Raising the creative bar. Lowering the bottom line.

Gearing up for annual report season, Getty Images wanted to address the fact that sales for Rights Managed (RM) imagery in the annual report/financial report category had dipped 17% over the previous year. Getty sought to increase revenue via existing clients and by gaining new accounts.

Music was a new offering for them, and since there was a trend for companies to share annual report information online, an additional goal for this campaign was to cross-sell film, music and photo assignments services. Getty planned to offer a discount to those who hadn’t purchased RM in the past to help offset their client’s budget cuts, which were prevalent at that time because of the 2008 economic crisis.

For this project, we presented two concepts: “Make it work” and “Stimulate possibility,” with ideas for how the concepts could unfold, featuring compelling Getty Images visuals. Ultimately, the client chose “Stimulate Possibility,” but both ideas were well-received.

The direct mail component consisted of attention-grabbing oversized postcards that featured an arresting image, the offer and a link to the microsite.
