Axis Bank has announced the launch of the third phase of its advertising campaign around its brand philosophy of ‘Badhti ka naam zindagi…’ or ‘Progress On’. With a new cut on the philosophy articulated as ‘Badhne ke kai naam hai…’,the bank, for the first time in its evolution has got associated with a celebrity and has announced Deepika Padukone as its brand ambassador.


The campaign, that has been designed by Lowe Lintas revolves around the thought that progress has many dimensions and talks about the ‘holistic’ nature of progress and highlights Axis Bank’s journey as a customer centric bank. The new campaign has been directed by ad film director Gauri Shinde.


Speaking on the launch of the campaign, Rajiv Anand, President – Retail Banking, Axis Bank said, “The new film takes our brand positioning of Badhti ka naam zindagi… or Progress On… ahead. The campaign is based on the insight that Progress means different things to different people and can also be defined differently for the same individual at different times. This insight is captured in our new communication which brings to life the ubiquitous and multidimensional nature of progress.”


Arun Iyer, National Creative Director, Lowe Lintas and Partners said, “Badhti ka Naam Zindagi’ or ‘Progress on’ is the essence of brand Axis. In our earlier campaigns, we have explored this philosophy from various angles, be it an individual’s progress or the progress of the collective. The objective this year was to explore a new dimension of progress while showcasing the range of products, which brings us to the idea behind the campaign ‘Progress has many meanings’. It is not just material but also emotional and personal. While growing monetarily is important but it is also important to have value-system in place and that’s the whole thinking behind the philosophy of ‘Badhti ka Naam Zindagi’.”
