Banerjee said, “This has been the year of independent agencies. Agencies like Happiness, Anomaly and Crispin Porter and Bogusky have rocked the world. I wanted to explore and learn from the world of independent agencies because they are the future. They are nimble and more often than not, fearless, because they don’t carry the baggage of the network with them.”

In 2005, he relocated to the Delhi branch of the agency as Associate Creative Director. In 2006, he left the agency to return to Contract as Creative Director, Delhi. This time, he was part of the team that created the campaign for Domino’s Cheese Burst Pizza with actor Arshad Warsi. He was instrumental in the recent refurbishment of Dabur Vatika at Contract. He also handled projects such as the launch of British High Commission’s initiatives in India and the launch of GNIIT 2009.

Banerjee has won several awards and accolades for his work. Most recently, at GoaFest 2010, he won one Silver and five Bronze metals for his work on the ‘Me and Meri Maggi’ campaign.
