As one of the premium Indian cement brand and the leading Wall Putty brand in India, JKCement has been at the forefront of innovation in its product offerings and marketing communication. It’s marquee brand, JKCement WallMaxX known for its, Deewarein Bol Uthengi tagline has released a new TVC titled, #ArtManeScience with its iconic brand protagonist, Chhutkau painter.
A partnership of over 12 years, Chhutkau painter has been associated with JKCement WallMaxX (formerly known as JK Wall Putty), to educate and bring awareness among painters and home- owners about the promise of beautiful and durable walls. In the new TVC, #ArtManeScience, Chhutkau collaborates with world renowned scientist Dr. Bakshi, to educate the consumers about the A-R-T of Science that gives your walls world’s most long lasting beauty.
The company saw the need to reinforce the brand promise with a tangible diffentiator showcasing the product’s superiority. They realized that now is the time to shift from generalized claim of beautiful walls to specific Reason to Believe (RTB) driven campaign and communication. The inception of the campaign idea came after an Abrasion Resistance Test which was conducted in their state-of-the-art lab. The team found out that the surface coated with JKCement WallMaxX Putty was relatively less effective while an external force of abrasion was applied on it.
In order to test the efficacy of the chosen ‘art mane science’ campaign thought, as also the credibility of the ART mnemonic, the company went in for a pan- India qualitative market research. The larger objective was to also gauge the current perception of both, painters and home- owners, about the product and its current + emerging competitive universe. While the brand’s attributes were already clearly understood by the audiences, what was hugely exciting, was the enthusiasm for ART as a credible brand promise. That sealed the deal for the new campaign idea!
Speaking on the launch of the campaign, Mr. Niranjan Mishra (Business Head, JK White Cement Business) said, “As JKCement WallMaxX enjoys a market leadership position in the Wall Putty category, it become important for us to constantly innovate and give our customers world-class product quality. Abrasion Resistant Technology, is a testimony to our product’s superiority and through #ArtManeScience campaign, we will be able to communicate this unique value proposition.”
Mr. Nitish Chopra (Head – Branding & Strategy, JK White Cement Business) said, “The fact that the idea ART Mane Science, actually stemmed from our product’s value proposition, was compelling enough to translate it into a successful campaign. Obviously, we also had an advantage to leverage the cult- like status of our brand protagonist, Chhutkau Painter, and catch the TA’s top-of-mind space, with the intriguing hook – ‘ART Mane SCIENCE’. But, what was particularly satisfying was the execution of this campaign – from the ART gallery set, to the modern contemporary sound track and the hard work put in by the entire team. It all made the TVC film more compelling and entertaining to watch.”
