Implementation
Joining the SAF is a big transition for anyone. If you’ve grown up in the suburbs the contrast is even greater. The aim was to awaken curiosity to this unknown reality by applying actual dirt on the envelope. We used the dirty envelope as a trigger and let the letter itself carry a story – a film of how the letter ended up at you doorstep. You got access to the film by a QR-code on the envelope. The story showed the journey of the letter through the totally different reality of the SAF to your reality in the suburbs.

Client Brief Or Objective
The Swedish Armed Forces has a big challenge in recruiting people with a different cultural background than native Swedish. The SAF formed a special preparatory course with the intention to let them try out the life as a soldier and the quite exceptional work environment that comes with it. As the target audience came from several different cultural backgrounds the starting point for the recruitment campaign was the only common denominator they had – a non-existent relationship with the SAF and their mission, and that the world of the SAF was a totally different reality from their own.

Outcome
No results of the campaign were measured because of its short campaign period and specific application process.

Execution
There is a desire within the target audience about breaking up and getting beyond the life and the environment they live in. By providing this preparatory course the SAF gives people the chance to gain valuable life experiences, no matter what career you choose later in life. By starting from the target audiences only common denominator and appeal to their curiosity we got their attention. By combining interactivity with traditional direct mail the letter managed to carry two stories, one about the preparatory course and one who revealed the totally different reality of the SAF.
