BananaBandy interviews India’s leading Adman, Kiran Khalap!
Kiran Khalap on Advertising & His Journey
Presenting the first episode of our series Design Dialogue! Today we interview one of the most influential men in Branding. A man who has spent the last 32 years of his life in advertising and been a steady rock through the sea of change that has influenced the world of advertising over the past few decades. From his early days as a junior copywriter at Lintas to becoming a creative director and then finally the Chief Creative Officer and Chief Executive Officer of Clarion Advertising, he saw the best and the worst of advertising and emerged on top through it all. Here’s the one and only, Kiran Khalap!
Kiran is now the founder of his own branding consultancy, Chlorophyll. India’s first end-to-end brand consultancy for all your creative needs. He welcomed us in his office one Saturday morning and left us spellbound over the course of the interview with his incredible breadth of knowledge and rich experiences in life. He narrated some awesome incidents involving a vendor selling ‘red ice’ at Chembur Railway station to India’s need for Indian designers to create content based in and inspired from our rich cultural heritage rather than simply aping the west. We present to you the abridged version of the interview in a concise 15 minute video.
