Strategy

Without strategic alignment, we would be creating meaningless wallpaper. JAW ensures that all the creative produced, works hand-in-hand with the marketing strategy to MAKE AN IMPACT!

null

Branding

Your brand’s image creates a first impression, as important as a person’s appearance when we first meet them. JAW creates visual identities that reflect both the service and heart the brand.

Advertising

What good is a message if it isn’t received? Through media partnerships, JAW ensures the correct media placement for you message. MAKING SURE YOU ARE HEARD.

null

Internalisation

A company’s most important clients are its employees. Without true belief in a product, how can one successfully sell it? JAW creates campaigns to create a sense of belief, partnership and ownership.

We can’t deny the profound impact the digital environment is making on advertising and the amazing platforms it provides. JAW’s online gurus are constantly exploring new ways of maximising online exposure.

An opportunity to MAKE CONNECTIONS! JAW offers design services for events and conferences, from websites through to event collateral and videos. We partner with top event companies to deliver one-of-a-kind experiences

From TV and radio commercials, to high-end videos and
animations. JAW’s in-house production arm, Breadbin Productions (run by award-winning director Garon Campbell) brings our ideas to life!

Our Approach

Our approach is a marriage of strategy and creative, to deliver cool sh*t with brain.

The JAW process for every project is therefore one of collaboration, consideration, insight and creativity.

MULL

We think. We chat. We think. We eat. We think. We shower. We think. We wake up at 4am and make sure we have a notepad ready for all the thinking. We immerse ourselves in the brand and the challenge.

ASK AND ANSWER

Mom always told us that there’s no such thing as a stupid question.

You know your brand, so we ask you. The market thinks they know, so we ask them. We research and ask – so that we can answer the consumers’ questions before they think of them, through strategic solutions based on sound insight.

null

KICK ASS

Strategy and Creative work hand-in-hand to develop messages and mechanisms that resonate with the consumer on a real level. We package our message with appropriately gorgeous wrapping to delight, entice and surprise the recipient.

null

EVALUATE

Mom also told us that no one is perfect. It’s important to take stock and reflect. Campaign audits ensure that we celebrate successes and learn from our mistakes, and adjust accordingly.

“It’s not about having time, it’s about making time”

Why do anything in life if you’re not going to do it properly?

We always MAKE time!

Charity Work

A major part of our business is our CSI initiative called Designed To Change, which Jeni-Anne co-founded 3 years ago, which aims to

“Help People Who Help People”.

Charity Design Marketing Creative
Designed To Change South Africa

We call on all creatives to volunteer their time to provide their particular set of skills (Liam Neeson-style). Designed To Change joins forces with creatives and corporates who have the skills or resources to help us build charity brands. We create strong visual identities and campaigns that effectively position NPOs with a credible and professional image for gaining the trust and assurance of prospective funders/supporters.

As part of this initiative, if JAW works on any CSI initiative for a corporate, we pledge 10% of profits to go back into studio to help a smaller charity through Designed To Change.

If you would like to get involved or know of a charity in need, please get in touch on info@designedtochange.org

Brands

It’s all about the chemistry, really… magic happens when the instruments work together or the flavours mix.

JAW prides itself on mixing with the right people (we take a lot of advice from our moms). We become invested in the brands we serve, as we become committed to the people we work with. We make a point of not getting mixed up in the wrong crowd. No fit, no go.
