MUMBAI: Over the years, Shemaroo has had to reorient its business to suit the changing ecosystem and consumer preference. Now, the content powerhouse has revamped its look as well by unveiling a new logo.

In its 55 years of journey, Shemaroo has witnessed various changes. 15 years ago, it went through a brand refresh. About 10 months ago, the company announced that it has embarked on a transformation journey.

Shemaroo gears up for digital era; adds devotional app Ibaadat

Speaking to Indiantelevision.com, Shemaroo Entertainment CEO Hiren Gada shared the experience. After a three-month selection process, Ogilvy India was approved as the creative partner. ?It?s the number one agency in the country. Shemaroo is a brand which has been around for 55 years, has been so closely guarded, so many people have such an emotional connection with the brand. If it has to undergo a refresh, it needs to be with the best,? Gada commented on the reason behind choosing Ogilvy as a partner.

Initially a B2C brand, over time, its business model has become B2B2C. However, the main target of the refresh is consumers. Gada believes that a strong B2C connection is needed before thinking about how people will perceive the change.

However, Shemaroo promises to stay loyal to the Indian audience by offering them entertainment with that ?special tadka?. ?India Khush Hua?, the new tagline, wants to convey the message of how the company wants to bring joy to Indians with multi-genre offering.

The logo comprises a series of overlapping layers in rich Indian colours while the shape of the design elements has been derived from the digital play button. ?They are already the modern forward-facing company that the logo reflects,? Ogilvy India CEO Kunal Jeswani said.

?What I found really interesting was the company has done so much to transform internally before they decided to do the external transformation of the brand. Then the task for us becomes much easier. For agencies, when you are transforming a brand externally, it?s far more difficult when the internal shift is going to happen after that. In the case of Shemaroo, it?s just the colours and logo reflecting the change,? he added sharing his experience working with Shemaroo.

To devise the new logo, Ogilvy undertook surveys for a thorough understanding of the brand, consumers and the trade through careful planning, exhaustive research and understanding of emergent trends.

A large part of its multimedia campaign will be through its own media. ?There are partner properties which we would be working with. We would also be buying some additional media. But primarily it would be on the digital domain. Because the consumer is largely digital, that?s where more targeted and faster refresh can be achieved,? Gada said.

The company has the ambition to achieve 5X growth in five years. Multi-genre and multi-language strategies are also on the anvil. Devotional content is a core area for the current time. Through the new identity, the company wants to convey their passionate commitment to the goal.
