This is to acknowledge AVDS’s immense contribution towards our company. They started working with the BOP Group at a stage where the company was only starting to take shape, and their role in its brand building as well as project marketing has been substantial. The biggest advantage of working with AVDS and its very talented team is their flexible and enveloping approach towards balancing their own creative output and the specific needs of their client. AVDS’s interpretation of a client brief viz-a-viz the eventual output is seldom off the mark, and I greatly appreciate their focus towards maintaining brand sanctity.
I started working with AVDS in 2007, and my impression about them and their quality of work has only gone up in this duration. Their delivery timelines are amazing, and their acceptance of client feedback, whether positive or negative, is laudable. Also, their strategic inputs on overall brand direction is of great help especially for a fledgling company such as BOP. I hope to work with AVDS for a very long time, and wish them all the best towards a very bright and prosperous future in the creative world.
Sumit Ghosh | Vice President – Marketing
AVDS came highly recommended and I would endorse that recommendation 100%. We have been extremely pleased with all aspects of the design work they completed for us.
Diana Hogbin-Mills | Managing Director
AVDS impressed us immensely with their brilliant and creative ideas in developing our company logo and corporate identity design and we did not have to think twice before entrusting to them the design of our website also. We look forward to working with AVDS again in future for a lot many projects.

We at Spice World are firm believers in excellence through constant innovation and consistent performance. We have truly met our match with AVDS. The entire team is in sync with our vision and expectations so much so that they are very much a part of our own team and not an external agency at all. For a large set up like ours which involves the entertainment business, the biggest challenge for the creative agency was to be available 24X7 and to be capable of reaching out to a huge and varied target group which is literally 8-88 yrs belonging to varied socio-economic backgrounds. AVDS is constantly coming up with out-of-the-box and very creative ideas which connect us to our customers instantly. Everyone at AVDS is very hands-on and has a vast exposure to all the relevant techniques and latest developments in the advertising and communications Industry. We could sum up our relationship by saying that we are in safe and experienced hands for managing our creative needs.
Mridul Misra | Head - Marketing & Communications
AVDS is a rarity in today's fast paced, hectic world, a sense of creative calm in a busy world. I really appreciate the team’s great eye for detail. They care, take the time to listen, understand what your business is about and then set about creating something truly unique that reflects the real spirit. They have a wonderful ability to interpret the essence of what it is that you are seeking to create, with the finished product always exceeding your initial vision. I have been totally delighted with everything that the team has designed for our organization to date and look forward to a long and continued association with them.

This little poem is a feeble attempt to comprehend the phenomenon called AVDS.
Some people bitch while others ditch. Some are late and some procrastinate. There are many who're bereft of imagination. And there's no shortage of experts at evasion.
I've met lots of guys who can't spell for nuts. Most are skilled in purveying 'Ifs' and 'Buts'. Plenty who're blessed with a flea's IQ. And several who can't mind their 'P's' and 'Q's'.
Thank goodness for men who sweat and toil. Imagineer and burn the midnight oil. Never seeking praise or approbation. They're the backbone of our nation.
They push the envelope right Out of the Box. Whose solutions blow you clean outta your sox. Who master the minutiae, realise a dream. They're the créme de la créme de la cream!
Subroto Mukerji | Chief Editor Holy Faith International
I want to place on record my utmost satisfaction with the design process; the execution is rated at 8/10! You get 11/10 on design and client satisfaction so on average the score is 9/10... pretty good! We can never get 10/10 in creative work... we must always feel we could have done a bit better!
Architech Vistasp & Associates
We have been working with AVDS for about three years now and sincerely value their creative abilities. What truly differentiates the team's work in corporate and brand communication is the quality of their ideas, their discipline of meeting the tightest deadlines and their ability to develop communication solutions while thinking ‘like a client'.
Sushil Bhasin | Assistant Vice President - Marketing
Team AVDS are creative genius and thorough professionals. Their timeliness, diligent work and thorough understanding of the industry has helped me to get the best from them. The team gets out every thought through brilliant campaigns! I wish Team AVDS luck in all their future endeavours.
Gunjan Aggarwal, Founder
AVDS is not just a design agency but a true strategic partner who aligns with your business objectives to drive ideation and execution. Their experience in brand and marketing really make them an extended marketing team for us. I have worked with many agencies, but very few make your problem as their own and action on it. Innovation, creativity and customer centricity is what we have been experiencing year after year in this long 6+ years partnership.
Pushkar Bidwai, General Manager - Global Business & Digital
AVDS designed the Mountain Forum for us. We were consistently impressed by their professionalism and their ability to deliver world class products within very demanding deadlines. We were also particularly impressed by the attention to detail which they paid to the task at hand, and also the immense value addition they provided beyond the terms of reference of the task.

AVDS has been working closely with Jaypee Hotels for the last 2.5 years, handling most of our routine creative work. We enjoy working with them. Not only are they extremely talented but wonderfully responsive as well.

AVDS have shown exceptional creative ability and superior execution skills in creating our website, adding a visual dimension to our investment strategy. The unsolicited responses from the international investment community have been awe inspiring.
Vinay Chauhan Manager | Corporate Finance
Avigo Capital Partners
We have worked with AVDS for over three years now. AVDS while being a boutique creative company brings the ideal balance to the table. They have the ideation and execution capabilities of big international agencies and the nimbleness of a small setup. What we admire most about them is their ability to walk in the shoes of the customer and come with solutions that not only stand out of the clutter but deliver results, and all this while being dedicated to our success. Their design thinking capabilities have helped us find a distinct brand voice. I would happily, without a second thought, recommend AVDS to anyone looking for sublime creative solutions.
Premlesh Machama, President APAC,
I highly recommend business decision makers to engage with AVDS in order to create a top of the line website. They not only has an acute understanding of client needs but also offer great insights on how to best express them via their websites. Certainly, in our case, we were up and running well ahead of our timeline and though it has been a while now, continue to get great service support from the company.

I have had the privilege of working with Arun and the team at AVDS for over 10 years and they have consistently raised the bar year after year with brilliant copy and great design. Not a year passed that they didn’t wow us. Arun has been the principal architect of our brand and brand identity and has helped us build one of the most recognised brands in our industry. He has a deep understanding of the client, what makes us tick ...... and has found a way to represent that through the right creative medium. If you are looking for a conventional, color within the lines type of agency, AVDS is not for you. But if you are looking for bold, out-of-the-box, design thinking and copy that totally stands out - there really is no better firm than AVDS. And if you are looking for Long Copy, Arun maybe of the best copywriters in the world.

The entire experience of working with AVDS is characterised by quick response, high accessibility and fantastic output. The high level of involvement of team ensures inputs critical for design improvement. Professional services with a high degree of personal touch! We look forward to a long lasting relationship.
Deekshant Sahrawat | Director
What can be a bigger testimonial than the fact that this is our 12th year of working with AVDS. It takes more than just great creative ideas for an agency to be trusted by a client for so long. AVDS is our design partner of choice. Not only for their quick TATs, or for their on-the-feet-thinking, or their customer-centrist approach, or their solution attitude, but for being friends of Monster.com Very rarely do you come across an agency that takes as much pride in the brand as the client itself. That's AVDS for you. If you want your communication and design thinking to be safe, go for the tried and tested. If you want disruptive, go for AVDS.
AVDS listened, ideated, detailed and delivered our brand pan India as we launched the new education paradigm "When I grow up I want to be me" @ Global discovery schools.
Our Kellogg MBA founding team enjoyed an exciting brand creation journey with AVDS (a journey as intellectually stimulating & fulfilling as when we were students in Kellogg Northwestern business school Chicago.)
Game changing businesses are built on truthfully walking the talk / living the dream / eating owns dog food" .... We all have heard all this many times but adhering to the same is never easy when execution starts and real life reality strikes.
GDA at its inception was evaluating many brand firms and AVDS stood apart from the rest. They had no real competition. Their welcome, their office, their culture, unique bunch of people - a cult, deliverables, commitment to quality, relentless hunt for a breakthrough, method of engagement, responsiveness, professional ethics, dispute resolution, their push back to client to adhere to the core values, their sincerity & honesty to the brand promise - it surprised us how much they are in love with the work and the brand itself, no different than the Kellogg founders.
Equally impressive was how they envisioned how brand will evolve over long term and stay alive, how message will deepen and engage, and how our actions & execution focus should evolve.
At Kellogg we had learnt how to personify a brand as a person. But with AVDS, we learnt how to personify a brand as a revolutionary phenomena to this great extent that it creates a new religion, belief system, loyalty, cult / breeds evangelist customers who talk and celebrate that change everyday as they live their life.
It was a job for Superman. And we are so glad AVDS designed it because I can truly say they did justice to it! AVDS managed to successfully amalgamate the wide variety and gamut of The Family India's projects and programmes into an attractive, inspiring, integrated whole. They even designed a logo for us which we are thrilled with! The AVDS team have proved to be the perfect blend of technical expertise and inspired design sense. They possess a rare intuitive grasp of the client's needs and they know how to translate vision to reality. We couldn't have asked for a better site or for a better team of talented and principled individuals to work with! Hats off to you guys! Creativity is a gift. I thank God that He has blessed AVDS with megadoses of it. We look forward to working with them on many more projects.
