Hakuhodo Percept has bagged the complete creative mandate for mattress brand Sleepwell, the flagship brand from the Sheela Foam Group.


In a multi-agency pitch that involved strategy, creative and execution plan presentations including Digital, BTL and ATL, Hakuhodo Percept was a clear winner when compared to Enormous Brands, The Mob, Synapse and Thinking Folks. The incumbent agency was Equus Redcell.


Brand Sleepwell is the number one brand among the top 10 mattress brands in India. As per available data, the size of the Indian mattress market is estimated at Rs 5,000 crore, of which the organized market constitutes Rs 2,500 crore is growing at 12-15 per cent per annum.


In keeping with Sleepwell’s philosophy, Hakuhodo Percept will be building further on the differentiator of “Sleepwell My Mattress”, a new concept in the Indian mattress industry that not only enables the customer to choose the right mattress but also differentiates the brand Sleepwell. The task for the agency ahead will be to communicate to the consumer the advantages of a Sleepwell mattress over other products available in the market place and create awareness about the different surface feels to suit individual preferences, be it a hard mattress, a medium hard mattress or a soft mattress, all available at the same price point. Plans are afoot towards a 360-degree communications programme.

Their ability to think out of the ordinary and to present a strong differentiating strategy for the Brand Sleepwell convinced us, on the merits of this new partnership.”
