We made regulatory change management simple with a targeted direct marketing design that’s both persuasive and visually engaging.
As a global provider of financial data and software solutions, Thomson Reuters helps companies manage risk by simplifying and automating the process of managing regulatory change. To effectively communicate their offering, the client’s marketing team needed an innovative and versatile way to capture the attention of risk professionals, compliance personnel and general counsel.
From the beginning, we knew that our direct marketing solution would need to be durable, flexible and compelling. In addition to being used for targeted desk drops and exhibitions, the piece also needed to clearly and persuasively present complex product features, while giving readers a reason to hold on to the information.
We addressed the client’s brief by creating a unique direct marketing design that incorporated a double-sided 3D infographic. In our effort to balance visual intrigue and versatility, our design team researched, discussed and tested several layouts and print formats to produce the final piece.
The design cleverly folds out from a compact tabletop piece into a concertina piece that reveals key product features on one side, and helpful tips for successful change management on the other. The engaging format showcases the client’s in-depth understanding of the concerns faced by their target market, while also outlining how they can simplify the process of staying on top of the ever-changing regulatory environment.
The infographic layout effectively communicates large amounts of data clearly, while cut folds transform it into a playful 3D piece that draws the reader’s eye from one piece of key information to the next.
The novel and tactile nature of the direct marketing design also encourages the audience to interact with it again and again, inviting them to hold on to the piece as useful reference material.
- The piece ensures continuity with a previous 3D infographic design we produced for the client, but is distinct enough to generate renewed interest among the target audience and act as a standalone marketing piece.
- Creative use of the client’s secondary brand palette helps categorise the information on each side, immediately differentiating the different types of information.
- The asymmetric illustration style adds movement and helps structure content.
- By selecting matt laminate stock and incorporating a tab mechanism, we were able to increase durability of the direct marketing design – allowing materials to be unfolded and reused in a variety of locations.
