Metis Talent Management brand new website goes live

Last fortnight was a joy, as we came to the launch of Metis Talent Management's website. Metis is a Singapore based organisation that advises clients on Talent Management with a primary focus on Talent Development and Organisation Design. Best wishes to team Metis!

The other great thing is how folks at Metis approached this by going in for a full overhaul, including getting a new logo and brand colours. Do leave your comments on what you feel about the website and the logo!!

Tedha Hai Aur kaafi bore ad bhi

I noticed a TV ad of a 'snack' featuring Juhi Chawla. This fairly long ad ends with the punchline 'Tedha hai par mera hai'. True, creative ads need not always come from big agencies. or vice versa as in this case. Someone was kind enough to put the ad on YouTube. Yes, deep pocket clients demand,"Give me something out of the world" and advertising agencies oblige. Yes, this ad is quite out-of-the-world as far as I am concerned. Mindblowing (!) too. And quite jarring too.

I am not buying Kurkure anytime, no I would not. And I would even not take an Airtel connection even if they run the Maddy & Vidya Balan ad five hundred times in three hours.

 

The creativity of the ad has been killed by the big media budget. They need to pull out some money from the incessant carpet bombing of this ad to creating meaningful ads- more ads with less number of rotations on the TV screen.

Don't you think you are being a tad harsh ? :-) . I kinda liked both ads.

The Maddy one better than the loud Juhi one. I have seen worse and don't even talk about US ads and creativity -- seems mutually exclusive.

Big money should not mean a compromise on creativity, but at times it ends up that way ...

Nice Blog

Gulmohar - maybe I am not the targeted segment for either the Airtel phone or the snack item. And for the records, I love both Maddy and Vidya :)

I so agree with you as far as the Airtel ad goes!

CIO India is launched but wondering who gets copies.

While International Media GroupIDG has brought one of its most popular IT publications for managers CIO, subscribing to it is a pain. The first issue of CIO India was published in Nov 2005 and according to IDG, currently distributes 6000 copies across India. I wonder who gets them.Having followed US edition of CIO (It is absolutely first rate) for a while now, I was quite delighted to know there is an Indian edition too. However, try to subscribe to a paper copy. First, there is no concept of paid subscription. One need to register a request for a print subscription, and that begins an endless wait to hear whether your subscription was approved or not. (I registered in May 2007 and am still waiting to hear back from them!). And no, CIO does not sell off the shelf, it only comes into your letter box.I wish this subscription request and acceptance process is improved significantly if CIO India has to indeed make a mark. I have sent multiple emails over the last three quarters and follow…

Ideacopter's 'Marketing for all' mission.

Since we started www.ideacopter.com at the turn of the year, we ventured into the unknown. But having a very exciting four months and we feel our mission of making marketing accessible to startups is more valid than ever. Marketing in general, but more specifically branding, digital marketing etc is practised in a very unscientific fashion in most startups. But the great thing is that all startups realize Brand is something they can't afford to ignore anymore, especially, if they wish to scale up. We at Ideacopter attempt to fill that gap. Let's see how the rest of the year goes.
