Wooing the white van man


Van drivers. Do they have opinions about vans? Does a decorator’s radio have the odd paint spot? You can bet they’d have something to say about Ford’s new Transit. A 3-day test drive would give them time to come up with a few honest observations – and then note them down on a business-like clipboard that was mailed to artisans up and down the country. (more…)

Not your usual bank mailer


The banks are shut at Easter. Blood banks are no exception. This card, mailed to existing donors, is an urgent request to get along and donate before the closed period, to ensure supplies are maintained, as some vital blood products have a shelf life of just 3 days. (more…)

Gosh. This helped to save lives.


Great Ormond St Hospital (GOSH) needed to raise enough cash to re-equip two ageing operating theatres with state-of-the-art operating tables, video equipment and air conditioning.

Defrost for 24 hours


Sweden lies partly within the Arctic Circle, so you’d imagine they would know a thing or two about making an all-weather convertible. This pack, mailed in a frosted plastic envelope, proved the point and contained an invitation to take a 24-hour test drive.
