ONE was founded by Jonathan Lang, our multi-award winning Chief Creative Officer. Jonathan has been Creative Director at Ogilvy, Cape Town; as well as Executive Creative Director of J. Walter Thompson, Cape Town; and most recently served as Chief Creative Officer at Saatchi & Saatchi, Tel Aviv.
In his stellar career he's bagged a trove of the most coveted local and global advertising awards (as well as two black belts in karate). Jonathan has a passion for holistic thinking, and pioneering integrated media solutions.
Before launching ONE, he cherry-picked a team of specialists that he has worked with in the past as trusted colleagues and production superstars – some for almost twenty years.
Jonathan is flanked by David Gimpel, our Copy Chief and Strategist who has over 30 years of experience as a conceptual writer – winning accounts and awards for a host of local and global network agencies including Ogilvy, DDB, FCB, BBDO, Publicis, J. Walter Thompson, Young & Rubicam, King James and McCann-Ericsson.
ONE already offers a fully-fledged, integrated collective of 14 senior, multi-skilled creatives, strategists, directors, producers, animators, researchers, client liaison, project managers and support staff.
They're tech-savvy, they're motivated, and they're loving the freedom, vision, and innovation that ONE allows for, and promotes.
