1.0 Background of the Organization.
Triad (Pvt) Ltd.
Triad advertising agency was established over seventeen years ago in 1993. During its time triad was able to be the number one advertising agency in Sri Lanka.
Triad was established in an industry which was dominated by agencies which had tie-ups with international advertising giants such as JWT, Leo Burnett, LOWE and Ogilvy and so on. Triad as the only fully Sri Lankan owned advertising agency identified there was a vacuum in the market for creative work which was based on local insights due to the fact, at that given time almost all the campaigns was first thought and executed in English and then translated to Sinhala with a notable difference despite the fact that 90% of the market consist of Sinhala and Tamil speaking consumers.
Based on this market need, Triad’s proposition was to provide creative business solutions which are based on local culture and social insights for local business entities.
As an advertising company Triad was able to accomplish numerous achievements such as winning the first ever advertising award in Ad Fest for Sri Lanka and be named as the number one agency in Sri Lanka for three consecutive years in Chillies (Local advertising awards) which proves its creative capabilities. Furthermore Triad has claimed the best advertisement award in two consecutive years (2009 & 2010) in “Sumathi Awards” which is a reputed local advertising award. Triad has also won the most number of awards at Effies (2009) which further establish that its creative work actually works for the client.
