SapientRazorfish India creates an inspiring #ColoursOfGrey campaign for UltraTech Cement

colours of grey.jpgUltraTech Cement is India's largest cement manufacturer. Cement, a grey substance, is used by masons to lay strong foundations for our dreams, who, unlike us, do not have the privilege to celebrate any festival with the same fervour. Their world is encumbered with dust, mud, and cement - a grey world.
 
This Holi, the brand wanted a 360 degree integrated campaign and a launch campaign that people would remember. Through this campaign, UltraTech Cement leveraged the sentiment of the festival through the eyes of a mason.

Honours that special person," said Vivek Agrawal - ā€ˇGroup Executive President & CMO, UltraTech Cement, Aditya Birla Group

More often than not, they tend to miss the ones who enrich the experience for the consumer. With #ColoursOfGrey, we were able to put a spotlight on the ones who took the brand experience to another level." 
 
"The campaign endorsed a mason as the prime element in the film to embrace the message of happiness and celebration. We wanted masons in the industry to feel part of this festivity," added Dinesh Swamy, Senior Creative Director, SapientRazorfish, Mumbai
