Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
Jung von Matt is always trying to headhunt the best creatives in the market. So our HR representatives are in a constant dialogue with the best creatives and talents of the leading German agencies. To finally win these prospects we wanted to remind them every day what a creative agency Jung von Matt is.

Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
The strengh of the calendar was to remind our candidates each and every day with a creative quitting letter how inspired working at Jung von Matt is. We came up with absurd reasons, made fun of the whole advertising industry and even did funny quitting art works using typical elements of a advertisers every day life.

Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
In order to remind our candidates of choice every day of Jung von Matt, we gave them a tear-off calendar with a ready-made quitting letter for each and every day of the year. It contained the date, a funnily written text for each day and a space for the signature. So the candidates just had to tear off the days quitting letter, sign it and pass it the their HR department to quit.

Describe the results in as much detail as possible with particular reference to the RESPONSE of the target audience including deliverability statistics, response rates, click throughs, sales cost per response, relationships built and overall return on investment.
The first quitting calendar in the world caused a buzz in the German advertising industry. We used it to encourage top creatives to interview with us. Our HR representatives used the calendar in numerous interviews as a special give away. It got an amazing reception and finally got 9 creatives to join Jung von Matt: 2 creative directors, one senior team and 5 junior creatives. But the year isnt over yet...
