Kapil Mishra has been elevated to Creative Head at Contract’s Mumbai office. Mishra, who is currently Executive Creative Director – Projects, will now have the additional responsibility of overseeing all the creative work churned out of Mumbai as its Creative Head. In his new role, Mishra will work closely with Ashish Chakravarty, National Creative Director, Contract Advertising to ensure creative excellence for the agency’s Mumbai clients.
Commenting on Mishra’s elevation, Ashish Chakravarty said, “Kapil has really impressed us with his clarity of thought, his ability to work on multiple projects, his keen eye for good ideas, and his sheer tenacity to see things through. But what marked him out for a bigger role was the way he led people across departments, and levels of seniority, through some very tough, but ultimately successful projects.”
Mishra had joined Contract from Law & Kenneth in April this year. During his short tenure with Contract so far, he has been involved in Cadbury Halls, Celebrations, Eclairs, Star Plus Junior Master Chef, Asian Paints Aspira and many new business pitches.
Before joining Contract, he was with Ogilvy and Leo Burnett, where he worked on brands such as Asian Paints, Virgin Mobile, Complan, Sprite, Limca, Motorola, The Times of India, Cadbury Dairy Milk (‘Kuchh Meetha Ho Jaaye’) and the Heroes Project for AIDS Awareness, partnered by Richard Gere.
