Gloo is a design agency with a digital twist. Whilst embracing traditional mediums, Gloo looks beyond to the growing digital media space. An ideas driven, design focused and strategically minded agency, leading the design landscape of the South African broadband revolution.
As media platforms merge (TV, Mobile and Internet), digital is being recognized as an increasingly effective tool within the marketing mix. With its unique experience and a fresh approach to design, Gloo is harnessing digital mediums to help their clients stand out from the crowd.
Despite its name only being born in 2005, Gloo’s talented staff has been creating world class design solutions for over 20 years. From the earliest interactive CDroms and websites in Europe, to the latest viral campaigns and interactive television solutions launching in our local market today.
Proud to be South Africa’s most creatively awarded digital agency and also recognized as the Digital Design Agency of the year, in both 2007 and 2008 by FinWeek’s prestigious agency review.
With offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg, Gloo specialises in the creation of digital campaign solutions for all sectors of business. Services include strategy, design and the technical development of solutions across the relevant digital media space.
Gloo’s innovative work can be seen on the internet, cell phones, television, broadband, PDA platforms, touch screen kiosks and on many emerging technologies. Gloo’s portfolio includes interface and communication design for interactive audio visuals, CDroms, DVDs, interactive television, website design, viral video, direct email campaigns, interactive game design, to fully functional online applications.
Clients range from small business enterprises to international companies. This wide range of work allows the team to stay at the cutting edge of industry trends, whilst simultaneously guaranteeing clients the latest creative understanding, thinking and solutions for their brand.
Gloo recognises the need and importance for clients to own communication that differentiates them from the others trading in the same media space. Importantly, Gloo also has the proven ability and experience to use the latest technologies to communicate ideas effectively to targeted audiences.
The result is a fresh and innovative approach to every project, with unique and targeted solutions, backed by strong concept – not just pretty pictures.
