"The content we consume has moved beyond one screen many years ago and this innovation of multi-screen content streaming from one device is a product idea whose time has come. The opportunity to create digital-first content for a multi-screen content experience product is huge, and my team is really excited with this win," says Kumar, in a press release.

Elaborating on JWT's mandate, Kumar adds, "Our creative ambition is to amplify this concept and deliver insightful communication for Lukup Media and ensure that we partner the success story of the brand from the start-up to the finish line."

JWT will comprehensively handle the ATL (above-the-line) mandate of Lukup Media, and work towards creating campaigns that will help form an emotional connect and brand recall among consumers. JWT's expertise will come highly handy in standardising consumer touch points with consistency in terms of tone and language.
