"Isn't it a sad truth that the most competent agencies also tend to have a chip on their shoulders, and the ones who are so pleasant to speak with normally come up with sub-standard output? In Clayground, I have found a perfect blend of competence and chemistry.
The sort of work that has been done by Clayground on the Elements Wellness personal care range compares with some of the best output I have got from my other design agency that is headquartered in another continent. I believe that the fabulous-looking packaging is one of the main reasons these brands have found popularity amongst over a million customers in just under one year.
The other reason that makes me committed to partnering with Clayground is the quality of interactions with the team. Vandana and her team of young men and women are a pleasure to deal with. They take all the multiple iterations in their stride, with a smile, and have yet to miss a deadline.
I fondly remember my visits to the GK office where all action would begin with nice home made lunch that I would have with the entire team (being a client, I had the privilege of not getting my own lunch to share!)
One of my colleagues once told me that the fees are slightly on the higher side. It depends on whether one views packaging design costs as an expense or an investment. It has certainly been a worthwhile investment for me! Good luck, Vandana, to you and the team. I may not be your biggest client, but I always feel special when I interact with every single person at Clayground."
"One of the things that stands out about our association with Clayground as our communications partner, is their strong creative approach, based on sound strategic inputs. The energetic and enthusiastic team never hesitates to go the extra mile. Their problem-solving attitude has made many a complex job smoother. Claygroud as integrity and efficiency is refreshing and they proved to be a very good support to our Marketing team by providing effective communication solutions for activities at all levels."
"We have signed on Clayground for the second year running and I can describe the relationship in one word as fruitful. In Clayground, we have found a strong creative partner with an equally strong result-oriented approach. They constantly push to question the status quo and have delivered many successful campaigns for us. Noteworthy among them are on Another Day at Apollo' & the OPD campaigns. We are happy to continue working with Clayground and hope to achieve great things together."
"Design isn't just design, it is a much deeper science and more importantly, a meeting of two teams. Clayground and Vandana have this ability to become one with our team, even though we work remotely (We are in Pune, they are in Delhi).
They understand the company, the brand, our values and each of our requirements. They understand our ideas, fuse them with their own, refine them with great elegance and execute them to perfection.
In Clayground we have found a design and branding partner that we can always rely on for great work and quick results."
"I was introduced to Clayground by a personal recommendation. The task briefed to Ms. Vandana and the team was to develop new packaging for Black Knight, a male grooming brand which needed to be re-launched with a contemporary look and feel appealing to the youth. As part of her foresight she insisted that strategy and positioning should be looked at first and the packaging can be developed as a result of its manifestation. She also offered to develop communication for key product categories that needed market penetration if the brand was to do well and make a dent among competition.
From the time the presentation began, it was quite evident that the Clayground team had put in a lot of thought and hard work in gaining knowledge of the local market, consumer and other nuances. The packaging concepts presented by Clayground were tested with other concepts and were unequivocally selected and ranked the highest by the target audience.
It was a pleasure working with Vandana on this project and I wish her and Clayground all the very best."
"We had engaged Clayground Communications in February 2014 as our creative agency to support marketing and branding activities for our chain of Dental Clinics & Dental Spas across India.
That's when our brand had taken the giant leap in establishing footprints in many new cities. There were many Clinic launches which required internal branding, external branding and a series of ad campaigns. Clayground's Creative Head - Vandana Katoch and her team were extremely helpful in getting us creatives for these. Each of the creatives done by them was a class apart!
Post the launch phase, we continued to work with them on Brand Recall activities. The agency suggested to us many campaigns which have helped us in exposing our brand to a larger audience.
The Clayground team is very good in identifying and giving positioning strategy, which has helped us reach the right TG, and differentiate our Clinics and Spa vertical.
Every member of their team is so enthusiastic and deeply involved in micro detailing that the team at Apollo WHITE dental has never felt that it's working with an external agency.
It's been more than two and half years now since we started working with Clayground and we look forward to continue working with them for a mutually beneficial business relationship."
"Clayground is a very agile, creative solution provider. Our engagement with them yielded a well-rounded brand architecture, which was then rendered astutely into corporate brand logo design, corporate branding options as well as some wonderful advertising for them."
"The Clayground Team brought in the creativeness to come up with a great marketing strategy for our product. We are extremely thankful to the whole team for delivering great ideas with designs to complement our brand and our thinking. We appreciate all the hard work put in by Clayground."
"It has been a pleasure working with Vandana and other members of Clayground for our Ludhiana project. The team is very professional in their approach and also efficient in meeting with most deadlines. Moreover, I found the team to be very innovative in their approach, as Thinking out of the Boxing and creating some very exciting themes and creatives. I hope that Clayground will continue with the same zeal and energy, which will enable it to achieve great heights."
