Hand-held branding

Branding or rebranding your business can feel incredibly overwhelming. What am I trying to say about my brand? What kind of logo do I like? Do I really need a brand purpose? Are business cards even a thing anymore? What the hell is WordPress?

There is a wealth of creative talent in South Africa, with a plethora of excellent designers and developers to choose from. But few will feel like an extension of your team, protecting your brand as if it was his or her own. Not many will get to know you and your customers personally, in order to position your brand as the best possible choice to fulfil their needs.
With Branduo, you’ll work hand-in-hand with our founder, Jenni. You’ll quickly feel as though she’s been part of the furniture forever. She’ll learn everything she possibly can about your business and use these insights to create an astute brand strategy, which she’ll help you execute every step of the way.

Jenni will listen to your thoughts and ideas and turn them into stories that’ll cultivate a connection with your customers. She’ll hand-pick the best designers, developers and marketers to meet your creative needs, new brand personality and budget. She’ll make an otherwise overwhelming process a genuinely manageable, valuable and exciting one.

Who’s behind Branduo?

Branduo is owned and managed by Jenni Benatar. From a young age, Jenni realised that deep insights could fuel deep connections. After graduating with a postgraduate degree in marketing from the University of Cape Town, Jenni worked across the arenas of brand building, strategic communications, design and business development. Almost a decade of 8am-5pm’s later, she took a leap of faith and founded a boutique agency of her own in a home office filled with greenery, flexibility and dog-hair.

Jenni loves nothing more than diving into an organisation’s deepest corners, working with business founders to give words to their ideas, turning bullet-points into engaging stories and translating goals into actionable roadmaps.

She is a natural project-manager, leaving no stone unturned and infuses her strategic brand workshops with humour, empathy and clarity.
