About One Part Scissors


Noticing the need for creative, world-class design as well as reliable client service that companies could trust, One Part Scissors began in April 2002, and in the past decade, OPS has expanded its offering to accommodate all our clients needs in the areas of Branding, Web, Advertising, and Design.


Since its inception in 2002, we have seen the rise (and fall) of full Flash websites. We've seen the emergence of content management systems, and some years later, the rise of good content management systems that are actually useful! We've seen the meteoric rise of Social Media which has provided a fantastic opportunity for our clients to brand themselves and communicate with their customers.

With each new trend and every opportunity to develop interesting, creative work, One Part Scissors has acquired the necessary skills to provide excellent branding for our clients.


There are more opportunities for branding and communicating online than ever before. However, the traditional media is still extremely effective and very useful - from brochures and print advertising, to in-store point-of-sale design and television advertising. One Part Scissors is perfectly skilled and suited to provide our clients with design excellence in all these fields.

One Part Scissors is an Accredited Advertising Agency, which means we are able to design your advertising, assist you in planning your campaigns, and book the media space in everything from outdoor, print publications, to radio and television for you. We also provide our clients with assistance in setting up and planning extremely targeted and trackable online advertising campaigns.

Our South African entrepreneurship and creativity compliments the technology available today. This combination means we stay up to date with global trends while providing services that are relevant to local businesses.


Over the years we have discovered that the most powerful ingredient to good design is a healthy dose of fresh inspiration. To achieve this, we fill our creative tanks with inspiration from all disciplines of art, design, and creative work on a daily basis.

To ensure we offer our clients the freshest, most inspired design, we make use of a flexible team of designers from around the world, with creative direction in Johannesburg, South Africa by One Part Scissors Co-Founder Ashley Glover.

This central exit point for all OPS design work gives us a consistency of quality and design, while allowing our clients to enjoy those fresh injections of inspiration from around the world. We work with individuals in the varied disciplines of design, 3D, animation, copywriting, and web development to achieve our client's goals.


At One Part Scissors, we specialize in creative work within the four areas of Branding, Web, Advertising, and Design.
Your requirements will likely span all four of these categories in one way or another. To see work we've done for our clients in these areas, click the links below.

Although we ensure the websites we build for our clients are compatible with all browsers, we like to push the envelope on our own website. So we've made the decision to make use of a design that looks amazing in all browsers... except Internet Explorer. If you're still using IE, you need to change - the web has moved on from Internet Explorer, and you will get a safer, faster, and more enjoyable experience out of the Internet if you use anything other than IE. Have a look at BrowseHappy.com to choose a new browser. We recommend Google Chrome and Firefox.

(PS: Microsoft is working on a new web browser, and we're all holding thumbs that it will follow the web standards and display the web like everyone else does... correctly.)
