Imagination, makes great things come to lifeon Jul 30, 2010
All big things and the realization of dreams start with imagination. It never fails to awaken our passions in achieving our goals. It lives with every endeavor, however big or small. Brimming with energy, full of fresh ideas and outpouring with spirited courage, the youth of today is the epitome of a bright and promising future – a shared vision that Samsung wants to help realize.
With its “I Imagine” campaign, Samsung in partnership with Folded and Hung circled-in on the young generation’s passions, concerns and outlooks.

Talk, for shout-outs that express emotions, ideas, thoughts, dreams, hopes and ambitions; Play, for shout-outs that express how life is experienced through love of music, sports, fashion and the arts; and, Love, for shout-outs that express how bonds are formed with family and friends through shared interests and passions. They were also able to able to give their two thumbs up and vote for their favorite shout-outs.
Winners of the contest earned bragging rights as their shout-outs were printed in cool and hip Folded and Hung hoodies. On TALK, Isabella Martinez from University of Sto. Tomas (UST) won with her shout-out, “I imagine and I will make it happen.” On PLAY, Guillermo II Francisco also from University of Sto. Tomas (UST) won with his shout-out “I Imagine our generation united in one beat.” Lastly, on LOVE, Phili Jacinth Dayupay from Rizal Technology University bagged the prize with his shout-out “I Imagine total peace in 3, 2, 1”.
