Ray-Ban: Never Hide Campaign

Launched in 2007, Ray-Ban’s Never Hide brand platform has been a recurring campaign that promotes the eyewear maker’s independent, creative, and authentic voice.


Ray-Ban works with China key opinion leaders to amplify its Never Hide campaign

Over the years, Never Hide campaigns have placed an emphasis on musicians and artists, and this was the focus for a China initiative that combined eight different product materials with eight campaign ambassadors to connect with rising post-90s consumers.

Campaign Highlights

Ray-Ban’s Never Hide Your Talent initiative emphasized buzz generation on China social media to drive followers to engage with eight mini-campaigns to learn about the brand’s diverse product offerings through eight material themes ranging from steel to velvet. Ray-Ban also partnered with eight celebrities and digital influencers to amplify reach as well as provide an inspirational message, augmented by Weibo and WeChat mini-games that boosted brand sharing across social media.
