We enjoy the digital world

Unwembi Communications (Pty) Ltd is a leading, digital development and communications house based in South Africa, with a reputation for delivering outstanding digital communication outcomes for clients in public and the private sector.

Established in 1997, Unwembi emerged at a time of exciting change and innovation in South Africa, fuelled by the new democracy and the explosion of the Internet. Unwembi’s extensive client portfolio includes public and private sector organisations, including government agencies and JSE-listed companies.

Since launch, we’ve worked tirelessly with clients to overcome the challenges faced in the rapidly evolving South African digital landscape, but most importantly to ensure they are well placed to take advantage of technologies that fulfil their communication requirements.

With regional offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg, we are soon expanding our offices into Southern Africa.
