With Visualisation & Design supporting the Content Development and Ad-space Selling & Digital Marketing supporting Corporate Communications, the AD IDEAS philosophy is sustainable and adaptable! Wordcrafting – is the genesis of our existence. Our mission is to spin beautiful stories and use them in meaningful contexts, to enhance the clients’ business. We prefer a multi-layered communication strategy – so as to deliver to our clients a distinct and powerful program that addresses each target audience in the language (written, spoken or visual) they understand and are able to identify with. Mapping innovative ideas across a variety of media to beget tangible results - is the philosophy we stand by. Our faith in what we do that helps us to achieve a high degree of success and satisfaction. At AD IDEAS, we believe, and the beliefs are backed by research and case-studies, that the visual appeal (image/graphics) is the most powerful tool of impact, and that every communication about a business that goes out to the world must necessarily be content-driven, and have a purpose-driven design! We have seen several examples of failed campaigns – caused by poor understanding of the purpose or complicated and confusing content of its website/newsletter! AD IDEAS plans and writes impactful content – understanding the product and its targeted audience. Working closely with the technical team, during the sitemap and wire-framing stages, we aim to blend content and design to enable a seamless and pleasurable experience of navigating the website. Brainstorming sessions on brand building and promotions enable us to devise optimized marketing solutions.

TESTIMONIALS

Words Of Encouragement

“Ar. Roopa Sabnis Pinge is a renowned name in Architectural Journalism and has been the Editor for many design/architectural magazines. She has written in Newspapers like The Times Of India and has also been on the Advisory Panel on several design-related publications. Her command over written English and particularly on design vocabulary is extremely noteworthy. She can capture the essence of design accurately in words. Her aesthetic awareness, about contemporary design styles is appreciable. She has also texted my educational web site www.artinarch.com for Basic Design subject, taught to students of Architecture. Her feature on my award-winning Heritage Conservation work of Khoja Jamat Khana at Bandstand Bandra (West), is worth mentioning. She is one of the most important acquaintances of my professional career. ”

- AR.SHIRISH SUKHATME

“Meeting a young lady architect, just arrived from Baroda to Mumbai - all ready to venture into journalism - was a pleasant surprise. Being an architect with good command over English she was set for a bright future. Since then, she edited or wrote in prestigious magazines and books. It was my privilege to have some of my featured projects written by her, in various magazines and more recently on TFOD – all of which are highly appreciated. After her sabbatical 5 years in Singapore & Sydney, she returned with new ideas and enthusiasm. I have seen her grow in the field of architecture and Interior design journalism, shifting from print to digital media, with a portal called TFOD – The Future Of Design – to bring on a common platform artists, architects, designers, materials and methodology; which has become a trendsetter..”

AR. RAJESH PATEL

“From the beginning of my independent practice, I know Ar. Roopa Sabnis Pinge. Her choice of career – shifting from mainstream architecture to the then-offbeat track of architectural journalism was intriguing. Roopa’s writing is sincere, honest, and incisive; her flair for getting the essence of the design apparent in all the writing she has done over the past 23 years. Roopa has had a rather eventful career, full of opportunities and challenges. She has been on the Editorial teams of many publications, besides being a columnist for The Times Of India’s Baroda Edition. She has also done television shows, CD-ROMs, and authored-edited books. Now shifting to the digital media, she has masterminded a portal for art, architecture and design – The Future Of Design. She is at the helm of the changing scenario and I wish her luck in all future endeavours.”
