NETEASE, Beijing / DIDI / 2016

Presentation Image






On every Monday, urban residents in China would face painful traffic jam, worrying about being late and crowded buses, so "unhappy" has long been the state of most white-collar workers on Monday. Complaining (venting) is the favorite way of these residents to release stress, from which born the culture of our comments (which has a history of 15 years). Sympathizing with users’ sore point, Orange Monday joined in residents’ complaining comments and let more consumers take part in it, so as to enhance the sense of reality instead of just watching a long plotted marketing campaign.
