In Sri Lanka, Phoenix Ogilvy is the premier marketing and communications agency in the country. Founded as Phoenix Advertising in 1972 by Chairman Irvin Weerackody, the agency quickly established itself as a force to be reckoned with in Sri Lanka. Over two decades later, Phoenix merged with Ogilvy & Mather to become the global advertising giant’s creative arm in the country.
Today, we continue to blaze a trail in Sri Lankan advertising. One of the cornerstones of our success is our strength in creating groundbreaking integrated campaigns using cross-disciplinary expertise in creativity, strategy, activation, digital, PR, and media.And the results are there for all to see: We have the most diverse and widest client portfolio, including Coca-Cola, Sri Lanka Telecom, Singer Sri Lanka, NDB Bank, GlaxoSmithKline, HEMAS, Nestle, British American Tobacco, and Ceylinco just to name a few (see ‘Clients’ for full list), and cabinets full of awards and accolades. In fact, we are the only Sri Lankan agency to have bagged a gold award at an international advertising festival when we won with Iodex’s ‘Little People’ campaign at AdFest 2010 in Phuket. This is just the tip of the ice berg (see ‘Work’ for more campaigns).This is but a glimpse of Phoenix Ogilvy’s track record in Sri Lanka.
