The Media Image was originally founded in South Africa by Grant Macfarlane in February 2008. Grant then opened up a UK office a year and half latter. Fast forward to 2017 and The Media image is now a multi award winning digital agency with a team of 25 people in its London head quarters , 10 people in its new Cape Town office and a growing presence in New York to service its US clients some of which include Avon and Forex.com.
Founder and CEO , Grant Macfarlane said, ” I am incredibly excited to reopen an office in South Africa where in 2008 I took the step to start what is today one of the UK’s top independent digital agencies. I have to pinch myself sometimes when I look at the growing list of clients we work with across the globe and I am truly lucky to have such a talented bunch of people that make The Media Image so successful.
We have hired extremely smart maths and stats grads in Cape Town to help support the front-line staff in the UK and US. They are smart , hungry and get exposure quickly to the best technology, processes and people. Literally from day one they work on clients with monthly budgets of 20 + million rand and so quickly learn and grow. The Media Image was born in Africa and now returns to its African roots.
