What a cliche it is to start a topic like this,

by talking about how globalized and industrialized Bangalore is,

and hence how acutely advertising and marketing solutions are needed,

by the companies to emerge from the competition, deep seeded, 

And in changing times, to keep their image steady,

But anyway, I guess we cliched ourselves already. 

Bangalore – the buzzzzz

Now which city is called Garden city, Pub city, Silicon Valley of India, Pensioners paradise, Space city, Electronic city and Kollyood land? Yes, it is just one city. And yes, with so many sobriquets that one could even call it a sobriquet city.

The answer my dears, is none other than Bangalore city! The city of tree greens and high rise buildings’ sheens!

Many of these agencies have bagged prestigious projects and awards sometimes even from the mouth of bigger ad agencies.
