Chirpy Elephant : Agency Profile

We are tightly knit, pint sized shop with an eclectic bunch of talent. “We believe the ingenuity of any well crafted communication should sport a lively, engaging, mammoth idea and bring a massive smile to all concerned stakeholders.”

What made you start Chirpy Elephant?
My partner Jairam and I (Leela Ram), were feeling jaded, working for top MNCs and shops where it was all about toeing the line, humouring clients and heavy emphasis on billing. We felt we were moving away from the core reason of why we joined and enjoyed advertising. Besides we strongly felt, we were on a creative crusade to raise Chennai’s brand communication standards.

Tell us about your designers/animators. Did they go into fine art or design schools? How do you pick them up?
We have a fine mix of art talent. Our senior most resource is well rounded with local, national and international work exposure. We have Viscom grads that were handpicked because they had an eye for the ridiculous and also because they hailed from small towns, this helped bring fresher perspectives to the table and ensures a sane work culture.

Short rationale (optional):
‘Don’t drink and drive’. Its a message that is so ubiquitous in big cities, it has actually become a blind spot. What this jaded ‘public’ message needed was a personal touch. An emotional connect that would not only make people notice this message, but act on it.
