unifying knowledge, Experience and Creativity for Success.
We had to write a script for our ASCO conference and I was not at all getting satisfied with the copies. I received from various agencies. At the eleventh hour, an agency named SCDS came up with a brilliant theme and script and saved the day. We were all impressed with their work. What happened later was a professional relationship with them that harvested success after success. This lead to a lot of creative campaigns (Mission Everest, Nanoxel, Kabigef Launch, Annual Calendar etc.) for our company. SCDS displayed creativity, professionalism, timeliness, superb designing skills and creative brand support. Above and beyond, they brought in fresh energy to our team. With time, Sudarshan and I became great friends. He introduced me to his music, art and his various multifaceted talents. Even though I have left the company and city now, I always look forward to working with him and SCDS.

Head Internal Communications
SCDS has been a great resource for us from a end-to-end communications standpoint. Through some of the campaigns that we worked together, they have been able to bring out the essence of Quest Diagnostics as a brand, in a manner that was creative and differentiated from the category. Through innovative use of colours and design elements, lucidly written copy and interesting communication themes SCDS has helped us translate difficult scientific topics, like Cardiovascular testing, into clearly understood customer benefits. Working within strict brand guidelines and sometimes strict timelines, they have helped us put together impressive brand campaigns, with significant top line impact, while retaining their creative flair and independence.

DIRECTOR HR - CTA
Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation, Netherlands
SCDS has always been a result oriented agency. When it came to being creative, they were the best for the job. It was not only because of their zeal, but, pharma advertising in total is a very challenging assignment that everybody thinks is far away from conventional advertising. At Ranbaxy Africa desk, SCDS was a name synonym to good concepts and quick execution. With SCDS we created great concepts which helped us achieve brand objectives. Sudarshan built SCDS with sheer commitment and dedication. This guy has an element of crazy behavior similar to many other advertising guys that always ensured a brilliant output.

Sudarshan’s creative agency SCDS Global was a major reason for our marketing and communication success in international markets in the 3 years that I was associated with him. They were responsible for some outstanding brand campaigns for our OTC, anti-infective and multivitamin brands in Africa. Above all, I believe - Sudarshan is in his element working on a tight brief where he can translate ideas into practical design. He has on many occasions come up with unmatched creative in varied forms, be it graphic, story, AV or music, I strongly recommend Sudarshan and his creative company to all wanting to show case their work in the marketing and advertising world.

Sudarshan is a creative powerhouse. His ability to think on multiple fronts is indeed commendable. His approach to any assignment is not based on what the brand is now but more on what the brand can be. In fact Sudarshan and I had the privilege to work on a brand which was awarded at an industry forum last year. An extremely decent human being with an indefatigable 'can do' attitude, Sudarshan is an inspiration to many. I wish him and his team all success
(Pharma, Life Sciences & Healthcare) with an 'Un'Consultant Approach, Leadership Coach, White-Space Consulting and Capability Building, India
Sudarshan had been my guide during my 2nd year in Architecture school ( I won't mention the subject coz it wa n't limited to some time frame, it's still working). The work done under his guidance has been one of my finest projects. We did 2 projects together both were totally different. One was making a poster through abstraction while the other was making a small movie. One thing common between both the projects was the process. Mr. Sudershan has a unique style of working. He always starts with aiming something, then divides it into small tasks and defines a time line to it. By following this process, I was very easily able to achieve the targets and at any point in time one is able check the results. This procedure has actually helped me a lot in my career. I have tried to apply this at almost every project till now. In addition Sudershan is a very talented person. He has a vast knowledge of things in various fields and general awareness, which makes him suitable for any kind of topics (its d biggest requirement of an artist, so as to be able visualize anything and everything). Whatever it requires to be a true artist, he has it all with highly courageous attitude, he is a very hardworking and smart working person and a wonderful human being.
Partner at Dot Design Architecture, India
Sudarshan is an exceptional teacher. He has great ways of instilling design sense in students through creative assignments that need more than just a brushstroke. I believe it is essential for a designer to be able to think and look at a design problem from multiple perspectives to identify a path. The exercises we did as part of Sudarshan's class have really helped me develop this skill. In one of the exercises, we started with sketching a tree in various media, which lead to an abstract sketch, to an abstract model and further to a story woven into it as a structure. How he was able to combine teaching graphics and architecture through art and modeling is truly commendable. He is a very vibrant, involved, encouraging and approachable instructor – always available to help students and making them think outside the box
User Experience Designer, India
"‘Ridiculously Efficient’ is the phrase that comes to my mind when I think about Sudarshan. I had the pleasure of working with him for more than 12 years and collaborating on several projects. Sudarshan is a dedicated, ambitious, result driven leader and thoughtful individual. If you ever need someone to deliver under pressure, no slip-ups, just results, Sudarshan is your man! He is great in dealing with difficult situations and a fantastic problem solver. I recommend him to anyone looking for Brand Building, Communication Design, Corporate Branding, Films, Music and Multimedia
