Brief Explanation

We needed to design something that would cut through all the brochures, flyers and giveaways people constantly receive. Something that would be unique and useful and that people could take on their adventures.

The Brief

Land Rover wanted to give their existing and prospective customers something that they could keep with them at all times. Something that would be useful in the wild and promote the classic adventurous spirit of Land Rover owners.

How the final design was conceived

Whilst a Land Rover can take on any obstacle it faces, once their drivers step out of their vehicles, they are on their own. So we designed a Personal Extinction Prevention Book as a giveaway to all Land Rover owners. We researched every dangerous creature and the effects of natural oils, scents, and everyday ingredients on them. The book not only gives tips to survive against dangerous animals, but it also actively protects its owner. Each page is a resealable packet that contains wet wipes coated with natural oils or an everyday ingredient that will repel or neutralize dangerous creatures.

Indication of how successful the outcome was in the market

The book was sent to 3,000 existing customers, and the initial response was very positive. Land Rover showrooms were filled with requests for copies of this new adventure must-have. And after reading the book, over 170 Land Rover drivers even reached out to tell us their tips to repel dangerous animals. The client was so happy with the concept that the book is now going to be given away as a supplement to the cars’ manual with every new Land Rover sold.
