Spacehopper stress ball with campaign booklet
Close Brothers Premium Finance campaign

Direct mail design and fulfilment: nostalgia for the pioneers of premium finance

Close Brothers Premium Finance were facing a turbulent time in the industry. But we knew their message of stability and heritage would be attractive to their audience of insurance brokers.


We developed a direct mail campaign focusing on this small database of new contacts.

Close Brothers have a strong track record, having launched the first premium finance product in 1977. We realised this was a great angle for a targeted campaign.


Using their 1977 visual style, we developed a timeline of the brand’s evolution to build confidence in the company. The direct mail piece even included a stress ball in the shape of the iconic space hopper.


The retro-themed campaign was really popular with the database of new business contacts.
