Orbit has been the big one. The account that brings Umbrella into the arc lights, especially since they are building a brand in a category where brand building is a recent phenomenon.Another significant achievement is the organic growth, especially through Marico. Increased responsibility for an FMCG major like Marico is a positive augury for the health of the agency as well as for the future of the agency.All in all, a very good year. It is only their lack of TV and new media which limits their prospects...
How Campaign India rates the agency: 7
