About Yellowwood

Who We Are

Yellowwood is Africa’s leading marketing strategy consultancy. We help our clients grow their businesses by offering strategic focus, deep market and customer insight, and specialist design services. We solve marketing’s most complex problems and help clients build brands that connect with the people who will drive their business growth.

Yellowwood was founded in 1997 by branding expert and legend Andy Rice. Future Architects was founded by Kay Nash and in 2005 Yellowwood and Future Architects became one, establishing South Africa’s first independent marketing strategy consultancy to provide expert, impartial and media-agnostic advice for clients on how best to grow their brands.

Throughout our eighteen years we have deepened our specialist capabilities and grown our footprint. Today, we are closer to a business consultancy than a typical branding firm, using our understanding of human psychology, marketing strategy and design to ensure business growth. We serve clients across Africa and the globe from our offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Nairobi.
