Our true passion is in delivering great creative work that is unexpected, memorable, clever and based on strategic insights gleaned from solid research.

I have risen through the advertising ranks, starting from copywriter to group creative director, in a career spanning 20 years. In that time, I've won 19 local and international awards. For me, opening up my own agency in August 2016, seemed like a natural progression in my career. Add to that, the fact that I want to give my clients the best, unadulterated and unfiltered creative work possible, for me, there was no other way to achieve that, other than starting my own company.

We believe in, and love what we do, and offer a full-service capability that firstly, keeps costs down to a minimum, and secondly, since we have full creative control of the final work, we can actively keep a handle of the quality, the objectives that the creative work needs to to achieve. We believe in our clients business, and in maximising their ROI when they choose to invest their ad spend with us. The owner, Elton Padia is an Assegai Awards final round judge, which means that the ad industry trusts him to determine what works, and what doesn't, in a highly competitive field. We choose to work with only the very best, because we know that our clients deserve nothing less.


We provide qualitative and quantitive market research outcomes based on carefully selected variables that give us the insights we need to create successful, response-driven advertising.

We guide our clients to fish where the fish are - by carefully creating a media strategy, which is informed by the publications, media channels and activities that our client's target audience interact with. A streamlined, targeted is approach is favoured against the more expensive 'shotgun' approach, which is wasteful, and, in our opinion, lazy thinking.

We are a full-service agency that offers the following:

• Creative direction
• Art Direction
• Graphic design (logo design, signage, digital art)
• Copywriting
• Photography
• Proofreading
• Annual report writing (by a GRI-Certified writer)
• Radio, TV and social media video creation (includes scriptwriting, production and media placement)
• Social media management
• Activations and promotions
• Public Relations
• Desktop Publishing
• Illustration
• Print supervision
• Direct Response marketing (mail drops, emailers, CRM campaigns)
• Integrated, Above-The-Line and Below-The-Line campaigns
• Media strategy, buying and placement
• Advertising and marketing research and strategy...

and, anything that's not listed here, we can make happen.
