About Us

Weekday Heroes is a Johannesburg based new media agency which was established in July 2004. Frustrated with average being good enough, the founders set out to make a difference in the new media industry and do things their way. Since its inception, the founders have strived to deliver good design as a service to clients.

In the 10 years since opening its doors Weekday Heroes has grown from strength to strength. Initially working mainly on educational content development for companies such as Modlin education, Longman UK and Letts UK, the founders were able to wield the experience they gained in the educational content development industry to deliver curriculum based content that worked.

With a wealth of experience in planning, design, development and roll out, Weekday Heroes has had the good fortune of working on numerous projects for big and small clients. See the Weekday Heroes’ service offering here.
