Artists Bring Special Customer Experiences to Samsung.com
Haydonna, an artist well known for her dynamic graphics and cheerful style, participated in the design of the Galaxy Z Fold5 case, incorporating her signature ‘Fluffy Friends’ characters. Yeseul O, who creates original art using 3D, augmented reality (AR), and metaverse elements, and Lee Eun, known for her delightful paintings using vibrant colours, each collaborated with Samsung on a Galaxy Z Flip5 case. Yeseul O expresses the value of life’s small pleasures through her distinctive character called ‘Metabun_ny,’ while artist Lee Eun incorporates messages of encouragement for people into her designs.
As for the Galaxy Z Flip5, Yeseul O and Lee Eun’s art of works are recreated as animated designs using near field communication (NFC) technology, providing customers with a unique and immersive experience. Once users insert ‘Flipsuit card’ with NFC technology in the case, the image of the card is implemented as an animation on the ‘Flex Window’ of the Flip5’s external screen.
Samsung’s collaborations with these three artists in the design of the Galaxy Z accessories, aligns with the emerging concept of “Wholesomeness.” Wholesomeness aims to spread positive influence through messages of positivity, kindness, empathy and inclusiveness — in contrast to negativity, criticism and confrontation.
“We strive to provide a rich and differentiated experience for customers using Samsung.com,” said Evelyn Kim, Executive Vice President of the D2C Center at Samsung Electronics. “In addition to collaborating with emerging artists on the new foldable products, we will continue to expand collaborations with brands and experts in various fields to create synergy across our product lineup, including TVs and home appliances.”
