A herculean task of designing, branding, promoting and managing the entire event was undertaken by Saket Communications – The 3rd Roll Ball World Cup between December 15-20, 2015 at Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, Balewadi Pune.
The Game of Roll Ball
Roll Ball is a fast paced game that requires a combination of roller skating, Throw Ball and Hand Ball skills. The game was invented by Raju Dabhade in the year 2002 and the game is now is played by more than 65000 players in India and 40 countries in 5 continents globally. The game has high chance of getting into the Olympics.
Promoting a game of that caliber required a completely fresh approach. “Organising local events is one thing and organising a World Cup is yet another”! Our creative team got to work quickly. Being a game of immense national pride, we had already put our hearts into it!
“Bravery accepts no compromises. Courage doesn’t hesitate from sacrifices. The brave live their life on the edge..and they live it large. So when it is a matter of their own homes, why should they accept anything less than large?”
Shaurya Residences was the brainchild of Saket Communications for 3 S Properties, a client that wanted to build homes for defense personnel. As the message was clear, we thought of building a communications campaign on “bravery”- Hence, a lion perfectly epitomized the logo for the project.
Is it a challenge or a cakewalk to create a brand language for an already renowned and beloved brand? Well, thankfully we took it up as a challenge and turns out we nailed it! The brand we are talking about isn’t a product or a service but a person- a super famous musician, Shankar Mahadevan.
Yes, Team Saket was called upon by Shankar Mahadevan himself to manage his social media pages and create a unique brand identity for his social media presence. A daunting task if you ask us- the musical genius has a following of over 6 lakhs fans on his facebook page alone. Creating posts that would appeal to all these different people while keeping Shankar’s ethos intact was an interesting project.
NB, known for her namesake label – Nidhi Bhandari Fine Couture Footwear, is a wellknown footwear brand in Pune. The Shoe Couturier belongs to the renowned B. U. Bhandari Family, however, she is set on a journey to make her mark in the world of fashion footwear!
When we first spoke to Nidhi, she was about to launch her footwear label in the market. When we heard her story, we decided to place her as a fashion label meant for niche only. From events to hoarding and from magainzes to digital media, everything was handpicked keeping in mind the taste of her target audience.
Everybody has that one dream to own a piece of land. While purusuing this dream, many people fall for malicious deals and end up losing their money. Pate Developers wanted help people by giving them the right tools to achieve their dreams.
With the launch of Swarnabhoomi, Pate Developers started their new division which primarily worked on land dealings. They decided to approach Saket Communications for helping them with a kind of creative communication no one had seen before in land dealings.
Investing in a land is costlier than gold. Also, in Marathi language, soil has high emotional connect. We mixed the two and came up with the name – Swarnabhoomi.
TAG Awards, presented by The Active Group, have been recognising the most creative advertising campaigns in Pune for over a decade now. This year, Saket Communications won 3 awards in different categories.
The two categories which are awarded are Silver and Bronze!
We believe you must have already seen our video related to our TOUCH philosophy and even read about our thought behind it. Well, if you haven’t, check it out on B. U. Bhandari Touch Facebook Page
Today’s post, however, is about our choice of using the ‘line art’ to design our B. U. Bhandari TOUCH creatives. We are sure you must have struck a chord when you saw the dotted lines throughout the videos and Facebook posts we have created for the brand for over a year now.
So let’s take a moment and reflect on this peculiar choice of ‘line art’.
In order to explain this, we need to take you to the Group’s history and ideology in a nutshell. The B. U. Bhandari Group started way back in the 1920’s and has consistently expanded through hard work and clear work ethics. Over the long period of 96 years, the Group is now recognised for its impeccable service, wonderful customer-care and constant innovation- be it through the product range or offerings.
The Group has 8 different brands under its umbrella and each of the brands has created its own niche in their segments. Right from automobiles to housing and footwear to animation studio, the B. U. Bhandari Group gives its customers a wide variety of services and products to choose from.
At Saket Communications and Confluence, we are always looking to challenge ourselves, creatively! New ideas, new concepts, new line of thought and NEW Advertising Campaigns. We live in the present and focus of energies on how we can make the most of today.
We had a similar dayat the office recently. One of our premier clients – Triumph B. U. Bhandari briefed us about the Limited Edition Triumph Rocket X Motorcycle Launch. Only 500 motorcycles around the globe, of which, 2 would be sold in Pune. A niche client topped by a niche product needed a niche concept without a doubt.
Calyx – A group driven by purpose and ambition has grown into diverse sectors including Construction, Telecom and Entertainment within a span of two decades. They have emerged strong in all the sectors they are into.
When we were approached for their campaign, we were excited to get associated with a group of that magnitude. “Complimenting to the size of their business, this campaign had to be big”. Calyx had decided to go very aggressive on their offers and discounts for this particular campaign!
We got thinking!
Pune’s best kept secret for street shopping – Tulshibaug – has been a paradise for those seeking to experience window shopping and cheap bargains. With the place gaining popularity over decades, the locals and tourists flocking the place has made the place too crowded. However, the religious, traditional, financial and emotional connect that Tulshibaug has with the Pune’s heritage is inseparable.
On that note, Team Saket got to work for our clients Maple Group and Matoshree Estates to come up with something unique whilst not disturbing the connect that Punekars have with Tulshibaug. The answer was – Navi Tulshibaug
