Digital agency Indigo Consulting has retained the digital account of Asian Paints, India’s largest and Asia’s third largest paints company. The win comes after a multi-agency pitch, in which at least 10 agencies are known to have participated.


In view of its new identity and positioning, Asian Paints had invited presentations from various digital agencies to take its new positioning forward on digital media. Indigo Consulting, which has been working with APL since 2007 across web, mobile, social and search, won the pitch after three rounds, with two agencies making it to the final round.


The renewed mandate will see the agency continue to be involved with the brand to spearhead their digital initiatives across web, mobile and social media, while also exploring integrated customer experiences leveraging cloud computing.


Commenting on the appointment, Satish Kulkarni, General Manager Marketing, Asian Paints, said, “Asian Paints, in its endeavour to provide a better brand experience to the customer, is keen to inspire customers and partner them through their home painting process which is an essential part of creating their own beautiful home. Therefore, we required an agency which understands our customers and helps us convert consumer insights into a rich web usage experience across screens. Indigo Consulting brought on board the ability to best match consumer insight to consumer experience design, and execution capabilities. We are delighted to continue our successful relationship with Indigo Consulting.”

APL has been a very important client, and a wonderful brand to work with, and we are delighted that they have reaffirmed their faith in us. We look forward to continuing our efforts in making Asian Paints a world leading brand in the online world too.”
