One month after getting cameras for Diwali, there was no better way to celebrate this one-month anniversary than to take lots of pictures and share them. So, we asked everyone in the office to shoot everything and anything they wanted and share their favourite picture with the rest of us. After five days, four e-mail reminders, two verbal shout-outs and a technical snag, we managed to get 25 pictures.

While the Metro construction threatens to bring traffic to a standstill, it’s good to know that at least the sign painters are having a ball. Bringing some much needed mirth to these grey, foggy winter days. Here’s the second installment of trippy directional signage. Some of these were taken on the Ring Road near Golden Dragon restaurant and some near Saket.
Last Thursday, W+K Delhi celebrated the launch of the Navigator music video. With a 200-name-long guest list (that kept increasing), 250 litres of alcohol and live performance by Jalebee Cartel, the party went on till 5:00 am. Amazingly, on Friday morning, the attendance in the office was 100%.

Screening of the video
Sometime back we made a commercial for the Nokia Navigator involving crowded streets, birds and horses. The track that formed the soundtrack to that commercial was released seperately by the creators, electronica act Jalabee Cartel. It went on to become a massive hit on the club circuit. And even inspired a video by close friend and photographer Bharat Sikka. A party at Marut Sikka’s kicking bar Magique will mark the official launch today. (Please note: Entry by invitation only) Indian viewers can see the video on VH1 and W+K people can sample it when we upload it to W+K radio shortly.
