GraphicPeople’s journey to becoming one of the region’s leading offshore production hubs began with Dell among its first clients. Working for one of the world’s largest computer manufacturing and IT services company involves being part of an enormous marketing operation where all production needs to come together seamlessly. GraphicPeople supports Dell’s global catalogue production, providing localization and simultaneous activation services for its 24-page business catalogues for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) markets, published for 12 countries and in 14 languages.

cold or two, digitally! So when tasked to support a 150-year old personal care company,
the team knew they had to call upon all their accumulated experience to get it right.
Given its track record for digital excellence with leading global brands and
agencies, GraphicPeople was invited to support global personal care leader

Dhaka team would help build an interactive website for the US and Canadian

The launch of a
flagship product from the world’s largest software maker is always a

to support the launch of a new edition of the world’s most popular OS. The

critical element from the beginning. However, a bigger challenge for the
GraphicPeople team was delivering the required volume of digital assets within near-impossible

coordination and communication roles. The teams put in place contingency plans
in case of mishaps because there would be no time for experimentation.
Communications planning and time zone management helped optimize product
review, feedback and brief preparation sessions with colleagues in Singapore,
which was two hours ahead of Dhaka time.
The advertising industry has undergone multidimensional change in the last 15 years. From clients to creative to communication channels, the advertising mix now includes an almost unavoidable digital footprint in every marketing communication function. Technology and digital evolution have grown together, giving clients much more options to reach customers and pushing agencies to spur innovation across all agency operations. A faster moving market with even faster moving customers have meant traditional time to market windows and campaign deployment times have plummeted from the pre-digital advertising days.
