WHY “GORILLA”?

Jordan: Let’s start an agency that does really awesome Guerrilla Marketing and call it Gorilla.
Dorin: Cool!

WhAT’S THE JUNGLE?

The Jungle represents our team, our offices and the world in which we exist. Jungles are made for adventuring in and we like to think of ourselves as adventurers. 

WHY ASTRONAUTS?

Gorillas are cool. Jungles are interesting.
But when your agency mission is In Relentless Pursuit of Awesome, cool and interesting isn’t going to cut it. Astronauts are Awesome.


WE ARE A CREATIVE, DIGITAL ADVERTISING AGENCY.
WE ARE BBBEE LEVEL 2, AWARD-WINNING AND AWESOME.

The last part is subjective but important. Because…


NO ONE WANTS TO WORK WITH AN “AVERAGE” AGENCY, RIGHT?

Of course not. Average sucks. In our industry, average is the enemy.


People are ambivalent to average.

THEY FALL IN LOVE WITH AWESOME.


That is why our mission is and has always been…

IN RELENTLESS PURSUIT OF AWESOME


WE USE AWESOME TO BUILD BRAND LOVE.

We do this with:

Campaigns that exceed your users’ expectations.
Ideas that surprise and delight.
By always saying “no” to average.

Our 3 step approach


ASK WHY 


Data will always lead
to a better idea

The best creative ideas and solutions stem from a deep understanding of our consumers and their lives. To strengthen our insight development process we have partnered with TransgressiveX, a research agency that uses a proprietary combination of social science, neuroscience and smart technology to develop a deep understanding of how your consumers interact with your brand. This partnership means we offer our clients an integrated solution to consumer research, creative and campaign development. Data is gathered and processed using smart technology, providing actionable results and data at a fraction of the cost and time of traditional marketing research.

SOCIAL SCIENCE

Through 16 Drivers of Exchange, TX measures emotional and rational interactions with your brand.

NEUROSCIENCE

TX combines this with System 1 and System 2 measurement to understand both their feelings and thoughts.

SMART TECHNOLOGY

TX uses the latest technology to deliver highly visual, intuitive and easily accessible guidance with speed and efficiency.


THINK BIG 


Awesome brainstorming begins with “how cool would it be if…”

We pride ourselves on brand-driven, channel agnostic strategic and creative big thinking to address your business problems. This big thinking crosses research, strategy, ideation, channel selection and media planning.


BE AWESOME


Awesome takes effort.
These values guide our approach to everything

Exceed
Expectations

We go above and beyond to make sure your work sparkles. Sharks? No problem.

Surprise
and Delight

We’ll try make you smile.
The world needs more smiles.

Say No
to Average
