://www.linkedin.com/in/stevenyu8
  4. 4. It’s from this foundation in which I have developed my career, I have been creating products, environments, retail spaces that are woven into integrated marketing communications. This began with global agencies from around the globe servicing the biggest brands. https://www.linkedin.com/in/stevenyu8
  5. 5. Looking into the future of my work, I set off to create a brand of my own. Learning from the ground up, I designed, prototyped, produced, and fulfilled a small boutique technolgy-driven fashion company. By using new innovative digital channels such as Kickstarter, I was able to connect organically to my audience, raising over $139,000 in just one year.

  6. 6. Again, I find myself in between two worlds. The products and how it’s brought to life. By using a new platform through crowdfunding, I was able to connect organically to my audience through my own boutique brand. Now, I feel compelled to share my newly formed ideas and experiences with the rest of the creative community. The following pages are some examples of my work.
  7. 7. Brief: Avid Union, a new shopping platform Avid Union is a brand that launches its products on the popular crowdsourcing site, Kickstarter. Leveraging on this new way to reach a brand new community of backers and creators, Avid Union builds real conversations and connections through it’s digital and social media at an organic level to create brand loyalty like no other. Insight The next generation of buyers with their ever evolving shopping behavior and the concept of shopping has shifted from owning stuff to buying into new ideas! Idea By designing original and innovative products from the ground up, we will be able to reach key opinion leaders in our category of technology and fashion.
  8. 8. Why Avid Union? steven yu • Avid Union THROUGH CROWDFUNDING, AVID UNION HAS RAISED OVER $139,000 IN 1 YEAR.

  11. 11. Brief: Lenovo 3.0 After years of educating the global market that Lenovo is indeed a global brand after their purchase of IBM’s laptop business, Lenovo launches their global communications strategy 3.0. Our task is to bring this to life in the developing regions. Not only are we to comply with global guidelines, but to enhance it in a way that is relevant and exciting to its markets. Insight With current PC brands that are unrealistically aspirational due to the advancing Apple market. Lenovo sets out to differentiate itself by being purposeful and real.

The following are works that shows holistic through-the-line creatives and strategic guidelines that my team also created, to help the markets bring these works to life in their respective countries.

  20. 20. Brief: Co Branding innovation Sinopec is one of china’s top petroleum company, and has opened a series of convenience stores which are attached to their fueling stations. Seeing this great business potential, coke has established an initial relationship for a chance to brand these stores using the principles of shopper marketing. Insight Drivers in China doesn’t really have the habit to purchase drinks while re-fuelling at the petrol station.

  26. 26. Brief: The holistic campaign The work done for Walmart can be traced by how a person would experience shopping within a hyperamrket from point A to Z by incorporating anything form print to event, in-store and digital. In this campaign my team was given an opportunity not only to form this experience, but also creating a new retail space that transforms how shoppers shop in Walmart stores in greater China. Insight The personal care category of WM in Greater China doesn’t have the vibrancy and personality like other retailers such as Watsons. Idea Inspired by serialized dramas so popular in China, the long aged debate of who is in the right in a romantic relationship is placed centered stage in this campaign, aptly named “He Said, She said”.

Creating an ice cream rock festival inspired by the iconic event such as Woodstock, and with word of mouth generating mostly from Facebook, the event was filled with characters such as hippies, painters, and even fortune tellers.
