I'm so proud of our very talented and hardworking Creative, Planning and Account Management forces. Big Congrats to Andee and Sambit and their teams for the outstanding work done for Health Cha Shree Ganesh, which won us the prestigious Black Elephant, Volkswagen Identity which has won many accolades already, even in international awards forums and Nerolac - Rang De Patang. The credit of these awards also goes to our great clients who are ready to buy daring and path breaking work. There is a quote by Frank Ocean which I believe in. It says 'Work hard in silence and let success make the noise'. The noise that our success made drowned every other sound at Kyoorius and we've surely begun to love this noise."

Full credit goes to Sonal and his team for all the work they've been doing over the last few years. It is a vindication of the belief-work in silence, let success be your noise."
