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 (www.breakupwiththewrongbra.com) loaded with information, encouraging them to evaluate their current lingerie choice.

Planet K by Happy Bangalore

Brief: Planet Kids, Bangalore’s leading playschool chain wanted an invite to announce their Annual Day celebrations. This invite would be given to students and their parents. The objective was to create excitement around the event and get their kids buzzing. Oh, and of course the invite had to be cost-effective.

Solution: So we decided to create something out-of-the-ordinary, something that would engage their students and get them to transfer the buzz onto their parents. And voila, the ‘hand puppet’ invite was born out of a mere sheet of A4 sized paper. We then went on to create five unique characters so as to encourage greater curiosity, creativity and playfulness among our tiny TG.
