This direct mail campaign pack has an important message; designed to appeal to 16 year olds, it seeks to convince them that their opinions do matter and, explains how they can really can make a difference.
The client provided a very open brief with fantastic creative freedom, enabling me to create impactful headlines and accompanying graphics, with a powerful hook that would appeal to and engage with this demographic.
The pack features:
The campaign message Think Again not only challenges any preconceptions young people may have about their opinions not counting, it asks them to rethink if they’re considering leaving the survey. They will also be asked them to think carefully about their opinions and values when completing the survey, so Think Again is also relevant to this process of reflection.
The graphics are free and loose and signify individuality, freedom of speech and the value of individual ideas. While the campaign slogan is depicted in large, heavy type to immediately get the point across, the smaller hand-rendered fonts add a lighter tone and a sense of down-to-earth approachability and non-conformity, to appeal to this young demographic.
Each piece in the pack features a hand rendered graphic stamp on the cover, that re-enforces the message about the participant’s opinions counting and how they really can make a difference. The central ‘16+’ also suggests the young person is now eligible to join what was before out-of-bounds – so adding a note of exclusivity.
The wallet was created as a bespoke piece to contain all of the information within, so the cutter was drawn from scratch – all from recyclable card with no plastic fastenings.
