The Jupiter Drawing Room (Johannesburg), a long-established and robust advertising agency, was voted joint Agency of the Decade in 2010 by AdReview.
Founded by Renee Silverstone and Graham Warsop in 1989, the two grew the business from a small boutique advertising agency into one of South Africa’s largest advertising groups.
Today it is headed up by Managing Partner Danielle Sneiders and Creative Partner Tom Cullinan, and has been successfully structured to handle a diverse number of accounts and accommodate the need for agile implementation of high-end creative work. Its business units are multi-skilled and cross-functional to ensure faster turnaround times and proactive problem solving, meaning it is a creative, beyond-the-line communications brand.
Proof of the agency’s outstanding creative abilities is reflected in the range of categories for which the agency has won international awards: 27 Cannes Lions, 21 Clios, 17 One Show Pencils, 24 London International Statues and 79 Medals at The New York Festival, including Best of Show for Magazine in 2001.
It is also the only agency to feature as one of ‘The World’s Leading Agencies’ for eight consecutive years. Our local awards consist of: 196 Loeries, 26 Midas, 6 APEX, 1 Sports, 19 Eagles, 14 D&AD and 98 Ad of the Month Awards.
It recently celebrated being awarded the Barclays Global Supplier of the Year, which comes on the back of recognition within their internal marketing awards programmes for work done on Absa. These awards include Most Collaborative; Overall Award for Bravery; Best Owned Film; and Best Sponsorship.
The agency produces work in all major media categories and across all industry sectors.
In a time when there has never been a greater choice of products, or such a diverse range of media in which to promote them, it really has come down to the survival of the smartest. The need for powerful, relevant, compelling and integrated communications has never been greater. On the positive side - it is the ultimate challenge. The Jupiter Drawing Room (Johannesburg) is perfectly positioned to deliver this.
