The team size of Think Design is 125 and 30 per cent of revenues comes from overseas markets. Notes a communique: Think Design will continue to be led by its co-founders – Deepali Saini, Hari Nallan and Rama Aleti – and will become a key part of Havas India and Ekino Global, led respectively by Vishnu Mohan (Chairman & CEO Havas SEA/India) and Yann Doussot (CEO Ekino).


Said Yannick Bolloré, Chairman and CEO Havas Group, in a statement: “We really believe that in today’s world, customer experience is key to all brands to make them more and more meaningful to their audiences. It is mandatory to have the right solutions across touch-points. Over the past few years at Havas we have been reinforcing our digital experience capabilities in Europe, Asia and North America with the acquisitions of Boondoggle, Project House, Fullsix/Ekino and Plastic Mobile. Adding Think Design to the Havas family allows us to further strengthen our global digital experience offering and increase our footprint in India where we aim to triple our presence and operations. I am delighted to welcome the teams on board.”


Added Hari Nallan, Founder and CEO of Think Design: “At Think Design, we have always believed that collaboration with the right minds can lead to the greatest results. During our conversations with Havas leadership, we experienced a very strong connection and equally great synergy. We have no doubt that Think Design’s integration into Havas Group will help us become an even stronger, global force to reckon with. We are now several steps further towards realising our vision of being a leading global player in Design for the connected world. This is an exciting time for us and the results are just around the corner!”


Vishnu Mohan, Chairman & CEO, Havas India & South East Asia said: “Think Design is poised to be among the largest design innovation consultancies in the world and their addition will further strengthen Havas Group’s integrated offering, ensure an agile, seamless and dynamic service to our clients as well as add greater momentum not just to our India operations but to the network, globally.
