"More and more communication is being consumed through the increasing plethora of devices available at our fingertips, allowing a convergence of brandspeak, digital and interactive communication on what we call the 'personal screen' - our window to the way the world lives, buys, chats, works/networks and entertains itself today. The nuance of the mobile is very interactivity driven and weaving exceptional design and ease of interaction into the UI is essential today. We see a big opportunity in crafting content particularly for this space and hope to lead the way in creating mobile solutions that enhance the relevance and impact of mainline communication," says Chraneeta Mann.

She was the only Indian at the New York Festival’s Grand Jury 2015 in the branded entertainment category. She’s worked on iconic brands like Honda Cars & Motorcycles, Airtel, MTS, LG Electronics, Paras Dairy, Suzlon, Iffco Tokio, Daikin, Taj Hotels, Canon, PVR Cinemas, Tata Nano and Videocon. Her last assignment was with Rediffusion Y&R as National Creative Director. An innovation junkie in love with all things new and digital, Chraneeta also loves music and has trained with Jagjit Singh.

Nitin Suri has worked in the field of design for more than two decades. He’s worked on brands like Yamaha, PVR Cinemas, Reliance Communications, Taj Hotels and Hitachi. His work has won several national and internation accolades. His last assignment was with From Here on Communication as Creative Partner. From 2010-2011 to X – Nitin was National Creation Director at Dentsu Marcom. When Nitin isn’t working on cutting edge design he dons his travel photographer hat.

The Mob has already started work on a couple of large brands including some initial work with Yes Bank.A corporate identity project is also being done for Sandeep Goyal owned Tango Media. A team of 16 is already on board. "Yes, business is good. We should be signing on at least one larger client next week," adds Suri.

Our typical marketing budget is usually 10 per cent of the topline spend

There are some forces impacting the way our business works. The IT/ITeS sector has changed tremendously. Platforms like Twitter have made everyone journalists. Smartphones have made everyone a photographer. The trend that we are seeing is one of hyperdigitalization, which is causing the lines between product and services to blur.

The OOH sector is among the fastest growing, globally. Brands and marketers have realized its potential and impact and begun to craft medium-specific adverts. Self-regulation is not only necessary but also essential to growth of the sector. The industry needs to exercise a certain level of this self-restraint to prove its commitment to maintaining the best standards in advertising.
