Brainwave Communications - Differently Like Minded


Brainwave is where quiet souls collide with the unapologetically outspoken, giving rise to a balanced space where laughter, family and fantastic ideas thrive. These principles bind us in our uniqueness.


To Love is to Know Us

Our brand building ethos goes a little something like this, ‘Ain’t no brand big enough. Ain’t no product small enough. Ain’t no client far enough. To keep us from breaking creative boundaries.’

We are a local, solutions oriented Communications Agency with a clear understanding of the market. Our work is our inspiration meaning you are our inspiration, our valued partner. With integrity in our hearts, great ideas on our minds and love for our craft we aim to creatively please.

We are a member of ICOM, the world’s largest independent network of advertising and marketing communications agencies as well as the Association of Practitioners in Advertising (APA).

Here, everybody has a chance to be somebody. Our diversely gifted team is focused on turning your brand from something to everything. That is… a great brand that knows just what to say, when to say it and how to say it.

We think, speak, drink in a medley of colour and sound. We’re passionately proud about the things we do and it shows in how we do them. We’re dedicated to the creative cause.

Translated to English, we used the Swahili/Slang phrase ‘Usitupe Mbao’ in all its glory i.e. to urge subscribers not to sleep on their chance at millions, not to literally throw away their 20 bob and as a visual cue
