Van Golsalves : Interview with an Advertising Art Director

“I’m a little crazy and a little funny and a little musical and a little cartoony and a little anti-social and a little kid.”

Why are you into Advertising?
I’m not into advertising. Who said I’m into it? Sue them.
 I’m into music and drawing and sarcasm.

Did you attend school for fine art or design or Communications?
Yes I did attend a commercial art college but it was totally useless.
 The best artists are the ones for whom art comes from within.
 Luckily my bad college in a way helped me from becoming stereotypical.


Break Up With The Wrong Bra

Lingerie brand amanté has enjoyed considerable success since their launch in India 4 years ago. Keen on taking the brand to leadership status in the country, amanté wanted a campaign that would educate women on the importance of wearing the right bra. As inner wear is still considered a delicate subject in India, communication had to be bold yet relatable.

Working out of a common yet lesser-known statistic that 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong sized bra we conceptualized a campaign that urged women to come to terms with this fact and BREAK UP WITH THE WRONG BRA.

In order to stand out from conventional innerwear advertising, we decided to showcase real women talking about relatable bra problems. Print, outdoor, activations and digital banners lead women to a microsite ( loaded with information, encouraging them to evaluate their current lingerie choice.
