Yellowwood Future Architects

Yellowwood Future Architects

Started 13 years ago, Yellowwood was the first independent brand strategy consultancy in South Africa. Today, they are acknowledged and respected as leaders in marketing and brand strategy, serving clients across South Africa and internationally by building valuable brands for ambitious businesses.

In 2005, Yellowwood joined forces with Future Architects, and in 2008 they became a member of the TBWA/Worldwide group. These partnerships have reinforced their consultancy capability globally, and have offered an opportunity to develop and hone their skills further. Their core business focus includes offering insight, strategy and design around a brand and marketing.

Their team is an exciting mix of creative and practical personalities - 18 highly experienced individuals with backgrounds ranging from advertising and marketing to journalism and microbiology. This powerhouse team works hard to develop bold and brilliant solutions that ensure sustainable business successes for their clients.

Yellowwood works closely with Open Africa, assisting with all our design and brand needs. They recently transformed the Open Africa brand and logo into the crisp and vibrant image you see today. Kate Clayton, an Open Africa marketer who worked with them on this project, says their "big energy, genuine passion and bright insight make Yellowwood a pleasure to work with. They cut through the clutter, finding valuable nuggets and translating them into practical applications that work. Our brand and its communications have retained Open Africa's heart while feeling revitalised and beautiful."

While Yellowwood have big eyes for branding and designing, and big minds for practical solutions and strategizing, they also have big hearts, as all the work they do for Open Africa is pro bono.
