Africans are the experts on Africa.

We’re the best people to solve the challenges we face in our communities, countries and the continent. I’ve worked with these kick-ass people doing cool stuff and their brands.

Why do we need strong brands?

Social entrepreneurs are tackling tough problems head-on. They’ve got ingenious solutions, but getting those solutions out into the world demands a smart plan a strong brand.

A strong brand doesn’t just look good—

Amid the noise and commotion, it's like a unicorn at a rodeo—unique and totally unforgettable.

Articulates your goals

A few kind words, high-fives, and digital confetti that my clients have generously shared about my work.

Wanjiru is a visionary strategist who brings a fresh perspective to every project. Her deep reasearch of market trends, consumer behavior, and brand psychology sets her apart. I had the privilege of collaborating with her on a rebranding initiative, and the results were outstanding.
