Creative agency Manifold used Twitter and Instagram to create a movement to inspire and empower individuals
in their daily lives as part of Levi's global Go Forth marketing campaign. From August to November 2012, Manifold identified social media influencers and also selected popular people in music and fashion, such as rap group Theophilus London, to feature in the campaign.

The agency then sent these people messages and gifts, such as Levi's jeans and grants of $501 toward their work. In all, it targeted more than 150 influencers and received thousands of impressions through Twitter activity.

Levi's also encouraged the public to join the movement by submitting photos that they interpreted to mean “go forth.” The best images featuring the GoForth and PostMe hashtags appeared on a billboard in Times Square throughout October.
