THE HORDE

MARKETING SPECIALISTS

There’s no “I” in hivemind… Oh, wait!

Brand Candy is a marketing agency in Durban, South Africa. Our team of over 25 marketing specialists and creatives are client-objective obsessed.

The story of

the collective brains behind our brand

Two marketing teams, Rubio Communications and Kablooey Studios, discovered they shared an insatiable hunger—a hunger for results.

These marketing specialists started collaborating regularly and realised their combined services were stronger. In March 2016, they officially came together as Brand Candy.

Brand Candy offers everything you need to build a strong brand that meets your business objective: graphic design, traditional marketing, digital and social media marketing, and website design and development. All under one roof, for your convenience.

We are marketing specialists driven to help clients achieve their marketing goals. Brand Candy is for forward thinking businesses that want to be etched into the brains of their customers and clients.

MEET THE (MOSTLY) HUMAN TEAM

OF MARKETING SPECIALISTS

In our studio, we value a meeting of the minds and in-person collaboration. We’re proudly in-office and can be found gathered around the coffee machine or enjoying lunch together at our kitchen counter when we’re not hard at work.
