Background: Beeline, one of the biggest Russian telecom companies, feels responsible for the fact that teens spend hours with smartphones wasting time on meaningless entertainment and have virtually lost interest in reading.Using a theme they’re really into, we tried to reignite their passion for books.
Idea: To bring back youngsters’ attention to books we decided to use what they are really interested in. Rap, the most popular music genre in Russia, has been connected to literature from the outset. By unwrapping the links between rap and books Beeline aims to reignite passion for reading.
