Cult.Sport has appointed Wunderman Thompson for its creative duties.
The agency will be responsible for providing strategic and creative services for the brand.
The account was won post a multi-agency pitch.
Shamik Sharma, managing director, Cult.Sport, said, “While India has the world’s largest youth population, only a few take up any sports or fitness activity. As a sport-first brand of this country, we want every Indian to make sports an indelible part of their everyday life using our range of Cult.Sport products. In Wunderman Thompson India, we have found an agile agency that understands this sporting culture, which is evident through its award-winning sports films and campaigns. As a team, we plan to up the game and create some clutter-breaking communication for the brand.”
Vijay Jacob Parakkal, managing partner, East and South, Wunderman Thompson India, said, “Amidst the fierce competition in the high-performance sports and fitness market, it's important to recognise that in India, sports and fitness transcend mere performance—it embodies a way of life. Cult.Sport's distinctive business philosophy of simplifying sports and fitness resonates deeply with all of us. We are committed to forging a close partnership with our client team to help them achieve their ambitious business objectives. Leveraging our expertise in creative, data, and technology, we are uniquely positioned to provide comprehensive end-to-end solutions tailored to their specific business needs.”
Arjun Mukherjee, vice president and senior executive creative director, Wunderman Thompson India, said, “Interestingly we are an office full of sports fanatics and this pitch was like a 100-meter dash that got our adrenalin flowing at every step. It was a high to present ideas for an awesome, homegrown, sports shoe brand and we are elated to be the first to touch the finishing line.”
