so, why hellocomputer for a digital agency name?
Founded in 2005, Hellocomputer has been leading clients and consumers alike into the emerging digital landscape one step at a time, while consistently delivering captivating, award-winning campaigns.
As legend has it, the agency vision was crystallised one afternoon on Glencairn beach by our founder Mark Tomlinson. The way Mark saw it, people were going to need an agency that could help computers, and our interactions with them, feel more human and less walled-off by the onslaught of new technology.
To this day, that vision remains the driving force behind Hellocomputer’s relentless pursuit of innovation, resulting in us being recognised as South Africa’s leading digital agency.
This position was most recently cemented when the agency took the majority share of statues, as well as the much-coveted Grand Prix, at the 2011 Loerie Awards, South Africa’s largest and most-respected advertising awards show.
Currently employing a team of 80 people between our Cape Town and Johannesburg studios, Hellocomputer is constantly expanding both its capacity for servicing current clients, capturing fresh business and exploring new, exciting technologies.
Only a partnership can deliver the complete understanding of the business problem, and that’s what we’re here to solve, wrap up in explosive creative and deliver via the most relevant channels.
And if you’re wondering about our mascot, that’s HAL 9000 from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey – just the friendlier, helpful and, erm, non-lethal version…
