Carmesi’s Insta campaign

Biodegradable sanitary napkin brand Carmesi has just launched an awareness campaign, The Period Girl, on a rather unusual medium — Instagram stories.

Conceptualised by FCB Ulka, it depicts underprivileged girls on periods, and conveys the message that for women, life shouldn’t stop, when periods start.

The rationale for using Instagram Stories was natural for Carmesi. After all, the brand was built on Instagram. Also, on an average, an Instagrammer spends 25 to 30 minutes tapping on Stories. Carmesi works closely with a group of NGOs on a social initiative called Unified In Red, organising workshops on menstrual health for underprivileged girls.

Nurturing innovation

Dentsu Aegis Network (DAN) India has announced the launch of DAN Innovation Lab, which will be led by Gurbaksh Singh, erstwhile chief creative technologist at Dentsu Webchutney. The facility, designed and built as a collaborative Lab space, brings together key resources and talents from across the DAN brands — Dentsu Webchutney, Isobar India and Posterscope India.

DAN Innovation Lab will work on open data, develop prototypes and intellectual property, build new products and services, engage technology to create differentiated consumer experiences, draw holistic client solutions from cross-functional expertise and in due course, collaborate to execute those solutions, seamlessly.

A letter from the Editor

Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance. Our team has been working round the clock to keep track of developments so that you – the reader – gets accurate information and actionable insights so that you can protect your jobs, businesses, finances and investments.

Our website and apps too, are updated every minute, so that you can access the information you want anywhere, anytime.
