Turnkey Brand Specialists


Marketing & PR Agency

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...

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When we approached Anago to work with us, our website was, admittedly, horribly outdated.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.
