Lowe Lintas Chennai has won the creative mandate of TI Cycles, one of the oldest and renowned Indian brands of cycles. The agency would be handling the creative mandate for popular brands including BSA, Hercules & Montra.

Lowe Lintas brings proven strategic and integrated marketing expertise that will help us build a strong communications platform to deliver innovative creative work that will resonate with our customers and help us stand apart in the rapidly evolving marketplace.”
The immediate task for Lowe Lintas Chennai would be to provide a fresh impetus for BSA Ladybird, a cycle that’s been a favourite of the young female populace that own it. GV Krishnan, President, Lowe Lintas Bangalore said, “We are delighted to have been appointed as brand custodians by Chennai-based TI Cycles. Our immediate effort will be to give fresh impetus and emotional depth to BSA Ladybird, a cycle synonymous with the joy of growing-up years. Today’s tweens and teens are a huge consumer constituency and are unique in many ways. It will be a great experience to create communication that will appeal to this consumer segment.”
Adding further he said, “Soon we will also work on other TI Cycles assets such as BSA Workouts and Track & Trail.”
Sharing his views on the new project, Rajesh Ramaswamy, ECD, Lowe Lintas said: “Cycles were a not so cool thing some years back. Now cycles are a statement. It’s about being fit. Being environmentally conscious. It talks a lot about the person. His thinking. Unfortunately this is still not being portrayed in communication. It’s not a passing trend. It’s something that’s here to stay. Also even design wise, cycles are much more stylish now. Time we made some ads that are as cool.”
