Young Generation Wild n Free
Vietnamese children are dominated by standards of their parents, schools and society. They are taught they should know the must - have standards in the Vietnam society they have to accomplish, no matter if it's right or not, no matter if they like it or not, no matter if they love them or not; and how they show their love; sometimes they don't really understand what they need, they spend too much time wasting on working, studying with things they don't like, they always have to reach the goals according to the standards of the society.
The slogan wants to send them that they should be who they are, be free & wild; be themselves, be true with the love for people, friends and be active in every dance and daily activities.
SAADO's identity design is printed on Kraft paper and is inspired by environmental projects, showing the brand's personality and class.
