NAMIBIAN advertising agency, Weathermen & Co (W&Co), is ending off the year on a high, with three new client wins – Pupkewitz MegaBuild, the Namibia Oncology Centre (NOC) and Wecke & Voigts.
Having just celebrated four years in the business, W&Co, which is a subsidiary of the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group, started off 2017 with a bang, by securing FNB and the country’s leading mobile telecommunications service provider, MTC, as clients.
The four-way pitch for Pupkewitz MegaBuild puts the agency at three out of three pitch wins for 2017.
With 35 brands in its current client base, this further cements W&Co as a force to be reckoned with, and shows its solid understanding of client markets and consumer offerings, while delivering world-class creative work.
W&Co Managing Director, Leon Crous, said the new client wins are a testament to the hard work and determination of the team, in what can be described as a dream year.
“We keep working toward becoming the most sought-after agency in Namibia; aiming to deliver not only work of a superior quality, but also adding value and growth to our clients’ businesses. We are trusted partners, working together to create a path for their business success,” Crous said.
Wecke & Voigts has tasked W&Co to assist them in strategically redefining their retail offerings, to ensure that they are still relevant for the next 15- plus years. The work will entail a combination of research studies, which will provide insights on different scenarios and options.
In addition to the research work required for Wecke & Voigts, the needs of W&Co’s new clients will range from consumer research, brand strategy development, integrated communication and brand communication, aimed at building brand affinity, more effective promotion collateral, UX solutions and web design, through to the in-store experience.
W&Co was born in the Jupiter Drawing Room in Cape Town in February 2013 and was created by a group of agency folk with extensive expertise in the management and creative execution of numerous O&L Brands.
What started as a discussion about the needs and wants of O&L with Jupiter CT, turned into a company determined to take over the world of advertising in Namibia – a company that now boasts some of the country’s largest corporates as its clientele.
