Mumbai’s Thinker-Doer bootcamp redefines creative boundaries

MUMBAI, INDIA — The program is a transformative learning experience to turn designers into swiss-army-knife creatives and realize their full creative potential.

There’s always been a subtle bias in how teams are organized in the agency business. Cracking “big ideas” is typically designated as the copywriter’s job and the idea’s execution is where the designer’s (only) job begins and ends. Over time, this has led to designers in the industry focusing solely on the craft and missing out on the essential skill-building required to conceptualize and lead campaigns end-to-end.

This two-week boot camp offers a unique opportunity for six selected designers with one to four years of experience, to expand their creative horizons beyond their primary skill sets. With the guidance of globally renowned creatives, planners, and suits, participants will gain insights into various aspects of creativity, including development, ideation, self-evaluation, and presentation skills. All culminating in a capstone project.


Meghana Bhat, Ex-NCD, Webchutney, and Binaifer Dulani, Founding Member & Creative, Talented are the Program Directors for the first cohort of the program. They said, “Thinker-doer was born from the idea that imposter syndrome is best tackled not by looking into a mirror and speaking affirmations but by imparting education and creating opportunity. It is a meaningful step towards protecting the talent within the advertising industry by seriously investing in developing that talent. Creatives in the design discipline excel at their craft, but often, their execution magic also limits the opportunities that come their way. At the heart of every creative, is an ideas person, who, if nudged in the right direction, can conceptualize the next era of advertising, and not just execute someone else’s vision. Thinker-doer aims to help every member of its first cohort to internalize this larger role and self image.”

The foundational program runs from March 4 to March 15, at Talented Agency’s headquarters in Church Street, Bengaluru, furthering the agency’s commitment to equity, inclusion, and talent development in the Indian advertising industry.
