Friday 31 October, marked a significant new ring in the tree of growth in South Africa’s largest independent communications group, Joe Public. The agency is proudly relocating into a bespoke 3000m2, three-story office on Main Road, Bryanston. The building, a collaboration between Joe Public, Architects Boogertman & Partners and Interior Designers I4C (Interiors for Change), has been specifically created to be a collective space where all of Joe Public’s specialist businesses can meet and share inspiration.
“This is a key moment for us. To think we started off in a tiny diner on Loop Street in Cape Town and here we are a short 16 years later putting down new roots in a space that represents our entire offering. It really is a proud moment,” said Pepe Marais, Chief Creative Officer, Joe Public. “This new space is ultimately about creating greater and greater work – work that is powered by our growth purpose and that strives to deliver towards our vision of Greatness. We look forward to a new and even more exciting chapter in Joe’s story.”
“Our view is that great creativity comes from great inspiration, and that’s at the heart of our new home. It fundamentally serves the purpose of inspiring greater thinking for our clients, every day,” added Gareth Leck, CEO, Joe Public.
Included in the new building are the following collaborative and specialist disciplines: Joe Public (above-the-line agency), Ignite Joe Public (below-the-line agency), Shift Joe Public (brand communications agency), Engage Joe Public (public relations agency), Connect Joe Public (digital agency) and Think Joe Public (strategic media buying and planning unit).
Together they form Joe Public United.
