University of Aarhus

The world's smallest brochure

Agency: Grey

Description

Results and Effectiveness: The brochure immediatly became a collector's item at college and was a major subject on the students Facebook college groups. But most importantly, the University of Aarhus experienced a 67% increase of applications for the Molecular Biology and other nature science studies. Their most successful campaign ever.
Creative Execution: We created a brochure so small that it was only possible to read the text through a microscope. The brochure measured only 5 mm x 10 mm and the text was specially printed with an incredible point size of only 0.4. The brochure informing about the molecular studies at Aarhus University - was handed out to students at all major colleges.
Insights, Strategy and the Idea: For years The University of Aarhus had experienced a decline of students at the nature science studies. Our brief was to make more college students choose to study nature sciences after ending college. We specially designed a campaign for every study direction. For the study of Molecular Biology (the study of biology at a molecular level) we built our campaign around a basic insight that concerned all the students at Molecular Biology. Since they had always been interested in studying very small objects, they all owned a microscope at home or they frequently used the microscopes placed in the physics/chemistry room at college.

This professional campaign titled 'The world's smallest brochure' was published in Denmark in July, 2010. It was created for the brand: University of Aarhus, by ad agency: Grey. This Direct medium campaign is related to the Education industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted about 14 years ago.
