The creative industry is filled with massive global players, where only a few small agency teams tend to breakthrough. In this episode of The Lead Creative we are joined by the co-founder and Chief Creative Officer (CCO) of Think Creative Africa, Nkgabiseng Motau to talk about the role of leadership and collaboration in building a remarkable agency.

She shares some of the important lessons that came with lockdown, due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, and how they adapted to working remotely as a team. Their nimble team was already geared towards working remotely and had collaborations that enabled the transition to occur easier.

Think Creative Africa is an award-winning through-the-line creative agency that has worked with DSTV, Rand Mutual Assurance, Engen, Showmax, and other notable brands. They are one of the agencies that are challenging the status quo in the creative industry and creating remarkable work for brands across many industries.

β€œWe are always looking to solve business problems creatively. When a brief comes to us we will interrogate it to see what this means to the ordinary South African and the most unheard people country.” - Nkgabiseng Motau

This episode also looks at how bringing one’s lived experiences into creative work can add value, bring in cultural relevance and insight into the final execution.
