About Platypus

Platypus has always been a progressive company that innovates, and challenges traditional models and paradigms, both in the way work is produced and how the company is structured.


From their world-renowned food work to their iconic Vodafone Zoozoo commercials for India, to their involvement in the Cannes Gold-winning Carling Be The Coach campaign, they are inventive and full of positive energy and have specialised in creating smart solutions and efficiencies, while maintaining the highest production values, evidenced by the awards they have collected around the world.

With dedicated post facilities and now with an array of new directors offering different voices and fresh perspectives, Platypus offers huge value to clients not only in established forms of media, but also in the new era of emerging digital requirements. Their head office is in Cape Town, but they have recently established companies in Johannesburg and London to service their widening South African business and access clients in Europe.

Platypus has also shot in over 30 countries from New York, London and Paris to Vietnam, Bangladesh and Nigeria, creating a network of contacts across the world.
