Vaibhav Bhanot

Assistant Producer at MTV India

Mumbai, India
A self-driven, passionate and dedicated designer, I am a staunch believer of “learning by doing”. This journey from being an engineer to designer gave me insight into the opportunities and challenges faced in the media industry. Aside from creating websites and social media campaigns I can be seen cracking jokes, compelling people to split with laughter, creating music or trying different cuisines.

Music is my drive, my soul. I thrive best in an environment that resonates team spirit, integrity and service to the community at large. Besides from the work I have done at Cogmat and MTV, I am compassionate towards the needs of the underprivileged and truly believe in giving back to society through the work done by several organizations.

Work Experience


Assistant Producer

- Focus on Communication and Interaction design sensibilities for varied media platforms, ensuring that the designs adapt to the latest trends of its content consumption style.

- My key responsibility areas include taking care of the brand identity as well as conceptualizing and executing properties for clients and the brand itself. Optimizing social media content and taking care of visual language of the brand across all digital platforms.

- Undertaking brand promotional design for all properties and shows considering factors ranged from the base concept of a property to the target group.

- To bridge the viewership gap that arose because the content that was screened on-air a decade ago was unavailable to viewers, I created “MTV From the Vault”-an online bank of all MTV India’s videos. I focused on creating a comfortable user interface and experience, backed with a strong search engine. This is aimed to be the future of content creation, as over the years the users consumption pattern and program loyalties can be mapped.

- My key responsibility areas included designing artwork as well as conceptualizing & ideating brand campaigns and promotions for clients such as, QuickHeal, Chambor, Edelweiss, Provogue, Intercontinental Marine Drive, Four Points by Sheraton, Mufti, Angel Broking and Siarams.

- The start-up eco-system at Cogmat required that I cover more than just my job profile. As a Visualizer, I overlooked the design team and participated in brainstorming sessions with the business development team. Moreover, leading a young and dynamic team provided me with the platform to showcase my creative talents.

- Led brainstorming sessions to come up with innovative solutions to an issue and push the limits to deliver strong and improved results. Presented ideas to clients aided by concept visuals and provided them with reasons for the adopted approach.

- Set up new design trends on social media to establish each client’s individual presence. For this I created comprehensive presentations with competition analysis and brand styles across media. For example: Provogue, Chambor, Siarams.

- Led design workshops for the social media team to enhance the team’s creative and design capabilities.

- Worked on the design of several utility mobile as well as software applications. For example, ICICI Bank, Mahindra, HDFC Bank.

- Developed several detailed micro-sites as well websites for national and international clients. For example:
1. Suit Your Way: A comprehensive and detailed e-commerce website for customized formal wear targeted at the global audience. Being heavily integrated with options the website design required a user-friendly interface. Using Magento as the open-source interface every page was handcrafted to perfection.
2. QuickHeal: ‘101 Uses of Gadgets without QuickHeal’ Campaign.
Conceptualized and designed the identity of the entire campaign all of which were used across the timeline. The digital campaign became viral and was soon converted in to a multi-media campaign.
