Singh will be based in Mumbai, and will report to Pratap Bose.
Marketing communications agency The Social Street, has appointed Deepak Singh as its chief creative officer. He will report to Pratap Bose, founding partner and chairman, The Social Street.
Singh, on his part, says, "I feel advertising now is much more than just TVCs, print and radio. That's why with time, we should change and try to explore bigger things. Bose has a clear vision about his plans for The Social Street and knows why he has hired me. It gives me that much more confidence."
Singh feels that the next generation of advertising is much more than mainline advertising, and that was what attracted him to shift. "I feel I can do more challenging things now. Digital, outdoor, interactive and activation makes advertising much bigger and more interesting. I look forward to doing some great work for The Social Street. My mainline experience will bring new solutions to the problems of clients," he says.
He further adds, "I really enjoyed working with Bose at DDB in the past, and I am very fond of his humble and simple nature and the way he looks at things. I always wanted to work with him in the future, and I am happy he chose me for this position. I know there are a lot of challenges and learning for me, but I think the partnership with The Social Street will add a new dimension to my career."
