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.
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
Meher is one of our premium fashion clients. They are popular for their woolen and winter wear. When we first came across the logo of Meher, we found it to be a bit old fashioned. The logo needed a revamp. We initially thought of a reindeer as it was widely metaphorical to winter. However, many other big brands including Allen Solly and Abercrombie had a reindeer logo.
We wanted to make the logo stand out from the rest. Our theme for brand communication was wool!
The basic premise of Meher is Woolen Wear and the first thing that comes to anyone’s mind on hearing the term wool is a sheep. We decided to make it a Vector Based Sheep which would be self explanatory.
Hence the logo.
KEUCO’s passion for the bathroom runs through its veins, and this is evident in our products. At KEUCO, bathroom awakens the emotions. It is an intimate place of well-being. It conveys elegance and luxury, and it combines aesthetics, ergonomics and functionality.
Getting associated with a Germany-based company, Team Saket had to cross their comfort zone and step into a new world; but when creative minds get to work, the tougher it is, the better it gets!
… and it clicked! Our work went across Asia-Pacific region for this multinational client!
When you plan to do business in Pune, you really have to make sure you fit in. Although very progressive and educated, Punekars are pretty uptight about who they let in their elite circle of being a Punekar.
So when a big brand like the Jalan Group of companies came to us with a problem, we were taken by surprise. Now it so happened that the group who is into real estate and constructions, had noticed that many of their projects were given a stepmotherly treatment by Punekars living in the city areas and ‘Prabhat Road’. Perplexed about the possible causes, the client came to us to dig deeper and give them a transparent report on where they fall short.
When we talk about work that we did which received tremendous response, our campaign for Bhujbal Brothers’ real estate group comes to mind instantly. There is a reason for this. In 2013, the group approached Saket with a clear requirement- they had 10 different real estate projects in Pune which needed to be publicised and eventually of course, they needed to be sold.
After our careful analysis of the brand and its target audience, we noticed that most of the buyers were Maharashtrians who had enough money to buy a comfortable home, but, were very picky about splurging a big amount of money.
One of our oldest clients then – Ranka Jewellers wanted to do something out of the box for the launch of their 6th Shorwoom on Sinhagad Road in Pune.With a strong relation of around 20 years, they knew Saket Communications would do justice to their thoughts.
The launch had to be massive! Ranka Jewellers have a rich legacy in Pune. We had to match their legacy with someone mainstream. We were looking for a face that would be universally accepted and one that would epitomize “Being Indian” to the core..who better than Vidya Balan!
