Salt Showreel 2013

FOX BS 238 - Channel Branding Proposal FOX BS 238 targets the urban Japanese female audience aged 20-49 with popular shows that set trends and entertain seamlessly. The challenge was to develop a graphics package to complement the image of the channel, woo the female TA and at the same time avoid alienating the male audience. To overcome this, we used the circular forms of the universe as a visual metaphor, which also hold significance in Japanese culture, to develop this proposal. A myriad of changing kaleidoscopic colors and elements were used to engage the audience in the web of entertainment which the channel offered.

Dhamaal - Channel BrandingDhamaal is a regional GEC that caters to a primarily female urban audience which is quite traditional in their moral system. The challenge was to create a graphics package which appealed to Indians all over the world and brought forth a sense of pride and ownership. For this, we used metaphors derived from the circular patterns of Diwali crackers, rangolis and Rajasthani attires etc. which every Indian can easily connect to. Along with these, vibrant colours and feminine elements were employed to create a visual packaging unique to Dhamaal’s image.

Mastiii - Channel Branding An enjoyable pot-pourri of music and comedy, Mastiii targets every Indian who is in mood for some fun. The task was to create a packaging which went hand-in-hand with the channel image. In our channel packaging, we equated Mastiii with honeybees which make honey by arduously collecting nectar from various flowers – a procedure similar to Mastiii’s job of collecting tunes from different periods and genres creating various moods amongst its audiences leaving everyone delighted.

Sony SIX - Channel Branding Proposal Coming up amongst a deluge of already-established sports channels, Sony Six wanted a never-before seen coverage of sports and insisted on something ‘different’. Being a sports channel targeting young and passionate sports lovers, we felt it needed a channel branding that complemented the action-filled brand image. In our proposal, we created channel package which used lava extensively as a visual metaphor symbolizing the passion and fire within the tension-filled world of action sports.

Zee Action - Channel Branding Zee Action showcases the best and most sought after Bollywood action flicks. It required a channel packaging which placed it as the destination for high-octane action movies. Without complicating the message, we came up with a simple execution, truly highlighting ‘action’.
The creative idea was to highlight the typical perception of a Bollywood action channel by showcasing top-of-mind action elements like car chases, gun-shots etc. in the channel identity.

Zee Business - Channel Branding Being one of the two channels offering business news in Hindi, Zee Business needed to re-establish itself strongly amongst the majority of Hindi-speaking audience. Using ‘Aapka Faayda’ as the concept, we aced the task at hand by signifying growth with the upward moving arrows. The ascending movement of these arrows keep up pace with rapidly changing market scenario and signify updates on latest insights and trends from the world of finance. Using glossy blue and yellow gold as the dominating colours, a dynamic and fresh identity was created for Zee Business.

Zee Premiere - Channel Branding The challenge while working on Zee Premiere was to establish it as a channel which premieres the most-popular and enjoyed movies of Bollywood. To capture this essence of the channel, we used elements unique to a film premiere. By showing a film reel making its way to a premiere on a red carpet amidst the cheer, glamour, fanfare and a lot of popcorn, we highlighted the feel of a premiere show and created a fresh look for the channel.

Gandhi in us - Film/Commercial Decades ago, one man exhibited the power of non-violence by ending the long-standing colonial rule of the British Empire over India. Today, our country is plagued with problems of a different kind which yet again prompt a change in our society. With the recent happenings in our nation where a lot of youngsters are opting for the Gandhian way to deal with issues, we found it ideal to spread this message on Gandhi’s birthday in a manner that people could relate to.

News 7 - Channel Branding Delving deep into a news story with razor-sharp reportage, dissecting each element of the story and presenting it with a high-degree of transparency and accuracy.

Mathrubhumi News - Channel Branding Mathrubhumi has always been the authority on credible and fair journalistic practices. The visual language for the channel needed to be more in sync with the news and inform the viewer in a useful and incisive manner. It deserved a visual identity that married inventive use of graphics to the channel’s legacy of ethical reporting of news.
Being fully aware of Mathrubhumi’s stature as a respectable news entity, certain innovations were developed to make the news more relevant and suited to the audience as well as carry forward the responsible image of the channel.

BBC Entertainment - Festive ID ProposalBBC Entertainment was looking for an identity with the theme being India’s festival of lights, Diwali. For this, they were wary of having any clichéd visual elements and wanted to represent the festival in very modern and contemporary manner. Our concept, the birth of Diwali, highlighted the values that Diwali is about. It abstractly showed the origin of light and its gradual spread, touching lives and transforming them for the better.

Star Chinese - Channel Branding The existing content of Star Chinese was diverse and it deserved a visual treatment which could capture the throbbing pulse of the channel. Having closely followed the channel’s offering, our core thought became - ‘Fun never stops at Star Chinese’. While thinking of taking it forward, we hit upon the idea of Pixels. Colourful Pixels together weave the visuals in TV and we decided to use them as a visual metaphor and marry it with the core thought. We gave the endless pixels vibrant candy-like colours and created a world of them where they interacted with each other. Each element of our graphics package was carefully devised to guarantee a more pleasurable and engaging viewing experience. This made for a lively identity which complemented the fun-filled content of the channel. Video Pictures

Zee Russia - Channel Branding Catering to a primarily female audience, Zee Russia wanted an identity which could fuse beauty & elegance with the colorful brilliance of the Indian culture and result in an enhanced viewing-experience.
Draped in pristine and feminine colors, the visual metaphor of a peacock-feather is used to bring forth the grandiosity of the brand to its audiences. Indian and vibrant in its overtures, this stylized representation of the peacock feather reaches out to its audience because of its grace and inherent beauty. Video Pictures
