Let's be friends
We build powerful brands & authentic customer experiences
We’re not just your average ad agency, marketing maven or events company, and there’s certainly nothing average about the way we think, do and operate.
We are Calypso – an amalgamation of creative sparks, good-natured sarcasm, design genius, an abundance of post-it notes, pantone pride, brand love, inside jokes, and meticulous planning strategies for literally everything (even the office fridge is organised by colour). Our get-the-job-done attitude ensures that we always deliver, and the only thing we never joke about is deadlines.
Calypso offers strategic & creative solutions, designed to give your personal or business brand that competitive edge and #genius-factor.
"Let me start by saying thank you, it is truly incredible that you have been able to tap into energy without meeting me in person. You have spoken to my soul and for that I am grateful. There is no journey without the help of incredible people, and I am honoured that you and the team are walking my path with me."

They are also very thorough and listen to exactly what I was looking for. I could have used any company that is local to me in London but as I had seen some of their work I decided to go with them.

Andrea Hirschhorn - Owner/Founder
Deon and I worked with Tanya Vieira for many years. When she decided to elevate her business and established Calypso Creative Agency, we had no hesitation in signing with them to manage our social media marketing strategy. She has surrounded herself with a team of consummate professionals like herself, that take the time to really get to know your business and objectives going forward. They are innovative in their approach and never leave their customer in the dark. Schedules of planned posts for a full month are received well in advance for approval and comment and I have never had to change anything. “Absolutely love it, please proceed” is the norm. They are worth every penny and I would highly recommend them to any company wanting to take their business to the next level. Professional, dynamic, innovative and efficient. Calypso is all this and more."
Deon & Carol Swarts - Owners of The Cake Genie
