Purpose: Our aim with this paper is to examine the communicative role WeActivists play in WeSC's external communication, and also to investigate what it means to be part of the activist concept as individuals. This will be done by presenting WeSC's key values and investigate whether these are portrayed by the representation of the activists in market campaigns and personal interviews.
Material/Method: We have conducted a qualititave study where we interviewed three WeActivists of various age and profession. Furthermore we did a semiotic analysis of 10 images from 7 advertising campaigns.
Main results: Our results indicate that WeActivists play a significant role in WeSC’s external communication, and thus signifying that they play a major part in creating WeSC's brand identity. The activists represent the company's key values simply by being themselves, in both the market campaigns and in their everyday life. That being said, one should not overlook the fact that the WeActivists remain a market strategy for attracting costumers, and also for standing out within the industry.
Keywords: WeActivist, WeSC, Social movement, Brand identity.
