For the launch of Morepork, Spark has imagined what a life-size two story Emoji house would look like and built it in the foyer of their Auckland HQ.
Spark's GM of Smart Living, Gemma Croombs, says Morepork's designed to look after the things people love, their homes, their kids, the things they're emotional about, so an Emoji family are perfect to tell the story of how good it feels to have Morepork watching over them.
Featuring only sounds, music and Emoji, the Morepork films peek into the lives of the family (Mum, Dad, their little boy and his dog) living in Emojiville.
Until I got my Morepork, I had to turn the car around and go home to double check -- otherwise I'd spend all day feeling anxious about what could be happening.

We needed to follow that approach in how we show our customers what Morepork can do for them.
