22feet Tribal Worldwide has announced the appointment of Vishnu Srivatsav as National Creative Director. Srivastav will take over from Debashish Ghosh, the former NCD at 22feet Tribal Worldwide, and will continue to report to Rahul Mathew, Chief Creative Officer, DDB Mudra Group.
Prior to this, he was Creative Head of DDB Mudra’s South office.
With Srivastav at the helm, the agency aims to marry brand-first thinking with digital-first solutions as it gears up for the next phase of growth.
Since his appointment at DDB Mudra in 2015, Srivastav has led some of the Group’s award-winning campaigns that also sparked conversations. Under his leadership, DDB Mudra’s South office produced work such as Puma’s ‘Suede Gully’ and Battlegrounds Mobile India’s ‘Game Responsibly’.
These campaigns earned recognition at Cannes Lions 2018 and a Grand Prix at Spikes Asia 2022.
Mathew said, “Vishnu has been a great partner to the organisation in our pursuit of creative excellence. He recently led our South office to one of our best years creatively. I look forward to him taking this momentum and his infectious energy into the exciting opportunity at 22feet.”
Preetham Venkky, President, 22feet Tribal Worldwide, added, “Vishnu has always been a huge source of inspiration for the creative team at 22feet. His grasp on culture, specifically internet culture, is arguably the best in the country, and established through his work over the years. We are super excited to have him come aboard, to inspire, shape and establish the culture of excellent creative work for our clients.”
Srivastav said, “It’s been a terrific journey with the DDB Mudra group so far. And to lead an awesome team of creatives and being part of one of the most exciting names in digital - 22feet Tribal Worldwide - is nothing short of a privilege. Can't wait to get started.”
In a career span of over 20 years, he has won over 150 accolades including consecutive Cannes Gold Lions, two Cannes Bronze, D&AD Inbooks, One Show Merits, and a D&AD Pencil for Writing in Press Advertising.
