Campaign Score: 7
 
How CRAYONS rates itself: 8

Unlike for most of the industry reeling under a slow down, at Crayons, the year 2009 started with a bang, with the agency bagging the global online campaign for Incredible India! And it only got better: Congress followed and then came IREO among others. All this action kept the agency busy and the financials healthy. The year so far has been good and we expect to register growth of about 35% this year! If the agency’s performance is to be judged on financial parameters, top line or bottom line, then Crayons deserves full marks! We pitched against the biggies and won business, and delivered well. Congress, Incredible India!, Ireo… the accounts won were big and prestigious and made 2009 a memorable year for us.
