Describe the brief from the client
Planet Kids, Bangalore's leading play school chain wanted an invite to announce their Annual Day celebrations. This invite would be given to students and their parents.
Describe the challenges and key objectives
The objective was to create excitement around the event and get their kids buzzing. Cost-effectiveness was key.
Describe how you arrived at the final design
So, we decided to create something out-of-the-ordinary, something that would engage their students and get them to transfer the buzz onto their parents. And voilà, the 'hand puppet' invite was born out of a single A4-sized sheet!

The invite soon became the children’s new, favourite toy and kept them entertained long after the event.
