Personalisation is one of the best ways to engage your audience with your direct marketing campaign, and one company’s innovative invites have a very personal touch. Denim brand Mustang invites VIPs to a special dinner in Berlin every year, but its 2014 ‘Epic Denim’ campaign is truly unique.
Made from old jeans, the direct mail piece formed a ten page book, with a story beautifully stitched into the fabric. The clever story revealed more about Mustang, including its heritage and more recent history, providing a colourful twist on a traditional invite.

The campaign, which Mustang called ‘The First Wearable Book’, has won awards, including a Bronze prize at Eurobest and a Wood Pencil at the D&AD Awards, showing that a considerate, personal touch can go a long way when it comes to direct mail.
