The agency has also appointed 3 new associate creative directors - Joy Sen Gupta, Varun Goswami, who joins in from BBDO, India and Latheesh Lakshman, joining in from Wieden + Kennedy, Delhi. They will be based out of the Delhi office.
Commenting on Latheesh’s appointment, Nirmal Pulickal, Executive Creative Director said, “We are privileged to welcome Latheesh on board. He is easily one of the best art directors I have worked with and getting him to join Mudra North& East has been nothing short of a coup. We live and work in a region that is starved of good design, Latheesh joining us is the first step in the right direction to build on this front.”
On Joy and Varun’s appointment, Nirmal Pulickal, Executive Creative Director said, “Joy and Varun belong to a new breed of responsible, forward-thinking creatives that we are proud to welcome. With them, it’s not just about three print ads and a tvc, they explore newer ways of engaging the consumer. Their ‘Aviva Wall Of Books’ idea is a brilliant example of this.”
On re-joining Mudra, Gaurav Dudeja, Vice President, Mudra North & East said “I'm absolutely thrilled to be back at Mudra. It is one of the rare organizations that fearlessly backs its talent with newer opportunities and challenges, and that perfectly matches my personality.
