About Our


Our company story

The Media Factory is a location based out-of-home media company that is driven by passion and innovation. We are a team of young, enthusiastic professionals that take pride in our excellent customer service and high-quality product offerings.

Our History

The Media Factory was founded in South Africa by young, entrepreneurial minds who realised there was a need to move away from the one-size-fits-all approach in the out-of-home media market.

By putting a premium on service, The Media Factory now focuses on providing a uniquely-designed strategy for clients that is specifically tailored to meet their needs. We have carried this thinking into everything we do and it has manifested into our company ethos. With this solid foundation, we have evolved into the leaders of prime location based out of home media, with our Hologram Solutions and an LED Display Network , available at some of South Africa’s most iconic sites, retail nodes and events.

Kirtanya van Tonder

Audi Brand & Marketing Manager

"Thank you team at The Media Factory for an amazing piece of technology that worked brilliantly on the Audi exhibition stand stand to showcase Vorsprung durch Technik. The hologram was eyecatching and attracted a lot of attention. It has been a pleasure working with the Media Factory team and I am sure this will be the first of many projects together."

"We acquired the services of TMF for one of our latest activations at this year's Miss South Africa pageant. Their custom LFP hologram caused quite the stir amongst consumers at the event. It was a unique way to attract attention and to deliver on our brand messaging. The team was professional and handled the brief meticulously - on time and on budget. "
