They are said to be existing since life first originated on Earth. They are cylindrical in form and yellow in colour. Flaunting their denim overalls, they have successfully created ripples in the fashion scene. Their name is synonymous with their love for bananas and penchant for singing. You guessed it right, it’s the Minions.
Ever since we first saw them in Despicable Me (2010), Minions have found a special place in our hearts. Never mind their childish ways, their quirky mannerisms, their garbled lingo (Minionese, anyone), the yellow capsule-shaped adorable-looking creatures have hit a popular note with kids as well as grownups.
With the Despicable Me franchise on an expanding spree, the popularity of the endearing yellow henchmen, too, is on an upswing. Minions is a trademark and copyright of Universal Studios. The buzz is only getting bigger, with brand licensing generating quite an upsurge in product promotions, merchandising et al.
Minions in their most prolific avatar star in Pramara’s latest catalogue. The company has been successfully creating brand extensions in the licensing space through creative products and brand integration through promotional licensing, product licensing, event and tactical licensing. Minions were designed for Mondelez International for markets in Malaysia, Indonesia, India.
