Together We Rise

Together We Rise

iKhokha is a South African fintech company redefining the way SMEs do business through mobile innovation. We created a styled and heart-warmingly humorous campaign of work that sees Senzo & Siyanda, a daddy and daughter bakery team, passionately motivate small business owners to “rise” together and grow their businesses with the help of iKhokha. A series of short teaser films, supported by product-led posters, led up to short standalone product and brand spots before breaking the main brand commercial, again supported by print executions showcasing Senzo & Siyanda as Ikhokha’s “brand ambassadors”. This project had some outstanding performance, great comedic timing and gorgeous cinematography and art department.
