Archish 15 this year scaled in a different way with all the more reasons to term it as another benchmark…
Great efforts were put by every student, faculty mentors and staff in each & every possible aspect. It will be a special remembrance for all, because of the short duration (in just 14 days!) taken to put up the show as well as the single day carpet bombing of 203 institutes in Bangalore as part of Invitations. The event was promoted through Social media where colleges and alumni were relentlessly bombarded with updates and graphics before and during the fest reaching more than 130,000 people!
The theme this time was Vibrissa in an attempt to derive indications from Moustaches, because in corporate world it is about change; people should adapt to change. The theme shows that people have to wear different moustaches and should change their look in the continuous changing environment.
The campus was aptly decorated keeping the theme in mind with depictions of various kinds moustaches all over. The overall sponsorship for the event was worth Rs. 4.5 lakhs that came from sponsors like Inox, Urzza, Bisleri, Papa Johns, Rolls on wheels, EBay, Line, Dark Arts Tatoo, Chithra Creations and Lush Cosmetics.
