WE SELL

No matter how quickly communication evolves, we have one responsibility: we sell. Everything else is in support.

TO DO THIS

We combine proven talent in close client collaboration.
We see no division between the team and the challenge.
Each project deserves a bespoke solution.

We are 100% committed to diversity.
DUKE is independent and LEVEL 1 B-BBEE.

WE WORK FOR RESULTS

Hot ideas are only good if they yield hard results.
The kind you can take to the bank. We know what works.
We avoid what doesn't. If we get the thinking right,
implementation is easy and results follow.

How?

CREATION

We like to work on everything. To make it easier, we strive to come up with ideas that generate integrated brand juggernauts. In other words, strong, compelling ideas that are useful and which can be applied wherever the consumer wants to be.

And because not everyone can do this, we try very hard to work with only the very best talent available. In the end it's faster, it's cheaper and best of all, it ensures ideas we put forward actually work.

8766

We inhabit an always-on world. 8766 is the number of hours in a 365.25-day year*. Whether through content, social media, or integrated advertising, every one of those hours needs to be filled. We work with clients, sponsors, media owners and external creative collaborators to provide involving, relevant and sticky assets for brands and businesses.

*Not adjusted for Leap years.

SIX DEGREES

As a formidable B2B initiative, Six Degrees connects heads of companies to help solve business problems. These new alliances foster new product concepts, fresh solutions to old challenges, develop businesses and liberate whole new areas of enterprise.

Over the years we have been fortunate to work with some very fine companies. We've learnt stuff. Mostly about what works and what doesn't. We also know that every day delivers fresh challenges and opportunities to a business. Nothing makes us hungrier or happier helping our clients meet them.
