About Us

Formed on April Fool's Day in 2006 by Nicole Wills, Mike Ellman-Brown and Darryl Cowling, STICK is a multi-disciplinary, outcome-obsessed communication and design company dedicated to the creation of intelligent, persuasive selling ideas for some of South Africa's most loved brands.

We believe that it's our terrier-like enthusiasm that allows us to deliver outstanding, intrusive creativity timeously and at a price that is fair to both our clients and ourselves.

"Why did we call it STICK?" we hear you say... well, we like to think the name refers to (cue the orchestra) our uncanny ability to uncover those massively memorable ideas that stick to the hearts and minds of the wallet-toting consumers of the brands that our clients place in our care, creating management-pleasing sales graphs and career-rocketing results (phew, how's that for a sales pitch).

We are extremely proud to list Rand Merchant Bank, RMB Private Bank, Coca-Cola, Nestle Ice Cream, Pfizer, Ashburton, Glaceau Vitaminwater, Nando's, KWV, Dulux and Comedy Central as brands to which we have been able to apply our skills.

There are fourteen of us and STICK is a Level 2 BEE compliant company.
