Media placement: Walking Stick - Given To Old People Registering With HelpAge India - 8th Jan,2011

Describe the brief from the client
HelpAge India, a non-profit organization working for the welfare of the elderly, wanted to tell old people that they would be cared for at every step through an innovative medium.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The target audience was old, lonely and forgetful and therefore needed something that would be simple, thoughtful and a reminder of HelpAge India's support.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
We took an object that most old people depend on everyday - their walking stick and redesigned it. The handle of the stick was made to resemble a human hand with the helpline number of HelpAge India printed on it. These were given to old people registering with HelpAge India.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
Apart from the obvious physical support, the hand-shaped handle gave these old people tremendous mental support. This was evident by the increase in the number of calls to the helpline number.
