It aims to transcend the brand identity from a mainly B2B brand to a B2C brand; rejuvenate the brand just before the monsoon season.
Monsoon in India precedes the brutal summer season. Where summer is known to create physical distances between people, monsoon, on the other hand, is famed for bringing people closer. It is the season of love and romance. Taking a cue from this, Monsoon Wala Love campaign was born.

Relatable, fun, exciting, romantic and stylish the campaign brought the essence of the monsoons out like nothing else could.

Looking up while travelling you may spot the dark looming clouds, but breaking that dreary backdrop is a bright and inviting Top In Town hoarding.
