MUMBAI: It's a brand that much of Gen X, Gen Y and even Gen Z has grown up with. As one of the oldest and most popular stationery brands in India, Camlin has been a mass favourite. Since 2011, Camlin has been a part of Japan’s Kokuyo which enabled it to diversify its existing product range and delve into premium products too.

In the latest episode of Media Minds, Kokuyo Camlin CMO Saumitra Prasad talks about the brand journey after the ownership change and how technology is helping it stay relevant.

Speaking about its current digital-first marketing approach, Prasad says, “Initially, it was to check whether technology is a threat to us because we realise that children today are spending a lot of time on tablets and apps as compared to making paintings. We started by developing an app called Camlin Experience App, which would give children the experience of (using) the real colours and what we realised that, over time, children developed an interest in real colours.”

Social media engagement is also a high priority to get a pulse of the new generation. He is proud of the engagement that the brand is getting on these platforms. He shares that like its offline property Camlin Art Contests, it runs many competitions on Facebook as well which receives great response from kids.

He also talks about how the brand has been investing in research and development to create product differentiations based on specific needs and likings of users.
