Our wins this year span an interesting range of advertisers, from the emerging first timers to creatively exciting categories such as fashion, travel, and technology. The icing, of course, is the huge Videocon engagement, a brand we have all grown up with.”
Chraneeta Mann, National Creative Director – Regional, Rediffusion Y&R added here, “We are absolutely delighted to be entrusted with this business. Handsets, Flat Panel Displays and Telecom businesses are all highly innovation-led categories. The pace is superfast and with every new launch, the category pushes new boundaries.
