AAIBA Design founder Saurabh Chandekar said, “Winning an international award is always a special achievement, and with this win at NYX Awards, 2023, we have added the second trophy to this landmark campaign. It was a very special campaign and a major creative endeavour for us as we aimed to combine the depth that the art of writing requires with the glamour and playfulness that the entertainment industry offers. We collaborated with SWA to understand their vision and created a flawless, holistic, unique, and impactful brand identity. I am glad that the jury at the NYX Awards, 2023, also found AAIBA’s efforts worthy of this global recognition.”
Sharing her thoughts on the SWA 2020 campaign creatives winning the prestigious NYX Award, SWA Awards, chair Manisha Korde said, “This campaign was a humongous task as we had to create a visual brand identity for the entire SWA Awards campaign, and held a lot of discussions with AAIBA about the world of screenwriters and our aspirations about the positioning of the awards, which are the first of its kind in India. AAIBA and SWA put their best foot forward. I am ecstatic that AAIBA’s vision for SWA Awards 2020 has fetched yet another international recognition through this win at the NYX Awards, 2023.”
