Pass the Pocky
The product “Pocky” is a sweet biscuit snack, originating in Japan from the Glico Corporation. The first pocky started as a thin biscuit covered in a light layer of chocolate. Since the snack’s development in 1966, the Pocky name has transported itself across the globe and can now be found in many grocery stores in the U.S.
This project did not require students to necessarily create an entirely new brand image, but to build upon existing brand elements. I already loved the bubbly (kawaii) graphic content, and the brand’s familiar tagline “Share Happiness” became an inspirational starting point, spearheading my campaign's message.
Pocky would promote a guerrilla marketing pop-up event on social media, encouraging followers to find the pop-up locations in their city and share their experience with the “Show us how you #sharehappiness” tag.
The pop-up storefronts could also feature limited-exclusive merchandise sold only at those locations, opening up the opportunity to capture the collector consumer audience.
Embracing the more fun/eccentric image appeals to a specific niche, helps distinguish Pocky from competitors by establishing its unique charm.

I wanted to cover a specific type of relationship people share with one another for this magazine ad — romance.
There is a Japanese party game where two people are challenged to gnaw at each end of the same pocky stick, reaching as close as possible until the two meet without kissing.

Pop-up Pocky Delivery Shop
For the guerrilla marketing component, I wanted to implement a fun way for people to realistically “Share Happiness” with people they care about.
There could be prize incentives for users who share the #ShareHappiness hashtag or the revenue goes towards charitable donations as a more philanthropic approach.
The pop-up pocky store fronts + mobile vendors would be stationed around a city encouraging people to participate in the "Give A Pocky, Get A Pocky" event. (Limited-exclusive merchandise would also be sold)
Customers can purchase Pocky packs to be sent with a heartfelt message to anyone they want.
People also have the choice of sending a Pocky gift to a random person — encouraging the spread of happiness to everyone.
