WHAT WE LOVE
In a cold, negative, dry, price-driven market, we saw the opportunity to inject some positive emotion into the communications. Teamed with a senior copywriter we thought ... wouldn’t it be nice to talk or show the things 'we love' rather than shout out insurance facts like all the competitors did? We came up with a fantasy / reality world and script ‘Look after what you love in Life’. To enhance the new corporate identity and make it more personal. I then created 'The Green Heart' to be the visual icon of the LV= brand.
