HOME > Who we are > Our Story


We echo the words of Michele Ruiz who said: “If people doubt how far you can go, go so far that you can’t hear them anymore.” At Ignition we are proud of who we are and we are confident that we have an even brighter future ahead.

All because of the great people who work with us, lead us and for us. If you’re not doing so already, here’s at least four reasons why we believe you should embark on your branding journey with us.

We’ve crossed that bridge between skill and mastery, namely time… Ignition was founded more than two decades ago. Over the years, we’ve become renowned for being an industry thought leader. With a tangible passion for ideating turnkey, bespoke branding solutions – that give our clients that much-needed competitive edge. Our long-standing relations with top brands across 15+ industries – is testimony to exactly that.

We’re right behind our country’s transformation objectives… In line with the vision of our nation, our dedicated efforts to achieve diversity and transformation within our business, has earned us a Level 1 B-BBEE rating, which we’ve managed to retain, year-on-year. Close to our heart, is a focus on giving all our people equal opportunities to develop their talents fully, and help unlock their highest potential.

Whatever we deliver at a price, is worth so much more… Due to the fact that we have consistently displayed integrity in all our work, we’ve been able to develop strong relationships with a trusted network of suppliers, both locally and internationally. This has enabled us to achieve that ideal balance between quality and cost.

Poised to deliver to Africa… With branches across South Africa and on-the-ground presence in key hubs of Africa, our operations are super-efficient and we’re able to reduce our lead-times for delivery of branded goods substantially, when compared to the industry norm. We also pride ourselves on choosing locally sourced products wherever possible by using local manufacturers and supporting local businesses.
