Not all creative solutions are sustainable. Derrick creates the ones that are.
Derrick was founded in 2010 and is South Africa's first advertising agency built on the principles of the Triple Bottom Line; where profit does not come at the expense of the environment or communities. Derrick's insights-driven, data-led, media-neutral approach ensures challenges are solved in a way that makes good sense now and well into the future.
We ensure our work upholds 4 tenets, a philosophy we call R.I.S.E. We believe solutions that are Relevant, Insightful, Sustainable and Effective give rise to creative work that lasts.
We deliver measurable and successful work in the disciplines of Communication and Content Strategy; Design; Video, motion graphics and editing; Creative Concepts for Advertising; and Activations, both digital and physical.
From helping to recycle thousands of tonnes of plastic bottles and encouraging consumers to save electricity, to popularising the circular economy and getting people on their bicycles, we believe in conscious collective efforts.
And our time-honoured clients like PETCO (the South African PET Plastic Recycling Company), Mpact, Oakley SA, Geberit, TransUnion and the Absa Cape Epic will attest to that.
That's all from an agency named after a type of crane, a derrick - ingeniously simple, operated by a specialised team, and can lift items to great heights. It's the perfect analogy for how we work.
