CohnandJansen JWT and YouTube checked the pulse of Romanian media market

Events, Marketing

CohnandJansen JWT organized the event YouTube Pulse 10 years in Romania, that ran under the concept “Billion faces of YouTube”. Since the idea stage, the event aimed to get out of the pattern of corporate events from the Romanian market and to present the association opportunities between brands and content creators.


Following the evolution of the content on YouTube, CohnandJansen JWT team focused on the way the platform offers to the ordinary people and to the brands the opportunity to generate special and unique content, on any theme they want.


YouTube Pulse is an unique YouTube event, reuniting media specialists, brands and top vloggers of the moment and those setting the trends in Romanian media industry.


It was important to show the multitude of options a marketer has when associating its brand with the YouTube content. We had to bring forward both the impact, the reach of these videos, and their incredible variety

Head of Digital & Strategic Planner CohnandJansen JWT


The agency chose to focus on bringing into the spotlight of 7 relevant themes for YouTube: cooking, fashion, make-up, travel, “Did you know”, funny sketches and different things of interest for adolescents and young people. The themes were supported by Romanian known and appreciated vloggers: Jamilla, Laura Musuroae, Vsauce, 10lucruri and Bianca Adam aka Tequila.


The attention to details was extremely important in this case, as it aimed to reach a special and very digitally connected target. For each category, CohnandJansen JWT team created an unique installation and chose a certain space inside of it to project the content of that category, reason why the installations became unique totems where YouTube content unveiled.


In making the installations we involved a team of scenographers, plus technicians specialized in mapping projections on irregular shapes. The totem themselves were build as artistic objects specific to the the category we wanted to bring to life from YouTube’s universe
