To kick off the month of July, we are excited to recap all the creative content we made and shared throughout the month of June in this issue of our newsletter. As always, we would like to thank our clients and business partners for their endless support and flexibility. We wish everyone a safe and happy Fourth of July.



In case you missed it on our socials, we are beyond excited to officially announce our partnership with IMPS The Smurfs & Lafig Belgium. We are working together to design and bring virtual goods within ZEPETO, Asia’s largest metaverse platform.

Bare Tree Media has worked with IMPS The Smurfs in the past to provide audiences with a variety of digital content, including but not limited to, branded mobile messaging applications, Snapchat AR experiences, Samsung Themes, watch faces, and a GIPHY channel. The initial launch includes Smurfs-themed 2D and 3D branded apparel and accessories. These items are available exclusively to ZEPETO’s global audience. More details announced at:


“This is such a ‘smurftastic’ opportunity to launch a popular branded IP, such as The Smurfs, into the metaverse with a leading metaverse partner such as ZEPETO. We are thrilled to offer ZEPETO’s global audience of 300 million users an opportunity to customize their avatars and metaverse experience with The Smurfs-branded digital goods collection…”
Robert Ferrari, president of Bare Tree Media


As part of a beta program, Twitter has offered the creation of branded likes to a select few advertisers, with the intention of allowing them to encourage their audiences to share and like branded hashtag campaigns because of their unique animations and designs. Branded likes are attached to any tweet that contains a brand-specific hashtag and are live for 24 hours on the platform. As a limited edition campaign to drive hashtag and tweet engagement, advertisers love branded likes and the awareness they bring their companies.

For the last year, Bare Tree Media has worked with Twitter ArtHouse to design custom branded likes for Twitter and their clients. We are excited that as of June 30th, branded likes will now be offered to a wider audience of advertisers on Twitter. Twitter has named us the exclusive design studio of branded likes for the North America, Europe, and Middle East regions.

To see all the branded likes we have made, check out our website portfolio.


Our team is constantly finding new ways to incorporate AR into our personal branding efforts. Our AR designer, Wayne, used Snapchat’s new Lens Studio capabilities to create a BTM Bitmoji. By turning into an animated 3D-version of themselves, users can show off their love for Bare Tree!

Want a fun and innovative way to promote your brand? Our team would love to create one for you. Contact our team here and let’s make things happen.





Cactus boi pride month


Bare Tree Media is a proud ally of LGBTQIA+ communities, and we wanted to express our love for others through a series of Cactus Boi GIFs. Pride Month is all about spreading love, awareness, and acceptance to all!


On June 19th, 1865, the last enslaved African-American people were emancipated in the United States. Juneteenth provides us with an opportunity to reflect on our country’s history and the injustices Black communities have had to and continue to overcome.


1 month down, two more to go! We are looking forward to some more summer fun. Our newest designer, Rudy, created this First Day of Summer sticker and incorporated a familiar BTM face—Pistachio! (We hope Stroob is having just as much fun!) Visit our GIPHY page for this First Day of Summer GIF and for more Pistachio and Stoob content.


First day of summer


We would like to wish a Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! You guys are the GOAT(s)! For more Father’s Day stickers, search “btmparents” on GIPHY or click here!



Bleed Green or The Dubs? Our AR designer, Wayne, created Celtics and Warriors “Final Spinner” Lenses for Snapchat and TikTok. Users were able to embrace their inner Tatum & Curry and support their favorite team during the NBA Finals. The Celtics and Warriors lenses had over 794,000 views and 630,000 views respectively on Snapchat.

As a Boston-based studio, we may be a little biased, but we would like to offer up a congratulations to both teams on all their hard work and effort throughout the season. The 2022 NBA season has ended but show your support to two all-star teams next season by scanning the snapcodes or by following us on TikTok!

What better way to welcome Summer than with an AR experience? Pool float, palm tree, and ocean designs transport users to a place of tropical paradise and challenge them to put their beach ball volleyball skills to the test.

Using full-body tracking collision detection and real-time physics simulations, users can hit a beach ball into the air. The lens also has multi-user capabilities, meaning you can play with your friends in the same frame. Try our Summer Beach Party Lens by clicking here or by scanning the snapcode!



We are so excited to present Hotel Hideaway users with an opportunity to celebrate Pride Month in style.
