An army of 400 action figures – the most epic promotional piece ever made?
Photographer Jens Lennartsson and a team of other creatives produced this awesome promotional mailer.
Jens Lennartsson, a photographer from Sweden, has created this truly amazing self-promotional piece. It's an army of 400 action figure versions of Jens that were sent out to agencies, magazines and generally people who were producing great work.
Knowing that, if he wanted to catch the eye of an art director or art buyer, he needed something more than just a standard portfolio is what drove Jens to create this wonderful set of figures. So employing a team of creatives and a manufacturer, they set out to make something that would instantly bring Jens Lennartsson Photography to the attention of it's recipients, that people would want to keep on their desk and want to share with others. The result was GI Jens.
