Idiom design and consulting, a holistic design solutions provider, has chalked out aggressive growth plans in India and has appointed Shantanu Saha as Chief Executive Officer. This move comes in the wake of the company’s plans to drive growth in the Indian market and consolidate its position as the leading design consulting practice in India.

Elaborating on the expansion plans, Jacob Mathew, Director, Idiom, said, “We are excited about our presence in the Capital and we are sure that our team will ensure that we capitalise on this. Idiom is currently in the process of building its management team in India. We see tremendous opportunities and India has immense potential to take our business to the next level. We will ensure that we continue on this growth trajectory and align ourselves with market requirements to meet the challenges and opportunities in the coming years.”

Idiom started as an experiment in April 2005, and mentored by Kishore Biyani, MD, Pantaloon India, two distinct design firms – Esign and Tessaract – merged to form a common identity called Idiom. Today Idiom design and consulting is a leading holistic design solutions provider that helps organisations achieve the right and desired brand experience across the myriad consumer touch points.

He will be responsible for growing the company, setting in systems and processes and recruiting a team to ready Idiom for the next phase of growth.
