They believe in the power of “Brutal Simplicity”. Simple ideas enter the brain quicker and stay there longer.

They are the most awarded agency in their industry in recent years, working for some of the world’s biggest brands and have proved time after time, that a Brutally Simple approach not only delivers big, market-leading creative ideas, but also generates commercial impact.

SIMPLE

Because simple ideas enter the brain quicker and stay there longer.

CREATIVE

Because creative ideas will always deliver impact.

IMPACT

Because if an idea doesn’t work or can’t be measured, then why bother?

Through its local supply partnerships, Geneva Ad® has a distinct advantage when it comes to manufacturing unique customer requirements on short lead-times, while still ensuring international standards in product quality and durability.

As Geneva AD® continues to thrive and mature they have expanded their sheet metal plant to include full CNC processes, including form cutting, punching, bending, machining, and welding of metal components. Their most recent acquisition is the largest specialized plastic laser cutter in South Africa. This allows them to do high-speed laser etching, engraving and cutting of wood and acrylic materials.

Geneva Ad® offers the following services for contract customers and bulk runs:

Woodworking services:

Geneva Ad’s Woodworking plant is fitted with the best machinery. They have a Flatbed C&C Reuttering machine that can handle a full-size board.
