Speaking on the appointment, Ankur said, “The best thing about advertising is that it unfolds a whole new chapter every time you get deeper into it. The shift in digital is happening worldwide where advertising and content are battling with each other now. Most of the content unfolds on phones or laptops, leading to thinking of more impactful design and art solutions. Kinnect offers a rich playfield for ideas and design that ride on digital and tech. With this mandate, I look forward to building on Kinnect’s existing strengths and capabilities in design and ideas with the team here. The creative energy here is irresistible, and I look forward to partnering with some of the best talents to drive design and ideas and build on Delhi and Bengaluru offices. The time is to unlearn and learn much more, and I see many innovations and experiments soon here.”
