WaterHealth entrusts Orchard Advertising with creative duties

MUMBAI: Orchard Advertising has bagged the creative mandate for WaterHealth India , a social enterprise in the community water space.


Other agencies who participated in the pitch included JWT Mindset, Mudra, Bates, Rediffusion-Y&R, Euro RSCG, Ogilvy and TBWA.


Orchard will handle the account out of its Bangalore office.


Confirming the news to indiantelevision.com, Orchard Advertising Bangalore VP and brand head Anish Daryani said, “I believe we out-hungered and out-passioned the other competitors in this case. We immersed ourselves in the planning and reached out to the areas of Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka where the client interacts with consumer.”


Thomas Xavier chairman and national creative director Orchard Advertising said “This is a great achievement for the agency, and we’d like to acknowledge the faith WaterHealth India has bestowed upon our abilities. I think we were able to immerse ourselves completely into the category, and consumers, which led to a thorough understanding of the business. We’ve acted in character, and have been rewarded for it.”


Daryani also said that this win gives further support to the fact that in today’s environment, the size of the agency doesn’t matter as “we are in the ideas business.” The agency has a designated team in place working on the project.


WaterHealth India COO Vikas Shah said, “WaterHealth’s business is a confluence of social and commercial objective plus the business is based on a decentralized public utility model. Given these complexities, the conventional advertising and marketing techniques don’t work in this space. We found Orchard to be appreciative of these challenges and willing to work within these boundaries; also their approach to consumer centricity and questioning of the established business practices appealed to us.”


WaterHealth marketing head India Arup Bansal added, “Orchard had a compelling and differentiated approach towards positioning our brand, Dr. Water, in the rural markets. The brand strategy proposed by Orchard resonated well with our business strategy and through this partnership we are geared to create a memorable and effective brand for rural India.”


“We used Leo Burnett’s proprietary brand tool named HumanKind which allowed us to have better brand insight and lead brand purpose in a better manner,” averred Daryani.


The media mix for ad campaign, slated to be launched in the coming month, will be activation-led and will primarily exploit BTL (below-the-line) and print media channels with special emphasis on brand engagement.


The aim of the campaign will be to help create saliency for the brand Dr. Water and help it command a premium in its segment. The end goal will be to establish leadership category.
