India wins 2 medals at 2015 Jay Chiat

Both by Mullen Lowe Lintas Group, for Havells and Idea Cellular

India made its mark at the much celebrated and pursued global platform for strategic excellence – 4A’s Jay Chiat Awards. Two awards were won by India and Mullen Lowe Lintas Group picked up both, at an event in Chicago yesterday.

This is also the first time, that work from two Indian companies, Havells and Idea Cellular, has won at this award show. In its 19th year, 4A’s Jay Chiat Awards recognize and celebrate brilliant strategic thinking in Marketing, Media & Advertising. The key criteria for winning an award include a great strategic idea; a powerful creative manifestation of the idea; and a clear link between the two.

Noteworthy winners this year include Droga5 that won a Grand Prix for ‘Under Armour – I Will What I Want’, while Gold winners include TBWA Media Arts Lab for its work on ‘Apple iPhone 6, World Gallery’, Publicis NY that won the Gold for ‘Doctors of the World, More Than a Costume’ and Sancho BBDO/Direktor Films that won the Gold for ‘Pepsi, Dew Bottle Tool.’

India’s wins this year came under the category of ‘National Brand Building’ for ‘Idea Cellular – No Ullu Banaoing’ that won a Silver and ‘Havells – Respect for Women’ that won a Bronze. A total of 35 entries were shortlisted at the 4A’s Jay Chiat Awards 2015 across the six categories of Global Campaign, Media, National, Non-profit, Product Service / Creation and Regional.

Commenting on the Group’s performance, Joseph George, Group CEO, Mullen Lowe Lintas Group said, “Jay Chiat is globally acknowledged as possibly the toughest strategy award to win. We are delighted to have won it four times in two years now, something very few agencies in the world can boast of. As an agency group, we continue to obsess over clients’ ROI and wins like this go a long way in further strengthening our belief in this obsession.”

This double win makes it two years in a row, for the country and the Group. Mullen Lowe Lintas Group (formerly called Lowe Lintas + Partners) last year had won a Silver and a Bronze award for Unilever brands - Kissan and Kan Khajura Tesan. It was then, the first time that an Indian agency had a double-win.

S Subramanyeswar, National Planning Director, Lowe Lintas adds, “We are grateful to the faith that clients put behind our strategies and the resultant creative solutions. The wins at a platform like Jay Chiat is a great reward for the culture of sharp strategic thinking and result oriented creativity we pursue at the agency. With some of the best campaigns that were in contention, we’re glad to have emerged winners for our entries on Havells and Idea Cellular.”

These wins add to Mullen Lowe Lintas Group’s continued great run on effectiveness. In the last few months, the agency has

- Ranked #1 agency in the world by WARC 100

- APAC Agency of the year at AMEs and Tambuli

- Named most effective agency in India by the global Effie Index

- Won India’s only Grand Prix in ‘creative effectiveness’ at Spikes Asia

Kris Mediaworks (KMW), a full-service media planning and buying agency, has won the media mandate for Peachmode.com, an online portal for women’s fashion, after a multi-agency pitch. The account is pegged to be 15crore.

KMW will handle 360 degree media services for Peachmode.com, from Mumbai office.

Commenting on the tie-up, Peachmode.com owner Mr. Anupam Tulsyan said, “As we embark on this new journey, we need to reach out to new consumers across India. And we have great faith in KMW, to help us achieve our objective.”

Mr.Krishna Suvarna, Founder and Director of KMW, comments on the win “I am thrilled that Peachmode.com has found KMW to be worthy of handling their media duties. We are extremely delighted to be associated to Peachmode.com. With our strong experience of handling online portals, we are confident of taking the brand to greater heights.”

Ferrero Rocher unveils its new brand identity

Ferrero India, part of the Ferrero Group, which is the 3rd biggest chocolate producer in the world, has launched a new brand identity, brand descriptor and packaging for its premium chocolate brand Ferrero Rocher.

The visual identity, including logo design and packaging, aims to give a more up to date and appealing image to the brand.  The brand identity is a modern design that rejuvenates the brand giving an elegant look and feel that conveys gift ability on special occasion.

The new brand descriptor “the golden experience” of Ferrero Rocher is a unique taste experience that engages all the senses to an enhanced brand experience that engages with the consumer by inviting him to take time to savour and share more of life’s golden pleasure together.

The new packaging has a QR Code that allows consumers to learn more about the quality ingredients and the care that goes in making each Ferrero Rocher praline.

Mr. Emanuele Fiordalisi, Vice President, Marketing, Ferrero India said, “Over the years, Ferrero Rocher has been an integral part of consumer special occasion. The new look is an expression to enhance consumer experience and add a sparkling touch in their special moments.”

Ferrero Rocher, created in 1982, has become a favourite boxed chocolate for millions of people around the world. In fact today, it is the world leader in the box chocolate category and is sold in more than 130 countries across 5 continents.

Ferrero Rocher’s transparent box revolutionized the boxed chocolate market because the transparency enhanced the precious gold appearance of the single pralines and today it is an integral part of the brand identity.

Ferrero Rocher has an interesting history behind making it a precious gift for your loved ones: driven by the desire to make all the pleasure & enjoyment of a sophisticated chocolate, the Italian chocolatier Ferrero created Ferrero Rocher that offers a unique multi-layered taste experience - a creamy filling, a crispy wafer and a delicious crunchy whole hazelnut centre – individually wrapped in its unmistakable golden foil.
