Digital Agency Creative Spark expands to Johannesburg, opens up new office in Sandton

Full-service digital marketing and development agency Creative Spark has opened up a permanent office inSandton, Johannesburg, to support its growing client base in Gauteng and complement the company’s existing Cape Town head office.

The new branch is currently being headed up by Creative Spark’s Head of Digital Marketing, Melissa Chetty, who has been with the company almost since its inception – and who has been part of the company’s growth from startup to a mid-sized digital agency.

The Johannesburg team now includes account management, digital content producers, project management staff and some development capability and supplements the 45-strong staff complement based in Cape Town.

“I’m excited to start this new chapter in our growth story. With most of our large clients based in Johannesburg, it hasn’t been a miracle that we’ve held out for so long without a permanent office here. Instead it’s been the hard work, strong communication, the dedication, the 6am flights, the incredible support team and the bigger picture,” Says Chetty.

Creative Spark is an award-winning, full-service digital agency, specialising in mobile and web development, design and digital marketing solutions for corporate and JSE-listed clients.  The agency’s client portfolio includes Philips, Kimberly-Clark, Gautrain, e.tv, Government, Ndalo Media, ABI, POWER 98.7, Hoity Toity and more.

The company also publishes the respected Burn Media sites, that include Memeburn.com and Ventureburn.com, which report on digital trends across the continent.

Matthew Buckland, the company’s MD and founder comments, “Opening a Jo’burg office marks the next evolution in Creative Spark’s growth. Most of our clients are based in Johannesburg, so it makes sense that we open an office there to ensure higher service levels. We pride ourselves as a driving agency with a penchant for the pedantic and for pushing innovation.”

Creative Spark is now five years old, with more than 45talented digital practitioners. The company has evolved into a full service digital agency offering both organic and paid digital marketing, build and content services.

The company’s digital services also include organic and paid digital marketing activities that includes, PPC, display and social digital media buying, content marketing via social media and other digital channels, through to SEO, analytics and digital strategy – including the development and design of apps and responsive websites.

“Melissa has been one of the company stalwarts, who has been there from the very beginning and witnessed the company’s growth and transformation. Our Jo’burg office is in very safe hands and we look forward to the next chapter,” adds Buckland.
