‘Powerful, simple, clever and relevant’
This was how Direct Response magazine described an award-winning direct marketing campaign art-directed by Coralie Walker for the National Asthma Campaign (Asthma UK). The mailing was designed to raise awareness of a life-threatening condition and the original pack raised twice the target income with an engaging, cost-effective format using an intriguing involvement device, a straw. The mailing pack remains the charity's 'banker' pack over 20 years later, the original was a team effort between agency and client and it was Coralie who suggested including the straw as an involvement device to experience how it feels to live with asthma. Coralie artworked the original mailing which was hand-stamped in 1991.
The charity’s fundraiser said ‘this pack achieved considerable notoriety and was widely copied by other organisations trying to develop their own equivalent version’ read the full SOFII case study here.
A campaign planner at Pell & Bales handed out the involvement device at an industry event IWITOT 2014 and said 'I Wish I Had Thought Of That' watch the footage here. The premise continues as the #strawfie challenge.

‘Coralie understands both sides’
Coralie was able to respond very quickly to the brief of building a new website. Her creative input was invaluable because she understands the needs of both the author and the audience. Coralie had a thoughtful and considered approach to all the content and examples of work I put forward, which shows in the final design.
From the moment photomerchant.co.uk went live I was able to direct clients old and new to the site, the reaction and praise has been universally positive. As a digital marketing tool Coralie managed the seo allowing me and my services to be found quickly and it immediately generated work for ongoing contracts.
