Sharing his views on the role that would be essayed by the agency for brand Woodland, Vikas Mehta, Chief Marketing Officer, Lowe Lintas + Partners and Executive Director, LinTeractive said, “Woodland is one of the few Indian brands that have successfully built a strong lifestyle stature for itself, especially among youth. You can’t build a youth brand today without innovating on digital platforms and our agency is very excited to enter Woodland’s timeline. We believe the enormous experience of Karishma Lintas, coupled with LinTeractive’s domain expertise should create some compelling brand stories, on and offline.”

As part of the growth graph, Woodland currently has 300+ company owned exclusive Woodland stores across various cities in India that are growing at a healthy rate of 25 to 30 per cent.

The attempt is to provide services ranging from e-mailers to building experiential assets or manage paid and owned media specific to the defined roadmap lifestage requirement rather than a basket-of-services approach.”
