About us

It's not the size of your agency
that counts...

We are the Autonomous Republic. An independent integrated marketing brand agency based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Since 2013, the Autonomous Republic agency team has been helping others realise their sovereignty, through our services, by building independent brands, with clearly-defined purposes, and customer-magnetised values.

Our specialised creative agency has a big heart that looks at advertising, marketing, branding, social, digital and experiential holistically, focusing solutions that integrate only fruitful channels.

We believe that working directly with experienced creative and strategy is what provides instant answers, faster service and stronger partnerships with our clients.

We don’t dance around any of the issues, or claim we know or can do “everything”, but we can provide you with the truth and results-driven solutions to build your brand into something meaningful, bold, emotive or just darn epic.

Our philosophy

Brands deserve candid honesty if we want them to succeed.
Our philosophy is simple; get $#!± done.

create value
make it ownable
!  make it remarkable
± make a net positive difference


In today’s unstable business environment getting $#!± done means creating more than just airy-fairy ideas to win awards. It means achieving the objectives, with impact, on time, on a budget, and without fuss.
