‘Experts in the Extraordinary’: Aligning Hiscox with the best art has to offer.


To endorse Hiscox by creating a new experience for their customers, focussing on ‘Experts in the Extraordinary’ with the Evening Standard Art Prize at the core. The partnership emphasised Hiscox’s aligned brand values, thus encouraging consideration for Hiscox Home Insurance within the identified ‘Gold and Platinum’ target audience.


Building upon the success of the inaugural Evening Standard Art Prize, by increasing the scale of the second year’s event, striving for more editorial coverage and increased entries. As a supplement to the main event, the partnership included creating an engaging content series that was published across both print and digital, simultaneously targeting a range of Hiscox’s passion points.
