Winners of Transform Awards India 2022 announced

TA India Winners 2022

Celebrating the transformative power of rebranding and brand development for the first time in India, the Transform Awards India highlighted an array of the highest quality of work. Transform magazine can officially announce the winners of the Transform Awards India 2022, where the very best in corporate, product and global brand design and strategy were revealed.

The star performer on the night, and picking up the highly coveted Grand prix award, was Ting for its project with Melts, a new Oral Thin Strips brand. The new identity and packaging system was hailed by judges as a “clutter-breaking” design which adopted an “extremely smart, creative approach.” Ting collected an additional three gold awards for this project alone in the categories of ‘Best use of packaging’, ‘Best strategic or creative development of a new brand’, and ‘Best naming strategy’. The agency also found success in its projects with Divaa, Doeraa, Skin Pot Co. and OPI India, racking up a further three silvers and two bronzes.

Sweeping up a sensational four golds and Best Overall Visual Identity was Landor & Fitch for its project with Giga Foods. The agency gave the jaded Sri Lankan burger brand market a new lease of life from its joyful branding of Full’r, a new cloud kitchen burger restaurant. Judges were unanimously impressed with the agency’s “inspiring, colourful and energetic” work. The project won big in categories including in ‘Best use of a visual property’, ‘Best creative strategy’, and ‘Best strategic or creative development of a new brand’.

Andrew Thomas, publishing editor of Transform magazine and founder of the transform awards, says, “The challenges of the past year have been immense, as companies of all sizes have worked to mitigate the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. That’s why this year’s Transform Awards winners are incredibly deserving of their recognition. They have championed communications, design and strategic brand development in the most difficult of landscapes and they have achieved great things.”

He adds, “Each and every one of this year’s Transform Awards winners is helping to set the standard for excellence in rebranding and brand development. I’m proud to share the winners of the Transform Awards.”

Other big winners on the night included Landor & Fitch’s project with Apraava Energy, winning golds in ‘Best brand evolution’ and ‘Best brand development project to reflect a change of mission, values or positioning’, along with three silvers and a bronze. Elsewhere, Brandpie earned two golds and a bronze for its work with Tata Consultancy Services.

The winners were announced virtually in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
