The agency's Mumbai office will handle the account.

According to Indranil Chakraborty, chief marketing officer, Mahindra Holidays, the ideal creative partner for the brand is "one that can level up to the unique challenges" facing the business and Law & Kenneth was deemed fit to do just this.

The new word mark is a deep, bright red unlike the previous grey one. Additionally, a very specific graphic element, a 'ridge', was added to the design. This is a sturdy, upward shape that is in sync with Mahindra's 'Rise' philosophy.
