UDigital launches new brand viz Arr

MUMBAI: Ronnie Screwvala, B Saikumar and Ajay Chacko founded digital media venture UDigital has announced a new brand named- Arr?. The venture plans to go live with it later this calendar year.

Arr? portrays a range of emotions; from the ?surprised and the questioning? to the ?friendly thumbs up affirmative? to ?disagreement and protest? to ?Arr? yaar!? It crosses boundaries of language, audience groups and geographies. Arr?  will be an original  content  destination  which will  be  a  unique  storytelling  platform  across  genres and formats.   

Arr? will express itself across mediums, from text to graphic art to podcasts and video in multiple genres such as reality and fiction, factual and opinionated as well as pure entertainment. It is working with collaborators across the spectrum in developing original content;   from   writers,   artists,   journalists   and   storytellers   to   independent   filmmakers, established production houses as well as upcoming talent in fiction, reality and non-fiction genres.

UDigital, managing  director B Saikumar said,  ?Arr?  was  born  out  of  the  need  to  create  a  truly  disruptive  digital  product.  Our  philosophy  is  to  continuously  challenge  the ?moulds? of format, media and structure to create content that is reflective of good storytelling in a digital environment. Much like the name, we hope to make Arr?, the brand, a part of daily conversation in India and globally!?  

 The word Arr? is one of the most commonly spoken Indian colloquial term which signifies ?Hey?. While its origins are in Hindi, it is an expression that?s not only understood throughout the length and breadth of the country but has also been included in the Oxford dictionary of the English language, as an ?all purpose Indian-English interjection?.

 The accent on the ? in Arr? is reflective of the varied expressions and emotions that the brand will straddle, as well as its international outlook. 

The logo and visual identity of Arr? is being designed and developed by AREA 17, an interactive agency based in Paris and New York. AREA 17 has an acclaimed body of work on international brands in media such as Vice, Quartz, The Atlantic,, Facebook, Pinterest and more.
