The Media Image was originally founded in South Africa by Grant Macfarlane in February 2008. Grant then opened up a UK office a year-and-a-half later. Fast forward to 2017, and The Media image is now a multi-award winning digital agency with a team of 25 people at its London headquarters and 10 people at its new Cape Town office. In addition to this, The Media Image has a growing presence in New York to service high profile US clients, some of which include Avon and Forex.com.
Founder and CEO, Grant Macfarlane said, "I am incredibly excited to reopen an office in South Africa, where in 2008 I took the step to start what is today one of the UK's top independent digital agencies. I have to pinch myself sometimes when I look at the growing list of clients we work with across the globe and I am truly lucky to have such a talented bunch of people that make The Media Image so successful."
"We have hired some extremely smart maths and stats graduates in Cape Town to help support the front-line staff in the UK and US. They are smart, hungry and get exposure quickly to the best technology, processes and people. From day one they are able to work on clients with monthly budgets of 20+ million rand and subsequently learn and develop quickly. The Media Image was born in Africa and is pleased to return now to its African roots."
