By 05/02/2016Awards

We’ve kicked off 2016 with a victory for Namibian communication.

We focused our resources, found our target, took the shot and on the 21st of April 2016, at the African Excellence Award Winners’ Gala Dinner, we’ll bring home to Namibia the first African Excellence Award.

The first African Excellence Award was awarded to Ogilvy and Mather Namibia on Friday, 29 January 2016 in the Corporate Advertising category at the first AFRICAN EXCELLENCE AWARDS, part of the INTERNATIONAL EXCELLENCE AWARDS. This is the first year that the Excellence Awards were introduced to Africa, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and North America.

It was our “Brandulance” concept that put Namibian innovative thinking on the map.

Our truly Namibian agency was also listed as a finalist in the Brand Relationship category for the same entry. The Excellence Awards have recognised this dynamic agency for its brand insight, depth of marketing thought, crafting of decisive strategies and groundbreaking creativity.

We offer a full brand service to clients across the board; from healthcare, FMCG, government and the private sector. Our disciplines and expertise have grown from a traditional range that includes business development strategy, marketing communications, corporate branding, to offering a range of digital services that include website development, social media management and digital strategy. Evolving with the marketplace, we remain at the forefront of service delivery and digital expertise, gearing it with sales intuition to get your brand back to full health.

David Ogilvy famously described Ogilvy & Mather as “the teaching hospital of the advertising world” in a memo to the Group’s Board of Directors back in 1978. Using this idea that the Brandulance was created out of our red Ogilvy Van. Maybe you’ve seen it around town, on its way to any number of advertising or marketing emergencies, or en route to rescue a brand in need of assistance. Give us a call, we specialise in brand surgery, and we’re very, very good.
