In pursuit of progressive discussion

Social creative campaign spotlights gender equality, mental health

Inspired by deep conversations that spark progressive thought, elicit humor and laughter, and inspire positive change, San Mig Light teams up with a local retail brand to launch a social creative campaign featuring 20 artists. 

LET’S TALK. San Mig Light teams up with PURVYR to launch a social creative campaign featuring merchandise designed by 20 artists. Each design aims to ignite progressive discussions on social topics such as gender equality, among others.
The campaign, dubbed “20 Light Years,” marks the 20th anniversary celebration of San Mig Light in the Philippine market. The light beer brand tapped local retail brand PURVEYR to create a collaborative campaign that aims to inspire Filipinos to engage in important social conversations more.

The retail collection consists of 20 different designs by Filipino artists and designers. The collection includes five types of merchandise—t-shirts, tote bags, scarves, beer mugs, and coasters—with designs inspired by four social topics “that deserve a spotlight right now.”

The topics on spotlight are gender equality, arts and creativity, community development, and mental health. Each social topic has a merchandise set of five different designs, as each artist was assigned to one social topic and one type of merchandise.
