About us

Africa was created with the differentiated proposal of handling fewer clients with exclusive and dedicated teams. This proposition is based on a rule that we offer direct participation and involvement of agency partners throughout the process in order to build brands, serve clients and grow their businesses.

Africa focuses on Brazil but has an international mindset and its mission is to help clients to have global and strong brands. We create advertising that generates hits and sell.

The name Africa was chosen to be understood internationally and also to pay homage to the people who lent its culture to Brazil. Africa is known for its creativity, impactful and memorable work and results delivered for its selected clients.

Africa grew fast and quickly became one of the largest advertising agencies in the country. Africa today keeps dedicated multidisciplinary teams and experts in several key areas of creativity. All of them working together to achieve the best results for clients.
