It's Hello Goregaon, bye Kamala Mills for O&M

O&M has moved. And in typical Ogilvy tradition, they made sure they made some noise about it. The agency created a series of posters to support the shift, which was lined along the corridors of their office on the day of the farewell party. One of these features a guided tour from their former office in Kamala Mills to their new office in Goregaon. It's all in good fun, of course with the O&M team from Piyush Pandey, Abhijit Avasthi, Sumanto Chattopadhyay and Madhukar Sabnavis and JC Giri all thrown in for good measure.
