We hope to see some outstanding work from rmg david in the coming months. Their main role will be centered on creating a buzz around programming and positioning of the new channel.”

Attributing the win to several factors, Josy Paul, National Chairman and Creative Head, rmg david, commented, “When we went into the pitch we were a bit nervous wondering if Rajdeep would grill us like he does politicians. Thankfully, he and the team gave us the freedom to speak our minds. They gave us the space to be ourselves. It helped that we had an idea that gave us a lot of energy. Together, the effect was electric. It feels fantastic when you see clients clap and nod in agreement.”

The soul of the rmg david proposition lies in a surprising strategy, insightful creatives with a larger human cause. “We had all our bases covered.

The win is good news for the much-awarded Delhi branch of rmg david. “The Delhi office has always been the blue-eyed branch in the entire network.
