#OtherSideofBurnett - Aditi Jain

Meet Aditi Jain, a Brand Strategy Director at Leo Burnett. While she draws conclusions for a living, she draws illustrations to humour herself and to be her own shrink and muse. She started out as a closet illustrator, drawing gifts for friends and to document the advertising hustle bustle around her. But eventually on popular demand for prints of her work and an appreciative nudge from her favourite author, she decided to share them with the Instagram world. Although she believes her style is still evolving, her illustrations are designed to draw from the white space around them.

#OtherSideofBurnett - Sreenath Nair

They say a tattoo is more than just an imprint on one's skin, it’s a reflection of one's character. And when not illustrated correctly it leaves a lasting bad impression, and a bad taste in the mouth! On that note, introducing, Sreenath Nair. A Brand Service Associate at Arc, who was once at the receiving end of a bad tattoo. Regretting the bad ink job, he knew he could do better. And he did. He set up his own tattoo studio: Naughty Needles Tattoos, which, after working hard on his dream for 9 years, are present in Goregaon and Thane. Sreenath specialises in Portraits, Colour and Bio-Mechanical tattoos. So if you are someone who takes their ink seriously, You know where to be.

#OtherSideofBurnett - Shreya Budhiraja

We are going to take you through the sweeter side of Burnett. Desserts are a great antidote to everything that spells a blue mood. And nobody knows this better than Shreya Budhiraja, who has mastered the art of baking and is also a proud addition to our Leo Burnett family. She is a Brand Associate at our Gurugram office since 2017 and has been carrying out her sweet dreams on the side. Shreya realised that her food made people smile and thus, Sucrose was born. A place where her dream of baking came true and the smiles increased by numbers. Sucrose specialises in deconstructed classic desserts, cheesecakes and alcohol infused trifles. Shreya has plans to collaborate and create new memorable menus and recipes. She recently exhibited Sucrose in the Dessertarian Festival at Select Citywalk, Saket, marking Sucrose’s first appearance. We all love the decadence of Sucrose but make sure you do get a piece of the pie!

#OtherSideofBurnett - Kiron Kumar

#OtherSideofBurnett - Kiron Kumar

What is 'primitive', really? The text book definition says it is the 'preservation of character at its early evolutionary stage'. But today we are here to tell a very different story. A story about a person at Leo Burnett India who gives ‘Primitiv’ a brand new meaning (and spelling). Presenting Kiron Kumar, a Brand Services Associate by day, and a guitarist for his very own Death Metal band ‘Primitiv’ at other times. Lords of Primitiv came into being 5 years ago, but Kiron's pursuit for metal began at the age of 12. Not only has his music introduced him to a new world but has taken him around it too. Primitiv released their first track in 2017 and if you haven’t had enough, you can walk into one of his gigs at the Hard Rock Cafe, AntiSocial, Humming Tree and plenty others. You will surely find us there and we hope to see you too.

#OtherSideofBurnett - Ayshwarya Sharma

'A gallery that showcases the authenticity of a musician in the making. Sounds too good to be true? Well, it isn’t. Ayshwarya Sharma, a Brand Strategy Associate at our Mumbai office, saw the need for a medium to bring musicians closer to their dreams. 'Instrupad’, a start up by Ayshwarya and her friends was born to decentralise the way musicians produce, create and release content. Instrupad curates profiles for musicians to help them reach out to other musicians, instrument manufacturers and music schools. ‘Instrupad’ is one of the few music platforms that have actually made a difference. It was even picked as a wild card winner, at an international startup competition called ‘Startup Storm’ by StartupWind. Ayshwarya, being a vocalist herself, understands the sacred relationship between a musician and her work, and hopes to one day educate the world about the science of music. We, her family at Burnett, are all ears.

Kevin completed 25 years with LB on 27th May 2014 and we had a little celebration.

Kevin completed 25 years with LB on 27th May 2014 and we had a little celebration.

"Kevin Affonso, National Films Head completed 25 years with Leo Burnett India yesterday. Here's a glimpse of the celebration we had to commemorate this milestone and to thank him for his contribution to the agency. Rock on Kevin!"

Here's what Kevin has to say about his looong tenure here:

When I joined Chaitra Advertising on 26th May 1989, never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would spend half my life at this agency. What a wonderful journey from Chaitra Advertising to Chaitra Leo Burnett & finally to Leo Burnett. It has been a truly wonderful experience working with so many talented people with whom I had the opportunity to work closely with and from whom I have learnt a lot during these 25 years. I guess the main reason for me staying here for this long has been…”The People” or may I say the LB family. I would like to thank all who I have walked and worked with through these 25 years.

Cannes

Cannes

A trip to Cannes is what every particle and even sub-particle existing in the advertising world dreams of. And being an agency with such rich creative culture, we wanted our people to experience it first-hand.
That is why ‘CANnes You’ came into being. An opportunity to give our finest performers a chance to live their most fabled dream - be at the Cannes festival!
The first such pilgrimage to the Lions is scheduled this June, as the largest contingent of people from across will be travelling to where the whole advertising fraternity is wowing at.
Envious? Then Burnetters, all you need to do is qualify for any of these three criteria: Become 'Employee of the Year', Win at Cannes this year or Score three 7+ on your brand/s. And you could hobnob with the stars you’ve idolised for so long!
