MUMBAI, INDIA — OMD, the world’s largest media agency network, part of the Omnicom Media Group, has won the media mandate for SUGAR Cosmetics following a competitive pitch. This partnership between the two brands will see OMD India handle the end-to-end media strategy for the leading cosmetic brand from the agency’s office in Mumbai.
Today’s new-age challenger brands need a strategic partner that embraces a future-ready challenger mindset. OMD India’s position as an audacious challenger agency in the country enables them to have a deep understanding of the fast-growing beauty space – an aspect that was key to clinching the win.
