Ravindranathan says, "My experience at Saatchi & Saatchi was a memorable one. But I have grown to a different level in my mind. I actually wanted something that would provide me a challenge apart from accomplishing my daily goals, which are part of the job. At Fish Eye, in addition to performing my job, I will be a part of the bigger scheme of things, which will involve aggressive participation in the growth of the agency as a whole."

Here he spent a year. Thereafter, he worked with two agencies, O&M, Chennai, and JWT, Bengaluru, both in just a year.

For the last four years, he has been associated with Saatchi & Saatchi, Bengaluru, and worked largely on brands such as TVS Victor, Tata Tea and WorldSpace.
