INK PPT Case Study: Nissan Magnite Launch

BIG. BOLD. BEAUTIFUL

Due to the pandemic and the urge of standing out, brands are trying their hands at unusual tactics as the world has turned virtual. At the same time, a handful of brands are doing things differently while keeping the portrayal modest and simpler.

Nissan came out as one of them, The Global Unveil of Nissan Magnite was happening for the 1st time in India, the stakes remained high throughout. We worked around the product strategy of BIG. BOLD. BEAUTIFUL. and delivered a near-live experience for the global virtual audience waiting to see this car go LIVE.

While all the other brands were busy creating virtual gimmicks, 3D flying objects on the screen, Nissan had a very different perspective to advocate the fact that they are BOLD and ready to take on new challenges for their customers and the world will be back to normal soon.

INK PPT perfected more than 100 slides within 15 days that involved the 3 members in total. The small and efficient team worked on synchronizing every slide according to the background audio and speakers' timing. Also, subtle animation kept ongoing simultaneously. Adding to the excellence, the whole rendering got completed in the 4K Video Quality for every slide which later went into post-production to completely stitch the show seamlessly.

A simplistic event turned out to be a grand one and never made the audience realize that they are not even present physically to witness the global unveil in India.

Driving Nextgen Mobility

ANAND decided to participate in the Auto Expo event and required a fresh theme, a different narrative that falls in line with their future commitment to safer products, the rise of e-mobility, industrial shift to BS6 vehicles and competitiveness in the market.

Developing the theme

INK PPT developed 10+ themes for ANAND Auto Expo 2020 which aligns with their core philosophy and helps them set apart amongst the automotive component supplier ecosystem. These themes were centred on the values of the company and also towards the Auto Expo 2020. Developing numerous themes opened many narratives in terms of design exploration for the client.

Rolling out Visuals

A stall visual language was created by us and also the poster creatives for every other wall and the zones for the event. Other than this, we also cracked the visual concepts for engagement zones. As we developed the themes for ANAND, an e-invite was conceptualized and made from scratch for inviting the visitors to the stall.

Smart Touchscreen Catalogs

We created multiple touchscreen presentations for capturing product information and more than 20 Smart touchscreen digital product catalogues were prepared to carry every product detail and the video. It was prepared using powerpoint and was loaded in the ipads to be deployed onsite for immediate accessibility and experience. The Smart catalogues were also supported by quick QR codes to provide instant access to the downloadable marketing material to the stall visitors.

A lot of e-marketing posters, flyers and brochures were developed to be available for instant download. The promotion of digital expression of the brand was emphasized to minimize the carbon footprints and to support the industry shift to a greener automotive future. This resulted in greater engagement and also an environment-friendly approach being polished.

ANAND Brand Guidelines

Adding Consistency to the Brand ANAND

ANAND Group is an Automotive Ancillary conglomerate, with headquarters in Delhi, India. It manufactures as well as supplies automotive systems and components. The history of ANAND dates back to 1961 with its flagship company, Gabriel set up in collaboration with Maremont Corporation.

ANAND has numerous touchpoints linked to its internal and external arrangements like co-branding, digital, print, stationery, advertisements, product packaging and much more. Due to these applications, their brand identity got used differently by every stakeholder, leaving the consistency of brand identity somewhere behind. To provide uniformity to ANAND, a unified brand guideline & design system was to be developed for 18 group companies with cumulatively more than 6000 employees.

Defining Brand Identity

As their internal branding got distorted due to multiple partners and diversified usage, we started from scratch in benchmarking every aspect including, the angle of inclination for the letters in the logo, coming up with the brand colour swatches, defining the minimum and maximum size limits, infographic-style usage and much more. The logo of the brand evolved over the years so we also defined a brand meaning going with the values of the company.

Standardization Brand Stationary and Touchpoints

The brand of a company revolves around many aspects. With time, several different variants of business cards, letterheads and other strategic stationery elements got developed. Items like notepads had varied logos due to the lack of brand guidelines. We standardized the complete stationery and defined the appropriate colour, size, fabrication material to be used and also, logo proportion concerning the size of the item.

Simplifying
Co-branding

When a brand gets associated with several group companies, government bodies, internal brands, customers the logos are used together as a part of co-branding. This practice results in varied usage of the brand assets. We came up with the group company logo grid along with the co-branding merchandise that included logo-orientation horizontally, vertically, and diagonally for consistent brand usage across the internal and external events, partner meets and announcements.

Streamlining Internal Communication

The abundance of collaterals related to advertisements, brand posters, event certificates, employee lanyards, brand standees, Table podiums, invitation cards, product labels, branding panels are derived regularly displaying the brand identity. We came up with hard precision on every aspect like font size, spacing, texturing, colours, shapes etc. to deliver the much-required, explicit guidelines to the brand.

Photography Guide, Merchandise and Uniform

Endless photographs of the top management, employees, plant setup, operational activities are being clicked, requiring consistency in the language, tone of voice, styling, camera angle, positions and actions of the subject or object into consideration. We developed the guidelines for that and also for the brand merchandise, newsletter, uniform of the employees (to the level of defining colours, accessories, material and made).

Unifying External Touch Points

Once the internal branding got covered, we moved ahead with the external branding that included, bus branding, print ads, podiums, signages etc. Exhibiting a consistent brand language to be implemented all over ANAND has helped the company to communicate uniformly and precisely.
