Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Umeå universitet/Institutionen för kultur- och medievetenskaper

Sammanfattning: In the last couple of years, the amount of commercial messages in our society has increased steadily which in turn has made us humans very critical against all kinds of advertising. Brand researcher Douglas B. Holt even claims that this directly threatens brand's trustworthiness. As a backlash and result of this situation, a couple of companies has begun to change the way they communicate to the big audience through the TV or computer screen - so-called native advertising or narrativity. A Swedish company that has been specially noticed for its commercials is Telenor with its campaign “Telenorfamiljen” where we get to follow an ordinary family through life where different kinds of technical products are used to ease life.  The purpose of this essay is to take a closer look at how Telenor strategically have chosen to build up their commercial campaign by narrative perspectives with the help of semiotic tools. The material, consisting of three chosen commercials from the campaign, was analyzed with a combined narrative and semiotic method with a primary focus on the narrative.  The result did not only show an appliance of the narrative, but also how Telenor has taken advantage of the tools that the narrative offers. This has been done to credibly give the recipients a story that they can relate to. Furthermore, the narrative elements seem to have been selected with great care since each part is individually significant and influences the story as a whole if it was being replaced. Neither Telenors logotype, products and services were given much visual attention which in turn proves how Telenor wants to be seen as a brand that focuses on the individual and its everyday life rather than its own gain.
