The year has been a fairly good one for Scarecrow with new account wins across diverse categories. Compared to previous years, this year it wasn’t just projects and one-offs but complete account wins except for DLF which again brought them in as a part of the roster of agencies it has employed. The new accounts include DNA, MVL Mobiles, Quikr, and DLF (empaneled). The agency recently won creative duties for Viacom 18’s newly launched channel Sonic. There were the short-crisp campaigns for MVL Mobiles as well as Quikr but the jury felt the agency could have churned out sterner stuff. Overall, it has definitely been a better year for them, be it in terms of account wins or visible work and we hope to see that enhanced in the next year now.
