GALLERY 24: Cell C - Various

Cell C is South Africa's 3rd cellular network, entering a fierce market dominated by the two biggest cell networks. The agency chose to pitch Cell C as the consumer champion with 'tell someone' expressing our innate need to communicate - especially when something big, eventful, emotional or shocking happens.
