Describe the brief from the client
November 14th is celebrated as Children’s Day in India. Perfetti, India’s largest confectionery company, wanted to wish children a Happy Children’s Day.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
Print, hoarding, mailers – children don’t pay attention to these. We wanted to reach out to children in their own language. The language of dreams.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
We made the ultimate dream of every child come true. We created a life-sized tree that sprouted candy. A child simply had to shake the tree and an assortment of toffees would rain down on him. What better gift to give children on their special day?

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The Candy Tree saw a footfall of over 1,000 children.
This has prompted us to take the tree across the nation and install it at various cities.
