Rediffusion Y&R, which recently won the SBI Cap Securities account following a multi-agency pitch, has created a campaign series that breaks down the jargon associated with the category and simplifies the features of the product in a distinctive style. The series of six ads features a kid brother and his sister in everyday situations. The essence creates a high recall value and brand identity, while focusing on the benefits the brand has to offer.

Commenting on the campaign, Sreejith Kodoth, Creative Head (Art), Rediffusion Y&R, said, “Breaking the campaign in six separate ads was the perfect strategy. It gave us the scope to simplify the benefits and also made for a much more expressive communication program. We avoided jargon and heavy financial words – the kids, in their own way, brought the idea alive in a charming fashion.”

Mani Palvesan, Managing Director, SBI Cap Securities, commented, “We threw a challenge at the agencies to communicate multiple benefits in one campaign. Rediffusion Y&R managed to come back with a solution that not only brought all the benefits alive; but also managed to de-jargonise the category for the common man. What we liked about the creative strategy was that it was clutter-breaking and connected instantly. It was simple, clear and bang on our requirement. The central characters of the film, the kids, showcase great bond and unspoken understanding that we as a brand believe is important between us and the customers.”
