What’s in the name?

When we got to the core of it and stimulated our brain muscles, we realized that ‘Wit’ and ‘Chai’ are 2 things that our company cannot function without.

Why we do it?

Advertising used to be impactful & witty and had an amazing recall value attached to it. In the transition phase from traditional media to digital platforms, the quirk and ‘wit’ got lost and it all became too mathematical and sales-oriented. We wanted to get that wit back. So, we decided to enter this industry and create advertisements that we, as consumers, would love to see.

How we evolve?

Evolution in any business is based on three core pillars.

  • Enthusiasm of staff
  • Access to knowledge
  • Support of management

We implement all three in order to ensure that we are at the absolute cutting edge of advertising.

For example, we were one of the first agencies to spot, figure out and execute a campaign in Augmented Reality on Instagram.

Social responsibility in social media

At Wit and Chai, we don’t take up clients promoting alcohol, smoking, and other derogatory habits. We also avoid taking up political clientele because we don’t want to influence people at a level where it has an adverse effect on the functioning of our society. To quote Don Draper from his famous letter: Why I’m Quitting Tobacco. “Here was my chance to be someone who could sleep at night, because I know what I’m selling doesn’t kill my customers.”

Need of the hour

Being consumers ourselves, we understood the importance of privacy and how it gets exploited on social media. We feel that we need to have stringent privacy laws in place so that the digital place can be a much safer space for consumers.

We learned the hard way

Not all brands appreciate good advertising and disruption is not always mandatory for effective advertising.

Did we just share that?

A client asked for (not exaggerated) 17 revisions of the same creative and ended up approving the original creative.

They work with us

Wit and Chai Media, has worked with significant brand names in India such as Swiggy, McDonald’s, MTV, Red Bull, Amul, and Chitale Bhandu Mithaiwale.

Industry as we foresee

Massive democratization of content creation is a key change that will emerge throughout the industry. A room full of people creating content has a limit on the number of ideas. More people will start creating content for brands. The ‘hard selling’ part of advertising will also become extinct as the advertising will become a part of the content the consumer wants to consume. Brainless and sales-y advertising is on its way to extinction.

A day without Internet

A day without the internet would be declared as a holiday at the agency.

Lastly, are you hiring?

We’re hiring people in all divisions of the company. We are also hiring people that come from job experience in any field of art other than advertising, but want to explore advertising as creative channelization of their abilities.
