Describe the brief from the client
Spectra Financial Services wanted a self-promotion idea.
The company wanted people to know they provide risk-free investment advice.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The financial investment market is a confusing one. People tend to believe in charlatans and invest in all the wrong places. As a result, they are duped in the end. Most of the consumers live with a feeling of false security after they invest their money, without proper knowledge.
The challenge was to break that feeling of false security.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
A piggy bank is a universal symbol of investment, or saving money. People drop coins in the piggy bank and feel secure. A special Piggy bank was developed with 2 holes, 1 on top and 1 in the rear. Through a specially designed channel, coins dropped in the piggy bank were immediately ejected through the second hole. A line near the rear hole read: Is your investment risk free?
This design was developed to challenge the feeling of security of consumers who are uninformed about proper investment advice.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The direct mailer generated phone inquiries and many significant investment plans.
