Qantas Health Insurance has launched a new brand campaign via creative agency, SLIK.
Switching season is upon us, which means lots of different health insurers competing for attention.
With many campaigns typically taking the ‘happy families’ route, Qantas Health Insurance wanted to stand out by doing something different and unexpected for an insurance company.
With a draft script in hand, creative agency SLIK stepped in to develop a whole new visual approach for the brand.
The selling points of health insurance can get a bit dry. So, SLIK created a fun, stop-motion world where tiny characters bring big benefits to life in a light-hearted and charming way.
From hiking across calendars to sliding down stethoscopes, the characters introduced benefits like waived waiting periods, bonus Qantas Points and being backed by nib.
The campaign launched with a 30” spot for Video on Demand and YouTube pre-roll placements.
SLIK teamed with Photoplay Films x Playtime to create over 140 miniature figurines for the campaign. More than 1,400 frames were meticulously shot and retouched, showing just how much effort goes into stop-motion.
Alex Schieder, SLIK Creative Director, said, “our approach for this campaign took the Qantas brand in a new and exciting direction, and we’re really pleased with how it turned out. It sets a new tone for the insurance portfolio.”
The campaign has so far rolled out over VOD, YouTube, social media, radio, print and digital display.
