Together, they have worked on leading clients such as Nestle, Dabur, Unitech, DLF, Godfrey Phillips, Turner (HBO and CNN), Samsung and the India Today Group.

Kapil Dhawan
Dhawan started his career in 1996 at Mudra as a trainee. After a year, he moved to Capital Advertising as copywriter. After a stint of one year there, TBWA happened. He has worked on other brands such as JK Tyres, LG and Spice Telecom.

Chatterjee, on the other hand, began his career with Grey Worldwide, then Trikaya Grey, in 1995. He joined as a trainee. He spent three years at the agency, and stepped out in 1998 as art director. Some of the other businesses that he has worked on are GlaxoSmithKline, Beecham and Bakeman's.

Anjan Roy
Anjan Roy, branch head, VGC, Delhi, says, "It's just a little more than two years since VGC's branch in Delhi was established, and Dhawan and Chatterjee's coming in is at a time when the Delhi branch has performed better than expected. The creative custodianship of all the brands that are handled out of VGC, Delhi, lies in their hands, and they will also produce some work for the Mumbai branch, if required."

VGC is in an expansion mode and is all set to beef up its creative team. Mid and junior level appointments are in the process.
