Account Manager

Avantika Bakshi

"The magic is in the details."

Avantika’s greatest asset is her curiosity and determination to understand the HOW and WHY of any project given to her. To her, half knowledge is more dangerous than no knowledge. With that, she seeks to ask the right questions until she understands the bigger picture of her client’s vision.

Avantika’s experience at big agency has allowed her to thrive in a fast-paced environment while having a keen eye for detail. Her attention to the smallest details and dedication to growth ensure nothing is missed with her clients. Avantika’s always on the hunt to learn and brings her newest insights into her next strategy.

She holds a BA in Mass Media from Mumbai University and completed her Post-grad in Marketing and Project Management from Douglas College. In her spare time, she enjoys visiting national parks and drawing mandalas.

Digital Performance Manager

Garvit Bafna

"What we do in life echoes in eternity."

A computer science engineer and an MBA, Garvit has been helping clients
market their brands on the Internet since 2010. But, he doesn’t fit in the typical ‘digital marketing’ or ‘analyst’ box. To Garvit, the internet is an access point to our connected, collective consciousness. Equal parts data nerd and poetic philosopher with an uncanny ability to move people to tears through his writings, Garvit’s quest is to bring meaning to research and analytics to transform data into human insights and experiences. Forever curious about the “why”, he loves working on finding solutions to challenging problems.
