A new way of brand-telling and establishing a connection with consumers
As society becomes increasingly mechanized and monochromatic, the desire to explore and express ourselves through color becomes stronger. This is particularly evident in the art world, where illustrations are becoming increasingly popular for Indian brands. These brands use illustrations to effectively communicate their message and stand out in a sea of sameness. Whether for branding or creative expression, illustrations are a powerful tool that can add depth and character to any project.

Aretto is a D2C kids’ footwear brand that launched in 2022 and offers high-quality, comfortable footwear for kids that grow with their feet up to 3 sizes.

Greater Than is the “people’s gin” – an equaliser that brings together people from all age groups, genders, cultures, and communities. To celebrate this mission, they enlisted the help of five of India’s best contemporary artists to create an illustration inspired by William
Hogarth’s iconic “Gin Lane” piece, 271 years later. Illustrated here is a happy day for those who chose love over hate, equality over discrimination, and stand by their choices when it is the toughest to do so. A day when many are on the streets to celebrate a new beginning, where they are once again free to choose who to love, what to eat, and how to live, all with their favourite drink.
