The Evolution of TheAntsNest.com
The Ants Nest was founded in 1998 as a below-the-line advertising and design agency in Cape Town,
Early company policy stated never to say "No" to a client's creative need. This led to The Ants Nest offering an increasingly wider variety of services. Any projects that couldn't be handled in-house, were outsourced to a rapidly growing network of creatives.
Before long we found that the collaboration with our constantly expanding team of creatives, had not only expanded our project scope but also resulted in stimulating our creativity.
To enable more designers to find "creative freedom" we created an online environment, which facilitates a communication channel between clients around the globe and our network of freelance creative South Africans (Worker Ants).
In 1999 Client Services staff, were set up in London and Amsterdam, to facilitate a more personal interaction between foreign Clients and our creative teams in South Africa. Throughout 2000/1 we ran a number of international jobs through the newly formed beta website, before we decided to officially announce our arrival and the evolution of the creative industry as we know it!
TheAntsNest.com launched (officially) on the 1st of September 2001.
Since launching, TheAntsNest.com has strived to remain a non-main stream, somewhat "underground" community. A place where our Worker Ants can escape to, to play with their creativity.
Throughout the evolution of this concept/company, we have realised that TheAntsNest.com (as a website and company) will constantly be evolving, adjusting to the ever changing needs of its users.
