All branding agencies are not created equal. Neither are all brands. Engage Brandcraft was born out of disillusionment with the state of the brand development and design in South Africa. Founders, Chris and Ian (a young strategist and designer respectively), found themselves uninspired by their particular industries – both of which were categorised by high prices and egos and were low on creative excellence and results. Combining their skills, vision and passion, they formed a loose collaboration of skilled Brandcrafters and set out to change things one brand at a time.
Their combined mission was to bring world-class, creative business branding solutions to South African start-ups, new ventures and small to medium enterprises. Since then Engage has grown both in terms of scope, team and vision. Although we now serve much bigger businesses too, our spirit and approach remains unchanged. Our recipe? A focused team of strategic and creative brandcrafters who work in teams and directly with clients (there are no ‘account managers’ here) to deliver meaningful, forward-thinking and effective brands.
