We partner with good businesses to build great brands.

When we started in 2015, the desire was to do incredible design work for ambitious companies. And for the last seven years, we have successfully traveled that journey working with some of Africa’s influential companies and brands.

Today, FourthCanvas has grown into a strategy-led brand design agency that partners with honest business leaders who want to change the world with their ideas and build a compelling brand while at it.

Our team — made up of an open, warm, and collaborative culture — is a talented mix of explorers, thinkers, artists, and builders who make up an assembly of Africa’s finest brand leaders and developers.

We believe organizations can achieve a lot more if their brand communication embodies who they are and is endearing to their people. We come with the external perspective and expertise but it all begins with your mission and there is only so much we can do alone.

We call it “true partnership” because that’s what it is, and to us this means more than another great-sounding value proposition.

A process that delivers

We guide businesses on the path to becoming brands, making it crystal clear that true transformation goes beyond the quality of brand assets and narratives.
