Creative Execution
For IMPACT, front pages were used, and for CREDDIBILITY, newspaper mastheads, headlines and news articles were used across 30 publications, 25 editions with a total circulation of 22.58 million. Uninor launch was showcased as editorial pick for the headline of the day on the front page with a news article on the day of launch, first time in the history of Indian advertising. This is alongwith strip ads on page 1-2-3 with the same look and feel in the publications at centre of the page. While the centre strip was across publications, Times of India also replaced their 'T' of 'Times' with the logo of Uninor on the day of launch

Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Uninor was the 12th player launching in a $475million category. The challenge was to position Uninor as a voice of the aspiring young Indian as encapsulated in their brand line 'It’s my time now'. Selected markets ruled out more evocative media like National TV and mandated use of Print. The Lower middle class youth (our TG) looked up to print media to shape their opinions. Thus in a highly competitive category, and regulated editorial environment, we co-created advertising with publications for delivering IMPACT and CREDIBILITY
