Idea Cellular – Idea Internet All India 
 The 3rd largest mobile operator in India, launched the ‘Idea Internet All India’ campaign to build the category of mobile internet services in India.
The campaign builds on a simple cultural insight – “in India, people easily fall prey to everyday small cons for lack of information”. Internet is a great information leveller and Idea used this insight to drive the message. The Big Idea was- “India mein ab No Ullu banaoing”, meaning “now no one can make a fool of anyone in India”. The communication ended with the message “Idea Internet All India” dramatized by the catchphrase “har mobile par internet, what an idea!” (English: Internet on every mobile, what an idea!).

Ooredoo – Ooredoo 
The Ooredoo brand was launched during the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2013 in order to deliver maximum impact and the launch saw a series of renowned speakers such as Cherie Blair and Dr. Hamadoun Toure of ITU take part.
Ooredoo wanted to unleash the potential of its customers throughout the group to go beyond simply connecting people to helping people achieve their full potential and supporting human growth in all its dimensions. Overall, Ooredoo recognises the potential of communications to transform lives by empowering people– and that supported the choice of the new brand and name.


Orange – Go Europe
‘Go Europe’ is a series of new roaming offers that Orange started offering in 2013 to simplify roaming charges for customers in Europe and are designed specifically to instill confidence in customers by guaranteeing that there will be no surprises.
At a time of phenomenal innovation in the telecoms market, the issue of roaming continues to be a sore spot for the industry due to a historical legacy of customers who have faced unexpectedly large bills.
With this in mind, Orange wanted to drive customer adoption of its roaming services up by making them more affordable and eradicating the associated fear of running up large bills. Simplicity and transparent pricing.

Smart Communications – Jump In
The Jump In campaign was aimed to encourage the youth to “Jump In,” to go for their dreams and embrace change – such as a change in cellular networks – that would enable them to “Live More,” in line with Smart’s overarching brand campaign.
The campaign had to make Smart relevant to them while establishing that it is young and cool, and that it spoke their language. Jump In sparked record-breaking buzz and online conversations for the brand, making it one of the most talked about launches of 2013.
