GURURGRAM, INDIA // Swati’s work is an ode to the joys and tragedies of life, and the myriad roles that brands play in inspiring us to rise above and embrace the best versions of ourselves.

This is driven by belief. The belief that peoples and brands are one – a singularity purposed to inspire in the present, a sense of conviction to be a part of the enduring human story, and in the future to forge their own trails with the brands they love. This belief echoes in her campaigns.

Her campaigns are not just marketing platforms but edifices to human stories that inspire and encourage us to pay it forward.

Swati started her career in advertising twenty-four years ago. A young woman driven by hunger, excitement, and drive to make a difference; she made her mark very quickly. In 2016 she became India’s first woman CCO, when she joined FCB Ulka.
