We completely believe in SDA as our Brand consultants rather than a creative agency that we are in contract with. Through the years of working with them, we have established that any concerns about how we should carry out our business to benefit us as well as the customers we serve; they have a solution to present. Creativity goes further than just good designs; it expects one to have the ability to figure a path that was unseen or a perspective that needed attention. Understanding its crucial nature, helps to solve problems and devise new techniques to win over a loss. SDA is an agency that is fitting to be a brand consultant agency with the potential to ideate and execute the great work and ideas that they suggest. That is one of the main reasons we are in connect with SDA. Every area whether it was the social platform, creatives for out of home media, web designing, etc were handled extremely well. We would like to thank the team for your hard work and consistent creative thoughts that have been instrumental to uplift the company's status and make a difference in peoples' lives. We are grateful to Amita and Manasvita from the social media team, Bhumika for writing heartfelt content, Jagrut from the graphic designing team, Monali who has been an exceptional mediator, Ashraf and Gaurav from the web team. Your work has made a lasting impact on peoples’ hearts. They might not know it but, we believe your abilities have touched and moved people all over to come for pilgrimages and witness God's presence.

It has been a pleasant journey with SDA and being assisted by them for our artwork. They provide work that speaks volumes of their capabilities.

Her follow up and response time is great. Rekha and Sanju from your team have duly helped us and made worthy suggestions when required for our company events, etc. Even though our industry is entirely different from the usual clients you might get, SDA has shown keen interest through research to provide beneficial solutions for Shivagrico.

During events or otherwise he has strategically placed and positioned creatives to gather attention on our website.

Thank you, SDA for you posses potential that is worthy and wish you success for the future.

“The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.� - Jimmy Johnson That little extra is what SDA is made of. Impeccable designs and creative thought harbors in that agency. The execution and conceptualizing has been carried out by them for Aishwarya for years now and they never fail to impress us. Though the rigorous process exists in design, they come out with flying colors. For which Monali and Jagrut have to be commended. A sought after quality in any industry. We are proud to associate with SDA, an intelligent creative team that strives for the growth of our brand.

We worked with SDA to revamp our website & our experience with SDA has been amazing. The team at SDA is a perfect mix of aesthetic and artistic. One of the qualities we always appreciate is their willingness to meet our needs – both creative and budgetary. The team Rekha & Sanju are always a pleasure to work with. Also, we would like to thank Shruti and Jagrut from the graphic team, Bhumika from copywriting, Amita and Manasvita from the SMM team. From the web team, we would like to thank Ashraf. Overall, we are glad to have encountered with this team that has exhibited great ideas and work all in the benefit of the brand they undertake.

I am more than willing to share my experiences with SDA. I may not be used to voicing my opinion about reputed companies of Mumbai but my experience so far requires me to compliment their work. Since we are in industrial manufacturing, my language says 3-C experience. Convenience, Clarity and Completeness. We just recently did a website project to improve the look and feel of our website. From the team, Rekha and Sanju were our contact persons, all decisions were documented on email by end of day, meetings at SDA had cross-functional team available & well prepared. Our brochure designed by Pratik who absolutely considered and incorporated our specific requirements. There has been Completeness in the discussions, Timeliness of work using Great Technology & Creative Skills. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with such professional attributes. It is rare that we within organizations have the opportunity of working with creative agencies that are so goal oriented for the client and themselves and clearly SDA is one of the few. Good wishes and Good luck to Team SDA "


We at Children's Hospital Mumbai would like to take this opportunity to show our appreciation for the many efforts made by the SDA team over the last two years. They took it as a responsibility to devise response provoking solutions for the benefit of our online campaigns and provided solutions that would result in an increase of our scope to become and remain a successful brand. Their unique methods and suggestions have granted us the title of being a trusted brand in child care. Their management of our Search Engi ne Opti mization (SEO) a nd Social Med ia Marketing (SMM) has helped us achieve a wide base of clientele. With the help and work of SDA, we have been able to firmly establish trust in the minds of our patients with our in-house creatives and Facebook posts. Credit must be given where it is due and we are extremely pleased that our brand is guided by individuals with creative perspectives - Gaurav, Bhumika, Amita, Manasvita, Pratik, Shruti, Jagrut and Monali.

I worked with SDA for more than a year for the fulfilment of various creative requirements and I confirm it was a great experience. Technical understandings reside in a few minds and rarely do individuals and companies from outside of that technical industry are seen to possess that kind of acceptance and interest for it. Creating artwork for that industry is another matter. However, we are undoubtedly pleased with SDA for they seem to have hit the bull's eye. Their team has never failed to live up to expectations and ever willing to make amendments when needed. This portrays a spirit that positively accepts criticisms and works towards its betterment. From the SDA team, we would like to congratulate the efforts of Julius, who is outstanding with his creative and turnout time is simply amazing. He is knowledgeable, creative, and innovative with delivering our requirement exactly as described. Along with the graphic designer, Shruti whose great knowledge and sense of design is impressive. And Hazel, for her content that precisely conveys our purpose and thought. Well Done, Team SDA!!!

Buzziatives The Powerpuff girls are back! Amita, Bhumika and Manasvita – OUR POWERPUFF GIRLS shared a short video on the 3rd of September that preached a lesson worthy enough to live by. So, how many times have you gone through life wondering why you didn't seize the moment? What holds us back from trying or from experimenting is our mind. The little doubt and fear that has the audacity to change the mind to think like a failure has been awarded extra favor by us by our very own will. The realization of this truth dawned on SDA as the hard hitting motivating spirit took over. In the form of our three Powerpuff girls, the spirit spoke aloud. It caused the slumbering spirit to shiver within us. They awakened our understanding to head in the direction of our calling. To quote our girls, 'For starters allow a dream to envelop you, gracefully accept the mistakes along the way and prepare to embrace success someday, till the end of time thanking our spirit for no regrets. This is pretty much it!' We feel incredibly lucky to have the Powerpuff girls in our midst for providing a revelation. The fire you bring to the SDA community is positively contagious.

Monali did an exceptional job to customize the logo with her doodle art. As per the plan, each had to pick a chit and the person whose name was announced had to choose a brown paper bag that held the newsletter. This activity had a backhand scheme, Mr. Shiraz announced that there was some surprise in 3 of the copies. Manasvita, Mrs. Rekha and Saeed were the lucky ones who finally found the treasure i.e. Lunch vouchers for Sigree Restaurant. A fancy place to dine in style.

Because the Thought counts


SDA had a thought to convey this Diwali. The means were our decorations and silent celebrations as we prepared for the festival of lights. A matchbox and matchstick is the most commonly used item to light a diya or a firecracker especially during Diwali. Our decoration was focused on the use of this medium that ignited light. The twist was to influence people to use its capability for better purposes. One that would truly depict in action the victory of light over darkness and its dim ways. Using a medium that is unmissable to place a message filled creative. To impact minds, make them think of their actions - Does bursting crackers qualify an appropriate method to celebrate the victory of light over the dark? Firecrackers are a temporary entertainment that causes permanent damage. A billion dollars and more are invested in firecrackers by 800 million people. As a consequence of these firecrackers, hundreds and thousands of people have become victims of blindness, deafness and skin related problems. During a joyous occasion such as Diwali, SDA suggests seeking alternative methods to celebrating Diwali. Everyone deserves to experience light in life, whether as a consequence of their own actions or others. SDA wishes that we make light filled choices that add light to life.

#Share YourEars Sometimes it just so happens that social media is treated as a medium where nothing serious happens. This stereotypical thought makes it difficult for any brand to successfully break through the clutter. But, not everything can be turned in to a meme or can be fake or taken lightly as a sarcastic comment. In fact there are companies like Disney & Make-A-Wish ÂŽ's whose team work granted more than 100,000 wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. On Disneyland's 60th Anniversary, fans were invited to share images of Mickey Mouse Ears, or any creative ears at all to help grant wishes. By using the Share Your Ears photo frame on Facebook and sharing your photos with the hashtag #ShareYourEars on Twitter and Instagram, one could unlock a $5 donation from Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, up to $1 million. It was that simple! The response from around the world was overwhelming and Disney Parks donated $2 million to Make-A-WishÂŽ, double the original pledge, to recognize the outpouring of public support for the campaign between January 29 and March 14. Think of how many more kids with life-threatening medical conditions will have their lives change for the better because of one photo with Mickey Mouse ears! This extraordinary relationship has touched the lives of millions of people around the world, from wish children and their families to the countless medical professionals, volunteers and donors who help make wishes come true.

Why Doodles for Design? The SDA feature this season has plenty to offer in terms of content more so through design. This time, doodles led the way to design thoughts and convey a message. Doodling comes naturally to many people but, the effort to master what comes naturally exists in a few. Each and every page as you have seen is covered in doodles. Why, you may ask! The best part about doodles is its inclusive quality. Items that are even subtly relatable in spite of their distinguished nature when collectively placed can and have the opportunity to appear as one single concept. It resembles what most people lack – acceptance. The relevance of doodles here is to bring about an understanding of connectivity and acceptance. A different theme has been followed on every page to interest and enthrall. Simultaneously conveying a single message overall to the entire team at SDA. It is vital that content and design are on the same tangent. Content is always known to speak for itself. Design is usually pleasing to the eye; in addition having an engaging concept to it would increase its ability further to last long on minds. Hence, intending to captivate your attention and excite your thoughts. Intensely observe every independent object and thing incorporated within the doodles; you will see on its completion a mesmerizing picture. This design has a subliminal message encouraging all at SDA to bring their uniqueness to the table. Trust that the outcome of such an act could benefit one another and when seen in larger perspective - SDA.
