Been there done that. Since 1969. Still doing it.

YESTERDAY

Our story begins in 1969 in Johannesburg when Paul Middleton Snr. established his agency aptly named Paul Middleton Advertising. He handed over the reins to his son and namesake in 1989 with the agency’s name being changed in 1990. Steeped in client service, our heritage sets us apart. Just as it was yesterday, today you will find Ebony + Ivory shaping the future in creative business.
