Icon steps up global work with SA office

Event-branding specialist Icon has increased its international offering by opening an office in Johannesburg.

The venture, established with Johannesburg-based Tone Digital, a leading South African digital print and signage company, is the latest in a series of international developments for the agency.

"The South African market for high-quality event branding and signage is burgeoning, especially with the news that the country will be hosting key sporting events, including the World Cup in 2010," said Icon managing director John Francis.
