Ogilvy & Mather South Africa has one of the most interesting and diverse histories of any agency.

The short clip shares a brief story of the early days of RSTM leading up to its merger with Ogilvy & Mather. The film was made as a precursor to a planned upcoming book on the early days of the agency.

This film was recently put together to show how a small creative hot shop in Cape Town, called Rightford Searle-Tripp & Makin (RSTM), became the largest communication agency in South Africa. In the 70s and 80s the agency was famous for its creative excellence, and now over 30 years later, it's still ranked number 1.

We are currently putting together a book on the agency's history - if you have anything you would like to share please email apace@wpp.com
