WHAT WE DO
about

Marketing, PR & Media Company

Anago is a turnkey brand strategy company based in Cape Town. We are passionate about excellence and helping take brands to the next level.

Anago is a Greek word that means to lead up, to launch forth, to loose, or to put out to sea. In Japanese it’s the word for saltwater eels. Of course we mean it in the Greek sense, but we do rather enjoy seafood...

We ensure your marketing and communications activities always keep ‘the big picture’ top of mind.

SME Focus

While aiming for excellence, we also know how to work within a budget.

Expert Input

Internationally Relevant

November 2017

When we approached Anago to work with us, our website was, admittedly, horribly outdated. They quickly understood our needs and revamped the website in a way that has made it internationally relevant. We look forward to working with them again!

Insatiable Determination

January 2010

Stephen’s insatiable determination and slicing intellect became non-negotiables in the success of our projects. And his astounding capacity to switch quite ambidextrously from striking creativity to logical ingenuity left me with very little to manage and very much to admire.
