“Entropia is a white sheet effort to reappraise the role of creativity in the age of data and marketing automation. How can brands retain their magic in the popular culture and imagination despite such complex cluttered lives, that people lead, is a central question of marketing today I am excited to be a part of an ecosystem that is keen to find that answer for our clients in ways – that are both original and rigorous,” Yee said.
Kumar added: “Yee’s deep creative experience in both online and offline sides of the world, puts him in a unique place to bring together the magic of old world craft and storytelling in combination with new age creative vocabulary.”
“Creativity has nine lives in Entropia, and Yee has lived it all. He has seen the best, and been the best. Together with our partners, we hope he can help further boost our commitment to our clients’ businesses,” Kumar said.
