Hungama Digital Services to manage SunRisers' digital activities

MUMBAI: Hungama Digital Services (HDS) will be working on the complete online and social media content for SunRisers, an IPL team owned by Sun Group.

Incidentally, JWT, which won the creative duties of the new team, earlier this year acquired HDS and works with them to offer digital marketing and social media solutions to its clients.

Sun Group, the owner of the Hyderabad IPL franchisee, unveiled the name and logo of its Hyderabad IPL team, designed and conceptualized by JWT. The Sun Group named its IPL team, ‘SunRisers‘ symbolizing birth of a new life.

JWT India has designed the Hyderbad team‘s logo, team identity and will be working on the entire 360 communication for Team SunRisers. The jersey launch will be closer to the IPL season.

JWT Chennai VP and general manager M L Raghavan said, "The brief to the agency was simple. ‘The name and logo of the team is being revealed on the 20th at Hyderabad. How best can you bring this alive?‘ Senthil and his team came up with the wonderful idea of using silhouettes to bring alive the power of the sun and the soaring eagle. Once the idea was cracked, the film was completed in a record four days along with digital initiatives like getting the website up and running, creating the Facebook page and a Twitter account."

According to the agency, the ‘SunRisers‘ logo depicts an eagle soaring high, looking into the core of a rising sun, absorbing the colors of the bright star to become ‘one with the sun‘. "The new identity encapsulates the valor, chivalry, endurance, independence and fearlessness of the eagle synthesising with energy and radiance obtained from sun," the agency said.

Sharing his thoughts on the conceptualisation and execution of ‘chanthem‘, the first brand film for SunRisers JWT India NCD Senthil Kumar, said: "The chanthem, is a visual idea amplified by a rocking chant created by Swarathma The Band. "Shooting in the morning magic light hours only i.e. shoot only when the sun is rising between 5am and 7am for a few days until we got the right shots but since time was limited we captured a combination of natural light and studio light and put this film together with some intense post production. It was a step up moment for the production team as well."
