Its work reflects this too. It’s always been simple, yet smart and witty. Perhaps the reason why the communication they created is still remembered.”

“I am really looking forward to working with Thomas and the team. To continue that journey, take it to the next level. It’s going to one long, creatively vibrant marathon for sure,” she added.

Sameera comes with 12 years in the business and has worked on brands such as Arrow, Reliance Jewels, the USL portfolio, Amante, Mantri Square. Prior to Rediffusion-Y&R, she was with McCann Erickson, Bangalore where she worked on TVS Scooty, Scooty Pep, Kwality Walls and JTI. The other categories she has worked on include real estate, personal grooming, information technology and financial services.

Anish Daryani, Vice President and Branch Head, Orchard Bangalore said, “Sameera brings in the solidity we needed to strengthen our creative firepower. As a great thinker, expressive writer and exemplary leader, she’s everything one would expect from a creative head. This is also in line with our strategic call to provide better creative output for our brands. I’m confident our clients will be benefactors of her creative abilities.”
