After a phenomenally successful taking at this year’s Loerie Awards show, Shift Joe Public have catapulted into the top three list of the overall official Loeries rankings released on 16 October 2014, placing the specialist agency as the number one brand communications agency in South Africa.
Having scooped four Golds, two Silver birds and a craft certificate, the brand communications agency celebrated wins on clients One School at a Time for their project Fonts for the Future as well as South African Marine Safety Authority (SAMSA) for their Annual Report design. The success of the Fonts for the Future project meant that One School at a Time was also ranked the second most successful brand, second to FCB’s Coca-Cola.
“For a small creative team of seven people, we have worked extremely hard this year to deliver exceptional creative ideas for our clients and we are proud to share this achievement. Being ranked the top Communication Design agency is testament to the work we do and we hope to deliver on even greater ideas that will inspire the world of design,” commented Executive Creative Director, Maciek Michalski, Shift Joe Public.
The official rankings also gave recognition to those that worked on these great pieces of work. The agency’s Simone Rossum was ranked as the top Creative Director with Maciek Michalski placed second on the Executive Creative Director ranking overall.
