Big Things From Small Beginnings

What started as a three-person operation in a small office space in Dunkley Square, Cape Town, has grown into one of the most exciting and innovative ad agencies in South Africa.

Founded by Lisa Hamilton (now Currey), Hamiltons has totally changed the rules of the retail advertising game.

One year after its inception, Hamiltons signed on to help foster the growth and widen the exposure of a young retail company with only a handful of stores. Now, 20 years later, Food Lover’s Market (originally Fruit & Veg City) is one of the largest retailers in South Africa.

The continuing partnership between Hamiltons and FLM has become a glowing example of what a successful working relationship between client and agency should look like..

We’re proud of the fact that we’re a company founded by a woman. In the traditional “man’s world” of advertising, Hamiltons prides itself in bucking the status quo. Hamiltons is predominantly comprised of a female workforce, from top to bottom. Of course, we have a few strapping lads who kick butt with us too.

Why get someone else to do something for you, when you can just do it yourself? Well, at Hamiltons we like to operate a little differently to most other ad agencies. We like to do it all. From print to radio, store design to events planning, our team covers all the bases. Oh, we also have a production studio where we produce weekly TV ads and do our own in-house photography shoots, but no biggie.

We are a dedicated unit of go-getters with a can-do attitude that will solve any marketing challenge your business might have. Get in touch – it might just change your life.
