Latest Out-of-Home Campaigns from Milestone Brandcom

Khatron ke Khiladi has some Peeda compiled with Keeda!

This season Khatron ke Khiladi goes spectacular with Arjun Kapoor being the host, and the show being shot in the picturesque location of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The creative expression for this season is Kabhi Peeda, Kabhi Keeda. It communicates the idea of perfect blend of keeda (masti) and peeda (fear), something Arjun is known to be, by his fans - An action stud with a funny bone.


Taking this theme on our mind and heart, the billboards in Mumbai, Delhi and Kanpur purely showcased the fun, action and entertainment of the show. A total of 5 creatives were designed for this campaign. Each of the creative was hand-picked for a particular site to optimally achieve high visibility.The sites were strategically placed to inform the TG effectively.

Interesting innovations were designed and executed to create an impact amongst the masses. These included having spider cut-outs on the billboards crawling on Arjun's hand and electrically charged barb-wire awaiting the contestants on the billboard. The campaigns started from 22nd January, 2016 for a duration of 10 days. Within just 10 days, this campaign grabbed eye-balls and got people talking!


In addition to this, to tap the audience at multiple touch-points, KKK 7 jingles were also played in 8 of the Mumbai metros and 11 trains on the Western line of Mumbai local trains.
Airtel 4G communicates ‘Entertainment’ across!

Airtel 4G with its new Outdoor campaign has successfully reached out to the mass audiences, covering 270 markets, pan India. This new campaign highlights the entertainment factor, talking about the music, movies and game downloads. The campaign communication was simple - focusing on product attributes of Wynk Music app i.e. Unlimited download and Wynk Movie with 5 movies free per month.

The campaign was designed to effectively target the youth aged from 18 to 24 and data users from 24 to 44 urban male and females. Media vehicles on key arterial routes were selected to create awareness of the Wynk app features and consequently create an impact for the brand Airtel 4G.


The campaign started from 18th January, for a duration of 2 weeks. The campaign sends out a clear message on OOH of Airtel being the best network for your smartphone, thereby driving additional users to connect with the best smartphone network!
Garnier focuses on double benefit!

Garnier comes up with yet another out-of-home campaign. This time with Double Action and Double Benefit! Garnier started the new year with a bang, taking onto OOH with high density for launching its new facewash that fights spots and gives instant whitening, 'Garnier's White Complexion Double Action' facewash. Also, it has a simple yet effective way to reduce marks and improve your look ‘double’ times!


This campaign was designed and executed by Milestone Brandcom, starting from 2nd January for a duration of 15 days. This campaign largely targeted youth and covered the 4 top metros along with 2 tier cities. The creatives were clean with yellow and white as a major component of the colour scheme, showcasing both the product benefits along with the product itself. 3D sculptures of Garnier Face Wash tubes were placed on bus shelters at various sites, keeping in mind the key arterial routes in order to garner more visibility towards attractive innovations that created an impact for both, the product and the brand. This innovation was taken across on billboards as well. At night, the creatives lit up making the sites almost un-missable! A visibility that doubled with time on bus shelters, billboard and hoarding with right placement.
NESCAFE offers free Britannia Nutrichoice biscuits with its coffee jar!

Coffee time goes best with biscuits and other such knick knacks to munch on. In the bid to leverage this habit further, Nescafe recently came out with a new promotional campaign to boost its coffee sales - Free Britannia Nutrichoice biscuits with every jar of Yummy Nescafe Coffee!

A large OOH campaign was designed and executed to amplify this promotional campaign and create a buzz amongst the target group, who are usually on the lookout for freebies and are delighted to get one! The target group for Nescafe was largely women, especially housewives, and coffee lovers in general, especially youngsters.

Keeping the TG in mind, Nescafe communicated this offer across the country for 10 days in 11 towns consisting of 3 metros and 8 tier - 1 & 2 towns. The campaign started on 21st January, 2016. Billboards and bus shelters were strategically used in areas where the visibility is not only high but areas hoarded with our target group. These areas included locations around housing societies and residential areas, malls, multiplexes and key arterial routes through which the target audience travelled. The campaign resulted in people not only buying Nescafe but also consuming it with Nutrichoice biscuits! 
L’Oreal colours in Excellence!

In an age when aesthetics play one of the most important parts in one's personality, L’Oreal has struck just the right cord by delivering an 'Excellence' campaign. The theme of the campaign revolving around the 'Legends collection', showcases the vivacious legend of the Bollywood film industry, Nargis, and the brand ambassador of Loreal, Aishwariya Rai Bachchan, as an inspiration for the creation of the Excellence range of hair colours. The campaign simple and crisp copy, 'Richest Care for Richest Colour', effectively communicates about the positioning of L'Oreal in the quality space.

The campaign duration was for a period of 15 days. It was executed in 4 top metros, starting from 1st January, 2016. The placement was done strategically in these metros in order to create an impact for the brand L’oreal Excellence hair colour amongst the target group!
Siya Ke Ram brings alive the ‘Dhanush Yatra’ for many!

Siya Ke Ram is a mythological show telecast on Star Plus. We all have seen Ramayan ‘N’ number of times since we were kids, but the unique thing about Siya Ke Ram is that, it is from the perspective of Siya (Sita). While all other Ramayan series were from a very linear and from a third person perspective, this show is a notch higher by giving us a different perspective to it.

Our objective was to promote the Swayamvar Week from 18th – 23rd January, 2016 in key markets of UP, Punjab and Gujarat. In addition to that we wanted to create an unforgettable experience for target audience through a highly engaging activity to ensure highest viewer-ship and TRPs during the 'Swayamvar' week.


The idea was simple - To have an experience. It was to give people a Dhanush Yatra. The ‘Har’ Dhanu of Parashuram was the key instrument in Sita’s wedding. Whoever could’ve had lifted the Dhanush and was able to put the string on it was to be married to Sita. Therefore, we decided to undertake a ‘Dhanush Yatra’ to bring alive its importance while giving our TG an unforgettable experience and also communicating, alongside, the airing dates for the Swayamvar.


To execute our idea, we branded a van with Dhanush mounted on it, and took it to 107 cities. With emcee interactions, showcasing the 'Swayamvar' promos on an LED screen followed by quiz, interesting games like 'bow & arrow', 'finding ‘Siya Ke Ram’ engraved in rice', were played. An out-of-the-box experience of ‘Digital Dhanush Darshan’ in 3D through Virtual Reality was delivered.

We directly engaged with over 53000+ people across 107 towns in 3 states over 15 days. Online and social media buzz was created with over 89 million impressions.
Bournville gives another reason to have chocolates to its consumers

In this hectic corporate world, everyone deserves their best and Mondelez India positions its Cadbury Bournville, the dark chocolate brand as the best thing to eat. Mondelez India has re-positioned its dark chocolate as an unwinding partner and launched a fresh marketing campaign to promote new pack design and new positioning communication.


The outdoor campaign ran in 3 metro cities i.e. Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore. The campaign was deployed on the media touch-points like mall facades, billboards, bus-shelters, and office complexs of high-end and large footfall locations. At prominent locations of cities, interesting innovations were executed to highlight the creative and break the OOH clutter.

Snickers capitalizes on the theme ‘Hunger’ with current affairs

Snickers launched a 360 degree campaign talking about Odd & Even Car formula including OOH medium and on-ground for 5 days of duration in Delhi. The brand wanted to bring alive its proposition "You are not you when you're hungry" and connect with the Target Group by leveraging the scale and popularity of a topical event. They wanted to reach and creatively engage with their audiences which are masses and Youth & Office goers especially in Delhi, an important market for the brand.


An on-ground activity was conducted as part of the campaign. People who were driving an even car on an odd day were given Snickers chocolate to satisfy their 'hunger' so that they could come back to acting like their normal selves and not make the mistake of flouting the odd-even rule unintentionally due to hunger.

Primarily traditional media was exploited for the campaign showcasing the chocolate product with a message saying "you are not you when you're hungry".
