Company Description

Nope, we are not a fish and chips shop, nor a speed dating site.
HLS is a young, hip + happening media and marketing agency. Times are changing, and so is the era of the press release & red carpet events. We intelligently craft and amplify content across multiple publishing networks. We create content that captures audiences with the right HOOK, then we select the best platforms and channels (LINE), to deliver the ultimate campaign SINKER. Cool neh?
We are only 5 years old but thanks to our global B2B Tech clients and digital offerings, added with a dash of Covid-disruption, we have been lucky enough to double in size and global reach over the last 24 months. #Blessed
Our clients include: SAP Global (USA, Europe, Africa, Middle East), RoomRaccoon, Mobiz, HyperionDev (backed by Facebook and Google), Metrofile, Concur Middle East, Meet and Code Europe, CBI (home IOT Automation), MyBeautyLuv Nutricosmetics, and many more. 

Our Pizazz and Culture:

Based in Green Point, Cape Town - we work from trendy offices (aka, our second home) and our culture + vibe is strong. Team work definitely makes the dream work! This is evident when entering the office to find our team pictures proudly displayed in the entrance area, our iconic (yellow) office decor, and fun social gatherings like pizza Fridays. 
Our agency by-line is: 'Creative Communications for Clever Brands'. And that is exactly what we do, we provide a range of communications services across multiple platforms and channels for some of the world’s biggest computer tech and software (*clever*) brands.
We have fun, but we work hard and fast, and deliver!
