One of our highlights for 2014 was the launch of Wallop! a book written by Toni Younghusband. The story conveys the energy and joy of Bob Rightford and his fellow advertising luminaries, Brian Searle-Tripp and Roger Makin, as they took the South African advertising scene by storm. Watch the launch of the book here:
Who would have guessed that the little yellow agency named Rightford, Searle-Tripp & Makin, born in the midst of the Apartheid era, would grow into one of the most successful agencies not only in South Africa, but within the Ogilvy & Mather global network.
We have a lot to thank Bob Rightford for, because let’s face it, we wouldn’t be where we are today if it weren’t for him. So it was a proud moment when others also acknowledged his achievements. On the 26th of November 2014, Bob Rightford was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the AdFocus Awards.
