At Artifact Advertising, we aim to always produce work that delivers. Work that is smart and creative but gets the job done.

And how do we do that? No smoke, no mirrors, no illusions - just solid, supremely awesome advertising served with a smile. It´s this recipe for success that keeps us cooking with gas, and keeps us competing with the top advertising agencies in Johannesburg and Cape Town. And it´s what makes our clients keep coming back for more. Take a look at our most recent work and see how we make advertising look good!

We are Artifact

About Us

There are advertising agencies and then there´s Artifact Advertising - a dream of a graphic design studio that our MD Andy Taoushiani turned into a reality. Today that vision has grown into not one, but two fully-fledged integrated advertising agencies in Johannesburg and Cape Town, each offering a range of world-class communication platforms and advertising services.

Not your ordinary advertising agency

Since 1994, Artifact Advertising has been an agency that has done more than serve up fluff and big talk. Instead, we´re an ad agency that´s been fully focused on offering integrated marketing solutions. Today you hear everyone talking about full service agencies and integrated services - we´re one of the few ad agencies that have actually been doing it for 19 years, and doing it well. Some talk the talk, we walk the walk. And for us that means delivering good, solid creative work, served with skill, sound consumer insight and a smile.

That´s been our philosophy since we first opened up shop, and that´s what has led to us today having a roster of over 20 clients in a wide range of industries, a full scope of services from strategy to web design to social media marketing, and agencies in both Johannesburg and Cape Town. Proving that no matter how small you start, if you dream big enough, great things can happen.

Why everyone keeps coming back to Artifact Advertising for more

There´s a reason why we eventually outgrew our original offices, why our clients keep coming back for advertising Artifact-style, and why our employees seem incapable of leaving. It´s not the great coffee or the awesome studio vibe (although those help) - it´s because what you see is what you get. And what you get is an incredible team who love what they do, a huge passion for marketing and advertising brands in new, fresh ways, and years of experience in navigating this crazy industry called advertising. It´s what you´ll get at our offices in Johannesburg or Cape Town and it´s what you´ll get as soon as you give us a call and come on board.
