      Unveiled globally as a pivotal step in LG’s brand reinvention, the ‘Life’s Good with Optimism’ campaign is a vibrant celebration of a rejuvenated brand persona. Presenting a more dynamic and youthful brand identity, it encourages customers to approach life with optimism amid global uncertainty. LG has passionately aspired to share the revitalised brand philosophy and personify the essence of Life’s Good, while empowering people to find positivity in their everyday lives.
      Following the
      link hidden, please login to view, LG Australia celebrated the campaign with a series of media activities and a celebration with employees at its new Australian offices in Parramatta, Sydney. The company showcased how the recognisable Life’s Good slogan, first coined in Australia in 1999 as a reflection of the Aussie zest for life, inspires the next generation to embrace life with bravery.
      LG collaborated with campaign ambassador and renowned musician turned athlete , whose journey embodies the characteristics of brave optimism, overcoming challenges and defying expectations. Ahead of the celebrations, Cody Simpson spoke with Channel 7 Sunrise and News Corporation about the campaign and his story of being an ambassador and approaching life with positivity, in a bid to carve his own path. Sunrise ran a week-long LG product giveaway with the LG StanbyME, LG TONE earbuds and LG gram – innovations that align with the wants and needs of young Australians.

      Prior to his interview, Cody participated in an inspiring panel discussion at the Life’s Good with Optimism celebratory, hosted at LG’s new Australian office. Livestreamed from his training pool on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, Cody was joined by author and artist Emma Carey and LG Australia Marketing Director, Gemma Lemieux, for a discussion about optimism and positivity, facilitated by Australian media personality and Sunrise consumer correspondent Shaun White.

      Discussing what is behind the campaign in Australia with Gemma Lemieux, Cody and Emma shared pivotal moments where embracing optimism set them on a path to lead better lives. Media, influencers and LG Australia employees around the country listened to the panel both in person and virtually, where Cody shared more about his late-in-life career change, while Emma talked about her journey of learning to walk again after falling 14,000 feet (about half the height of Mount Everest) in a skydiving accident.
      Meanwhile, a Life’s Good reporter circled the local Parramatta area and the LG office interviewing consumers and employees on camera to better understand and uncover what locally are the sources of happiness and optimism for the future.

      The Life’s Good with Optimism campaign was not complete without celebrating LG Australia’s employees. Upon arrival to the office, each staff member was greeted with a heart-shaped cookie and at their desk, a red candy apple awaited featuring an optimism affirmation and a red heart-shaped balloon.

      In a bid to reiterate the brand-love employees have for LG, they were invited to complete the ‘Optimism Tour’, taking part in a series of activities for their chance to win prizes. From playing giant jenga and shooting a hole-in-one at mini putt-putt to capturing a photo for the ‘Life’s Good Mosaic Mural’ and taking on a colleague in a game of ping-pong, employees had the chance to let their hair down and truly experience Life’s Good.

      LG’s Life’s Good with Optimism campaign activation reflected the company’s commitment to positivity, inspiring individuals in Australia and around the world, and creating meaningful influence in challenging times.

      “Optimism is a hard thing to choose. But once you do, you’ll see why Life’s Good.”

      Last month, LG released its new brand film titled
      link hidden, please login to view,” capturing the essence of the company’s Life’s Good brand promise. The film aims to inspire customers, especially global youth to face bold challenges with an optimistic attitude toward life, particularly during difficult times like these. Life is full of trials and tribulations, and as a result, many have lost their innate optimistic view on the world. But, if we have courage, we can reconnect to that optimism and change our perspective. With the brand film, LG aims to encourage people around the world to approach any challenge they face with an optimistic perspective and mindset, and seize life’s opportunities.

      At the start of the 90-second film, the protagonist has a look of apprehension and a lack of confidence as he challenges himself to ride a longboard. However, as the film progresses, he gains his composure, gradually learning how to balance and finally gliding gracefully with a big smile on his face, driven by the optimism within him. Filmed in one take without any screen cuts, the character’s raw emotions are on display, complimented by the warmth of soft, golden hues and soothing background music.

      Directed by Emmy-Award winning Nicolai Fuglsig, the brand film is narrated by a young boy who represents the inner optimistic voice within all of us. This narration could symbolize the protagonist’s inner child, filled with optimism, or the innate optimism that everyone carries inside. Throughout the film, the voice strengthens the main character to overcome his fear, allowing him to truly enjoy the moment to the fullest.
      The film is a love letter to all those who dare to awaken the optimist in their hearts and encourages viewers to dream beyond their limitations. The heroes who allow themselves to be brave, according to Fuglsig, “venture out of their comfort zone, using optimism to overcome challenges, big or small.”

      The brand film resonated deeply with global audiences, quickly going viral and garnering overwhelmingly positive feedback across LG’s official social media platforms. Notably on LG’s YouTube global channel alone, the film garnered more than 36 million views in just three weeks.  One viewer from Instagram commented, “It was inspiring to see how someone’s anxiety of trying something new changed into full enjoyment by making a bold decision.” Another viewer stated, “the film helped me reflect because I myself have run into setbacks and was scared to take on challenges, but I was reminded that I can do anything I set my mind to with courage and hope.”

      LG has been operating its Life’s Good campaign globally since August with a philosophy to inspire people to face challenges with an optimistic approach even when life has so many setbacks, changes and reasons to doubt. The company has been actively promoting its brand values with a new visual identity on major landmarks and outdoor billboards to present LG as a young and dynamic brand.
      Seeing the world with optimism is what Life’s Good is all about, and LG will continue alongside consumers every step of their brave journey.

      Since 2011, LG has been running the LG Hope Screen program under its ESG direction of Better Life for All, raising public awareness of serious social and environmental issues. Public service videos produced by international organizations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) were able to catch the eyes of many by being displayed on LG’s billboards in the high-traffic pedestrian areas in two of the world’s most popular cities – New York’s iconic Times Square and London’s Piccadilly Circus.

      In celebration of World Food Day (October 16), LG once again aired a campaign video  on its outdoor billboards between October 9-22. World Food Day is celebrated annually to honor the founding of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), a specialized agency to raise public awareness regarding global food shortages and efforts to address them.

      The campaign video was produced by FAO under the theme, “Water is life. Water is food. Leave no one behind,” inspiring people to work together to end hunger. It aims to remind viewers of the value of water, an essential element for life and food, and to encourage people to put more thought and effort into water usage and conservation for a more sustainable future.

      Previously, through the LG Hope Screen program, the company actively showed its support for the UNEP and World Environment Day by playing

As a global corporate citizen, LG actively took part in campaigns to solve global social and environmental issues, including world hunger. LG India partnered with the Akshaya Patra Foundation to provide lunch to around 33,000 students in 11 states across the country since last year. Meanwhile, to donate 120 refrigerator-freezers for food storage to 60 campuses in the United States, offering meals to 500,000 college students suffering from malnutrition.
      In line with its ESG vision of Better Life for All, LG will continuously operate the LG Hope Screen program to raise awareness in public interest campaigns at a global level.
