Blacksmith Collective, an innovative production collective specialising in content creation and creative problem-solving, has expanded its presence across South Africa, bringing its unconventional approach to content production to the country’s biggest creative hubs.
Spear-headed by creative duo, Marcus von Geyso (Executive Creative Director) and Diogo Mendonça (Managing Director), Blacksmith Collective works with a trusted partner network of over 200 talented and creative experts across the country, specialising in everything from photography to engineering, and ready to handle virtually any brief they’re presented with.
“The past two years have been such a rollercoaster ride of growth and opportunity for us and have given us incredible insight into the various industries that we fit into,” says Diogo Mendonça. “We’ve got tons more incredible work in the pipeline and are looking forward to getting to work in more locations across South Africa.”
Blacksmith Collective has worked on a variety of exciting projects, including Castle Lite’s ‘Coldest Bar in Africa’ in Durban and, recently, an activation for Castle Lager in the Rugby World Sevens Series in Cape Town. Having just settled into new offices in Rivonia, Johannesburg, the duo have already kicked off 2018 on a high note with a number of exciting projects, including a multi-cam livestream of the #CastleLiteUnlocks event in Johannesburg, announcing Chance the Rapper as a headlining act. “Every project is unique and requires a unique set of skills and ideas to ensure we get the brief right and achieve extraordinary results for every client. Collaboration is key in the work that we do, and having our partner network to support us in conceptualising and executing incredible work is what makes Blacksmith Collective a game-changer in the South African creative landscape,” says Mendonça.
