about string

A specialist media, design and publications agency with 20 years’ experience


Established in 1997, String is a Cape Town-based strategic communications consultancy specialising in clear, engaging content and design for print and digital media.

String has produced a range of material, from coffee-table books, to magazines, posters, brochures, multi-media tookits and websites, portals, e-newsletters, digital publications, research reports and policy manuals, as well as developing brand identities and guidelines for clients. We also undertake complex technical editing, research and strategy development. 

String is a level 4 BEE company and is 100% women owned. Started 20 years ago, much of String’s work has been at the interface of government and citizens, with an emphasis on democracy and development, but has broadened to encompass work for academic institutions, civil society organisations, international funding agencies and the private sector.
