Sunny Side Up bags the creative mandate for Shekhar Kapur and AR Rahman's Qyuki.com
Qyuki.com, the social creative platform has appointed Sunny Side Up to manage its creative duties. The six year-old agency with offices in Hyderabad and Bangalore will be involved in supporting the platform with its online campaigns for promotion and building sustainable digital assets.
An initiative of Shekhar Kapur and AR Rahman, Qyuki.com intends to look at the new paradigm in social media by helping people follow their creative interests. And Qyuki will be supported by Sunny Side Up in finding newer ways of engaging with the platform’s growing user base.
Qyuki.com is targeted at Indian youth residing in Tier 1, 2 and 3 markets, and Indian diaspora, aged 18 to 35 years. According to Bidisha Nagaraj, Qyuki’s Chief Marketing Officer, “The platform aims to unlock the creative potential of India by empowering people’s self-expression and enable them to build their creative identity. At Qyuki, Indian youth come together to experience differentiated content created by Masters. They also get an opportunity to interact, learn and co-create content with creative experts with a potential of themselves becoming brands of the future. In Sunny Side Up, we found a partner who understands the need of a unique platform like Qyuki to continuously stay relevant to its target”.
Somak Chaudhary, Creative Director and Founder Partner of Sunny Side Up believes Qyuki.com brings a unique opportunity for the six-year old agency to explore creative means of spreading the word. He says, “For once, we’ll implore our target audience to do exactly what they have been passionate about. We are trying to evaluate how to create new media properties to nudge people to start doing what they really love. This is what makes it interesting and challenging at the same time”.
Anand Krishnan, one of the Founder Partners of Sunny Side Up says, “We see our role going beyond being communication partners for Qyuki. What really excited us was the vision of the founders and the challenge of being involved with a brand that’s not created by any of us, but by the community. It’s a great learning for us just to be supporting the brand as it evolves”.
Interestingly, Sunny Side Up has had a track record of being assisting start-ups with their communication and strategy needs. Apart from handling marquee clients such as the Indian School of Business, Bharathi Cement, Microsoft, and Computer Associates among others, the agency has supported Beam Fiber – a start-up ISP based out of Hyderabad – to evolve into one of the most valuable businesses in its sector.
Somak Chaudhary signs it off saying, “It is the excitement of co-authoring a growth story that makes it even more rewarding. We’re sure Qyuki.com will have a wonderful narrative of its own as we proceed further”.
