WHO IS WOLF & HALO?

We’re a group of like-minded creatives who came together with a common goal: to create the go-to all-in-one agency for businesses wanting to grow. With decades of industry experience between us, spanning multiple disciplines and skill sets, we provide a comprehensive service covering the whole marketing stack. Bespoke animated explainer videos, motion graphics, live video editing, digital campaign management, website development, SEO – we’ve got you covered.


OUR CORE PRINCIPLES

PERSONAL TOUCH

We love what we do, and we try to make that obvious in everything we work on. Being qualified visual artists also means we have a high regard for concept.

EFFICIENCY

We don’t waste time. Our workflow is clean and precise. Multiple channels of communication also means that you’re always in the loop.

TRANSPARENCY

We try to make everything we do understandable, even digital ads: a 24/7 live dashboard & monthly reporting mean that you know exactly what’s going on.


THE STORY SO FAR

We’ve come a far way, and have a much further way to go.

Morné & Handré working something out.

Founded near the end of 2015 by three friends, Wolf & Halo started out on a couple of desks in another company’s offices, out of the growing need to have a dedicated team creating 3D content for clients like Media24 and Shoprite-Checkers.

Handré de Jager was the first animator and 3D designer the three recruited, before recruiting Morné, our current Director of Content, as the second. In 2017, after growing our client base for a while, and after moving into offices of their own, they recruited Haiko as illustrator & web developer. Before long, Handré and Morné had taught Haiko to animate, so he was pulled onto the ever-growing animation projects.

Near the end of 2017, then-Managing Director Pieter Lüdeke (far left) had been outsourcing digital marketing work to a freelancer, and realized that it could be brought in-house. So Haiko (second from right) undertook the training and certifications needed to take over. Since November 2017, under his directorship, Wolf & Halo has managed almost R5 million worth of ad spend for over 40 companies worldwide.

Sadly, on 4 November 2019, Handré (far right) passed away from cancer. This is why Wolf & Halo dedicates the month of November every year to his memory.

The gang at the end of 2018.
Steph joins!

Largely because of this, the company was restructured at the start of 2020, with one of the founders leaving, and Pieter stepping down as MD. This put Morné in charge of all things content, and Haiko in charge of marketing campaigns (though there is a lot of crossover work between them).

To accommodate the growing demand for digital marketing, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic, halfway through 2021 we finally recruited Stephanie Niemandt, our resident all-round marketing superstar. Since she joined the company, Wolf & Halo has been making strides towards reaching our goal to become the go-to all-in-one digital agency. Watch this space!
