St George’s Little Dragon encourages Australians to ‘Go Paperless’

St George’s Little Dragon has promoted the bank’s new online home loan application tool by encouraging Australians to ‘Go Paperless’.

Created by Saatchi & Saatchi, features the Little Dragon blowing fire on mountains of paperwork first home buyer Liz has to deal with.

The campaign is rolling out across TV, social, digital, online and radio.

Kate Kissane, head of brand and advertising at St George, said in a statement: “The 2018 St.George Home Buying Survey suggests that Aussie home buyers, particularly first home buyers, are still optimistic about owning a home, but the actual application process is forcing them to throw it in the ‘too hard’ basket.

“48% of first home buyers say they’ve put off buying a home because of the complexities of the application process. So we’ve built an entirely new online application platform to combat these frustrations and put the power back in the buyers’ hands, by going paperless.”

Mike Spirkovski, chief creative officer at Saatchi & Saatchi, added: “The home buying process can be really complicated, so it’s great that St.George Bank has developed this tool to help people overcome one of the big obstacles.

“The paperless campaign is a fun extension to the well performing Little Dragon campaign, showing home buyers that there’s a way to avoid all those endless paper forms.”
