Subhash Kamath, Managing Partner, BBH says, "We're absolutely delighted with this award! The scooter category in India had somehow been relegated to a very utilitarian kind of world. We decided to add some zest and play into the lives the young urban couples that were our target. The challenge was to differentiate us completely from other brands and yet remain strategically relevant. It's brave work and a brave client to back it. Watch out for many more in the coming year."
