TBWA\India is proving its mettle with the award-winning ‘Immigration Stamps Calendar’ for Yatra.com, India’s leading online travel enterprise.
In the 2011 ‘Design/Agency’ Pencil Rankings, reflecting winners from the One Show, TBWA\India ranks #8 in the world – the only Indian agency to break into the Top 30 in the category.
In the ‘Agency’ Pencil Rankings, TBWA\India sits at #61 globally, with only one other Indian agency in the Top 100. It’s a huge accolade for TBWA\India; one which the creative team is extremely proud of.
The ‘Immigration Stamps Calendar’ work has already won two Silver awards at One Show, in the categories of ‘Collateral Design – Promotion’ and ‘Direct Mail – Single’.
Background: Yatra.com provides everything from travel information and pricing availability, to booking facilities for domestic and international travel. The site offers a host of travel services designed to make business and leisure travel easy.
The brief was simple: make 2011 a year when people lock up their houses and head out. The challenge was to remind people on a daily basis that there are still places on earth that they haven’t seen, explored and enjoyed.
The solution: TBWA decided to give Yatra.com a new approach – travel not for a week or a month, but for the whole year, with a beautifully designed calendar of 365 immigration stamps to inspire people to pack their bags and see the world, every day. The message was: for the next 365 days, go out and explore the places that most people hadn’t heard of.
Rishi Chanana, Creative Director of TBWA\Gurgaon said, “The insight of the ‘Immigration Stamps Calendar’ lies within the piece itself – beautiful designs and forms of various immigration stamps from around the world to inspire people to travel. The idea was simple, yet creative, and fit perfectly with the vision of the brand.”
“I am elated at the success and win for Yatra.com’s Immigration Stamp calendar,” commented Pratik Mazumder, Head of Marketing and Strategic Alliances at Yatra.com. “The team at TBWA came up with this superlative idea to demonstrate Yatra.com’s portfolio of international holidays. We will continue to explore exceptional and break-through creative ideas for the brand. Kudos to the team at TBWA.”
TBWA’s Rishi Chanana added, “With award show recognition from One Show, this calendar is proving to be one of the most creative ideas in the areas of advertising and design for 2011. It makes me feel proud and grateful to see TBWA\India ranked in the Top Ten in the Pencil Rankings among other global agencies.”
