‘A Monk Who Trades’ started out as a tool to reach out to MCX's customers and stakeholders about the Dos, Don’ts and everything in between about exchanges and their functions.


The biggest challenge was to pick up subjects that were technical and informational in nature, and present them in a manner that would appeal to a much larger audience base.The idea was to make it educational without being academic. And what better way to do that, than with a little humour thrown in.


We wrapped the message we wanted to convey in situations that weren’t just relatable but also entertaining. And thus, a new comic strip was born.In a highly regulated category that has a reputation of all work and no play, the comic strip was received exceptionally well.
