Welcome to John Brown South Africa

Hello. We are John Brown Media, part of a leading global content marketing agency. Our passion is to help brands engage with their customers across a multitude of platforms, from digital to print. We’ve been creating award-winning brand synergies since 2007, and haven’t slowed for a coffee break yet.

John Brown Media is part of a leading global content marketing agency, with offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg. We create engaging branded content across print and digital, and with offices in London, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Dubai, our network provides access to global best practice and expertise coupled with best-of-breed local talent and knowledge.

John Brown launched in South Africa in 2007 to publish Pick n Pay's Fresh Living magazine, with just a handful of talented staff members. Since then, we've grown our blue-chip client portfolio to include Edgars, Discovery and Spur; increased our staff complement to more than 60; expanded office space in Cape Town; opened a Johannesburg office and launched a fully-fledged digital division.

Core to our continuous growth has been the ability to attract some of the best minds in publishing. We believe that the starting point for producing brilliant content lies with hiring the best editorial and design expertise, and in ensuring that content is fed to relevant platforms, in context, where consumers choose to engage with it. For us, the user experience is key so content is specifically crafted to suit the platform, resulting in concentrated customer dialogue and commercial success.
