The glorious journey of Pathfynder in 2015

It is evidently wonderful to see any change or development in the company you’ve nurtured year after year. Pathfynder saw and delivered incredible projects over the last couple of years, especially the year 2015. While most of the ventures and projects signify progressive developments in the social media and branding industry of Rajasthan while some evoke nostalgia for the achievements in the past. Pathfynder and its team strives to bring in revolutionary changes and developments in the Social Media Industry, here’s a review of some cherished moments we saw in Pathfynder..


Soul Of Rajasthan, a Coffee Table Book Launch

After the roaring success of the first edition of ‘Soul of Rajasthan’, Pathfynder launched Soul of Rajasthan – Second Edition in the year 2015.   The Second edition was again a beautiful journey that takes the reader through the different faces of Rajasthan. To be precise the true soul of Rajasthan is cocooned in this book that comprises 144 pages, 143 outstanding photographs clicked by Gaurav Hajela and the impressive content written by team Pathfynder.

The book is an attempt by PATHFYNDER to present Rajasthan’s religious kaleidoscope, in an altogether different way.

We feel very proud with the opening of our studio, which has all the modern facilities and equipment’s required for photography, be it for fashion, product, portfolio and e-commerce photoshoots.

In the month of September, it was a major breakthrough to have launched our own studio and undertaking all photo-shoots for our existing as well as new customers.


E-commerce Website

The year 2015 was important as Pathfynder ventured into the making e-commerce websites that provides complete e-commerce solution to our clients. Ecommerce websites designed and developed by Pathfynder give a surprisingly easy and convenient way to sell products online.

The online shopping experience, which was once reserved for major online retailers, is now our forte. Our e-commerce websites gives the convenience of a fully integrated free shopping cart and a secure checkout. Our e-commerce websites are designed with search engines in mind and are optimized accordingly.

Fashion Shoot

Khushboo-e-Rajasthan (Corporate Social Responsibility)

Conceived and developed by Jaipur Beat, the biggest online magazine in Jaipur, under the umbrella of Pathfynder, initiated Khushboo- e-Rajasthan which was one of the most gripping online photography contest.

In the year 2014 the event started as Khushboo- e Jaipur and it won many hearts thus was back again. The contest received tremendous response from the avid and amateur photographers of the city and beyond.  As Pathfynder’s Corporate Social Responsibility, Khushboo- e- Rajasthan was a delightful treat to eyes, showcasing incredible and fascinating photographs of Rajasthan and cultural vibrancy contributed by the natives of Rajasthan.


Fashion shoots for multiple brands for e-commerce website

While selling clothing/accessories online, professional photography is the most powerful tool. In the year 2015 Pathfynder undertake photography projects for e-commerce websites. We pride ourselves in having the skills, the staff and the facilities to provide the images with high quality.

Our shoots are well conceptualized with storyboards, we hire models, stylist, select the location and arrange for props according to the concept.

We make beautiful photographs keeping the entire process simple and enjoyable.


Part of Savio Journey for launch & promotion

Savio Jewellery unveiled its esteemed Guinness World Record Holder – The Peacock Ring at a dazzling event. Pathfynder was in charge for the entire conceptualization and visualization of the launch event and promotion of the Peacock Ring for our esteemed client Savio Jewellery. Complete content including press releases, brochure content, invitation card, teasers, Emcee content were done by us. Still photo shoot of the ring, AV of the ring, designing of brochure, invitation cards, making of a presentation, handling of digital media was all done at one point i.e Pathfynder 🙂


Website for India’s First Heritage Hotel

We all are aware that a lot goes into creating an eye-catching, user-friendly website. To start with the concept, it’s the efforts of photographers, content writers, web designers and web developers, who work together to produce a website at Pathfynder for our clients. And when it’s about India’s First Heritage Hotel, it has to be unique, creative and should stand out of the crowd. We accomplished the website work of Ajit Bhawan in a month’s time.

The entire design was being made keeping in view the responsiveness to the device, be it desktop computers, laptops, tablets or mobiles.

Ajit Bhawan- India’s First Heritage Hotel Website Goes Live

Screen Shot 2015-07-08 at 3.32.08 pmWe all are aware that a lot goes into creating an eye-catching, user-friendly website. To start with the concept, it’s the efforts of photographers, content writers, web designers and web developers, who work together to produce a website at Pathfynder for our clients. Phew! That’s a lot of work, plus the deadline to meet. But the process of creating a unique user experience ultimately inspires viewers to become brand loyal advocates, and that is the biggest satisfaction that we attain.

Supposed to be India’s first heritage hotel, Ajit Bhawan in Jodhpur is a splendid mansion built by Maharaja Ajit Singhji of Jodhpur. At one point of time, the palace had been the home to the Maharaja. Part of this palace is still occupied by the royal family. As this huge mansion allures many tourists with its royal appeal it was not easy to make the website for the same depicting the true beauty of the place.


When the website is designed, the main focal point is it’s appealing pictures, unique design, color scheme, brands logo, navigation, usability, loading times, compatibility and responsiveness, comprehensive site map, social media integration, original and factually correct content creation. Approvals and disapprovals are part of a game at every point but that certainly does not disappoint any one of the team members. We struggled and juggled and at last we accomplished the website work of Ajit Bhawan in a month’s time.

Our Philosophy

Our aim was to make the website unique, but to keep it simple. Presence of a distinctive feature like conversion of sketch to its original picture makes the landing page more impressive.  Also to reduce the effort of a viewer the mouse over function has been used. The entire design is being made keeping in view that the design should be responsive to the device, be it desktop computers, laptops, tablets or mobiles. For the first time, site map was used that help users and search engines index the site and make it more convenient to navigate on smart phones. Under the umbrella of Ajit Bhawan there exists two websites –Ajitbhawan and Rawla Narlai. website AJIT BHAWAN RAWLA NARLAI screen shot website 2 Ajit Bhawan The designs of each are in the sync with the main website but on the other hand the selection of color scheme for both goes according to the original color of the property. creative launch1 Full width images were used in the website, as they are automatically resized if they get too big on mobile. So here, Pathfynder takes pride in presenting, which is up & live NOW. We humbly request to visit the site and give your feedback for the same!

Celebration Of Month October With Contestober!


, , , , , , , ,

Social media is an industry built on the base of technology that shifts daily, demanding creativity and innovation because platforms, trends and best practices are constantly changing and evolving.
To develop an effective marketing program, Jaipur Beat which is an online digital magazine of Pink City and a brainchild of Pathfynder, launched the concept of Contestober aimed to celebrate the festive mood of the month October.

contestoberJaipur Beat conducted its first Contestober  in association with one of the leading fine dining restaurants of Jaipur ‘The Forresta Kitchen & Bar’. Contestober #1 ‘Forresta Foodesta’ kicked off on October 8, 2014 and ran till October 10, 2014. With interesting brand related question the contest received amazing audience engagement and garnered huge number of likes on Facebook by the food lovers of the city.

contestober1Jaipur Beat also initiated and executed another contest in association with Rabhyaa which is a notable jewelry brand of Pink City. Contestober #2 ‘Shine with Rabhyaa’ was set into motion on October 16, 2014 and ended on Dhanteras i.e. October 21, 2014. This contest which tested the basic knowledge of jewelry drew an overwhelming response from the enthusiastic people of the city.

contestober 2We all know that the selfie obsession has got into the blood of our country’s youth. So to celebrate the love affair of our youth with their cameras, Jaipur Beat in association with Fotopro launched Contestober #3 ‘Fotomania’ on October31, 2014. The selfie lovers of the city participated in the contest with a lot of zeal and the vibrant faces in the pictures clearly justified the saying ‘Self love is the best love’.

Pathfynder along with Jaipur Beat was able to create an innovative approach and use the power of social media to shape up and attract traffic for the contests successfully.

Success Story- Pathfynder’s Blog of Jaipur Beat goes Viral on Social Media


, , , ,

With a kick start in the year 2010, the journey of Jaipur Beat began with an idea to connect with the young and enthusiastic generation of the Jaipur city. The blog falls under the umbrella of Pathfynder Solutions and was the very first of its kind to establish a communication platform to connect with the jaipurites by disseminating information in a very light and crisp manner. The blog for over three years captured every essence of Pink City through its photographs, facts, short stories, features, views and reviews. Be it any event happening in the city, upcoming movie, tourism, shopping, food, or the mention of popular lanes in the wall city, all was covered in a very interactive and appealing manner over the blog.

Initially after creating a buzz amongst the teenagers, college goers and young professionals the blog gradually became the beat of the Jaipur city as the people from various age groups were able to relate with the facts and stories published on the blog.

Some things work best when they are kept simple. The focus of entire blog is to keep it  very simple and uncomplicated which becomes the primary reason for its success and the connection it generated with the audience.

After sharing a strong communication bond with the people of Jaipur over the years and getting an overwhelming response on the features like ‘9 amazing places a photographer must visit in Jaipur during monsoon’, ‘4 reasons why we love to visit World Trade Park’ and ‘5 treasures named after Sawai Man Singh ll’ the creative bug at Jaipur Beat brought up an idea that connects with every Jaipurite on a more personal level which finally materialised with a blog topic ” 25 things that prove you are a true Jaipurite” 

There was no looking back! When the final draft of the blog was published it got tremendous response and was appreciated by each and every one but the fact that it will create history was the lesser known fact till the time it went viral on social media.

Till now there are 381 shares on Jaipur Beat Facebook page

The blog also reached at 8th position amongst the top 100 daily blogs of the day in the world on the word press during the day, for the fact being it was the only Indian blog to stand strong on the number 8th position amongst those hundred.

Apart from the Jaipurites, the tourist who have visited the city previously and the people who all could relate to the mentioned facts have taken on the mantle of active sharing and interacting on social media about the blog.

The trending Jaipur Beat blog also caught the eye of print media and the leading news paper DNA featured it the very next day under the head ‘What’s Trending Today’

8 Reasons Why You Should Upgrade To iOS 8


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

During the much hyped launch event of Apple iPhone 6 and Apple Watch, there was also an announcement of the official release of iOS 8 for public download. iOS 8 is the latest OS from Apple for their iPhones, iPads and iPods. The OS builds its foundation on iOS 7 and apart from iPhone 4 and first generation iPad, supports all the current crop of models available. We tested the OS on our good old iPhone 5.


The package to download was 957 MB and as we tried to download immediately after its public release the complete installation took almost 2 hours. The total size of the package after the download is 1.2 GB. So why should you actually upgrade to this new OS on your current Apple device ?

1. Messages : The new iMessage bridges the gap between Whatsapp and other messaging tools. Now attaching the picture or a video is just a piece of cake. You can also send audio messages that can be self destructed. Also deleting a message in thread won’t change the status of original message and unlike earlier messages, the thread would be visible on the top even though the last message received is few days or hours old. Some thing very similar to Whatsapp.


2. Camera : The camera of an iPhone is also a thing to be envied. Despite not so high offering in MP count, 8MP camera in all the devices does wonders against the so called huge MP offerings from competitors. iOS 8 now offers large number of editing tools after you have clicked an image. Frankly these tools make some of the photo editing apps from the iOS 6 and 7 quite redundant. And the editing is real time.


3. Time lapse : The camera app now allows you to click and record time lapse directly. This is huge as all the good and professional Time lapse apps are generally paid. Apple is really trying to nullify the threat from upcoming players such as Instagram’s Hyper lapse.


4. Smart Keyboard : Although this tool is available in Android from quite some time, iOS does integrate this finally. While typing, the keyboard suggests the “contextually appropriate words” to complete your sentence. Frankly we found this far more powerful and intelligent than its Android counterparts.

IMG_58755. Favourites : New iOS offers and establishes your favourites based on your communications with them. So connecting with these favourites is just a click away. Just double click on your home button and you can get a list of your favourites. Clicking on these favourites would allow you to send message or call them directly.

IMG_58716. Tips : There is also a tips tool where there are 9 tips for you to learn and use iOS 8 to its full potential. The tool also indicate that there will be more updates in times to come.


7. Health : Apple has integrated the health tool very tightly with existing apps. Now your calories count, heart rates, sleeping logs, all can be monitored and checked under one tool.


8. Family Sharing : This allows upto 6 users in a family to share photos, locations, purchases from iTunes and app. Setting this is very easy and this also helps if you have 2-3 devices such as iPhone, iPad and Macs in the same household. IMG_5877So cosmetically there isn’t a large differentiator between iOS 7 and iOS 8 but trust us, this is far powerful and intelligent OS than its younger brother. The finesse is very much there as all the earlier iOS. The existing device is not slowed down by upgrading and new additional features make your usage of old devices far more exciting. Strongly recommended .

iPhone 6 is to be “watched”


There are launches and then there is launch of an iPhone. Undoubtedly the biggest launch in the industry, the invites of this launch scheduled for 9th September were sent well in advance. What was surprising was that the invites were sent to leading fashionistas and fashion bloggers putting the speculation rife that Apple’s watch will be unveiled in this event. Exactly at 10.30 IST, the event started and although Apple announced that live video streaming will be available for the event on their website the video streaming stopped after few minutes into the launch. However the live updates were available for all to see and digest. Tim Cook took the stage and after a nostalgic trip the iPhone 6 was launched.


Today we are pleased to announce the biggest announcement in iPhone is how Tim Cook started the session and the launch. Jaipur Beat was following the launch of these Apple products with bated breath. This is our take on the new products from Apple.

Size : The size of iPhone 6 is 5.44″ * 2.64″ and 6 Plus is 6.22″ * 3.02″. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus weighs 129 grams and 172 grams respectively. Despite big size these iPhones surely are leaner and maybe meaner.

iPhone6 has a 4.7 inch display and iPhone6 plus has a 5.5 inch display

iPhone6 has a 4.7 inch display and iPhone6 plus has a 5.5 inch display

Shape: The new iPhone comes with continuous seamless design with a combination of anodized aluminium, stainless steel and glass. So no sharp edges in the corner, this one comes with curves on the side. Apart from the new shape, these iPhone are one of the thinnest iPhones ever. At 6.9 mm, iPhone 6 is the thinnest iPhone currently. Even the iPhone plus is thinner than iPhone 5s despite its big size and display. The biggest change is the shift of power button which moves to the right side of the phone from the conventional right hand top. The volume buttons are also flat as compared to round in iPhone 5S.


Display : The new iPhone comes with the screen size of 4.7″ (iPhone 6) and 5.5″ (iPhone 6 Plus) multi touch display with IPS technology. Gone are the days when we used to say small is beautiful and handy. These iPhones are big and maybe bulky at times. So after all the size does matter 😉 Both of these come with the standard Retina display. iPhone 6 has a resolution of 1334 * 750 at 326 pixels per inch. That’s a serious resolution to have on a phone but iPhone 6 plus is really a plus when it comes to display. It comes with 1920 * 1080 at 401 pixels per inch. That’s full 1080p HD resolution in your pocket at 5.5″. The iPhone 6 comes with a new landscape view on home screen itself.


Processor : Both the iPhones come with Apple designed A8 chip. This chip has upto 25% faster processing power and upto 50% faster graphics power than its predecessor. The A8 chip is built on second-generation 64-bit desktop-class architecture. Its incredible power is enhanced by an M8 motion coprocessor that efficiently measures your activity from advanced sensors, including a new barometer.

Camera : As we all know, iPhone is one of the major reasons why every person is turning into a photographer these days. Now the 8MP iSight Camera with f/2.2 aperture has a new sensor with Focus Pixels and new video features, like 1080p HD at 60 fps, slo-mo at 240 fps, and time-lapse video mode.


iOS 8 :  iOS 8 is the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. With incredible new  features designed to make the most of a larger display, iOS 8 is smooth and makes every moment feel bigger and better.

Apple Pay : Dear Wallet, your days are numbered because Apple Pay intends to replace you. Now paying in stores happens with just one touch !  The Near Field Communication antenna in iPhone 6 allows you to pay by just holding your iPhone near the contactless reader with your finger on Touch ID.


 Battery : With increased battery life, iPhone 6 lets you do more, for longer than ever. iPhone 6 will offer almost the same battery life as iPhone 5s however iPhone 6 Plus will come with bigger battery to compliment its size.


Looking at all the above things, are you tempted to buy iPhone 6 ? If you are already an Apple freak this is a must buy, and if you are not, we are sure you will become one after using this 😉 🙂

Kingfisher Beer Up

The Forresta Kitchen & Bar hosted Kingfisher Beer-Up day-before yesterday, on May 8th, and Pathfynder, as its social-media partner, covered the event LIVE across all the social-media platforms on which this fine-dining restaurant has its presence.

Kingfisher Beer Up Twitter RSVP

The RSVP was opened on 3rd May and within minutes 50 slots were complete.

KFBeerUp Jaipur Edition

The major coverage was through Twitter , Instagram and Facebook.

KFBeer Up Jaipur Beat

A day before the event,  creatives were made, star moments from the season 1 (of this event) were posted and glimpses of the on-going preparations at the Forresta lawns and pool-side were sneak-peeked, to be shared on the restaurant’s profile as well as on other well-known( Facebook and Twitter) profiles of Jaipur. This gave the event an enthusiastic head-start and  the word spread to the target audience of the event, in this case, it was the age-group of 18-30.

When the party is about beer, a national series beer competition, awesome music, and lots of young crazy crowd, the audience across the city is already hooked to their social-media profiles for by-the-minute updates of the event. Add to it an organising partner that is the world-wide mascot for good times, Kingfisher Beer, and we are all set to drench the Pink City with beer fun and wicked games that they would remember for a long time to come!

Tweets about the uniquely named games like Beer Sucker and Beer Premiere League, their country-wide champions, previous season’s records of these games, that just had-to-be broken, kept the followers hooked. In order to participate the crowd had to tweet their names to the Kingfisher Twitter handle, and the quickest ones were next on-stage to compete.

A whole new platform was added for social-media coverage of KFBeerUp, Instagram! Videos were posted through Instagram, and photo albums were posted on on Facebook, with the official partners tagged in them.

Forresta on Twitter

The Forresta Kitchen and Bar was the page everybody was watching and an all-new country-wide followers were added to their social-media platform. Forresta added around 15 new followers after the event, on its Twitter profile!

Kingfisher ReTweet of KFBeerU

Kingfisher’s more-than energetic social-media coverage on their page, made for an excellent partnership for the night. They frequently re-tweeted Forresta’s posts.

All-in-all a great experiential-marketing experience, and we will surely be awaiting the next #KFBeerUp in Jaipur, but till then, keep partying at the Forresta Kitchen and Bar!!
