An award program initiated by Sanmarg Hindi Daily, Aparajita is a celebration of fine
talent, character and uniqueness, embodied by the women of today.
Our theme for Aparajita 2019 drew inspiration from rivers. Text was composed, drawing parallels between women and rivers. A set of patterns were also developed to show the different characteristics of a rivers movement. Blue was introduced as a new colour to the existing palette of red and white.
New year greetings were sent out in the form of a gullak (piggy bank) along with some writing material - encouraging our audience to pen down their dreams and store it carefully in this earthen pot, till it translates into reality.
An interactive invite was sent out for the ‘Save the Date’, consisting of 3 frames to capture what makes one feel Calm, Fierce or Unstoppable. Properties associated with a moving river and women.
The final invitation for the event captured the many facets of an Aparajita, culminating in the message: Hamesha Aparajita.
This journal was a special takeaway gift: 365 questions to be answered over the course of a 5-year journey.
The brief for the creative direction for this shoot was clear: to clearly represent each nominee - real-life heroes, inspiring dreams of those to come.
