Lipton Cup

Lipton Cup 2017 Branding

It is in the month of August that the esteemed and established Lipton Cup takes up the sails again. The Royal Cape Yacht Club hosts this event in the windy waters of Cape Town as they were the proud winners of last year’s event. We were asked to design the brochure, the poster and the trophies for the event, which you can see below. Our designs had to fit in with the current branding of this year’s Lipton Cup event as seen on the official website and keep the look and feel between the different items.

Graphic Design is a important tool in our arsenal to help market and brand such events.

 

WESSA

WESSA Birthday celebrations intro

WESSA is the oldest nature conservation organisation in South Africa that was founded in 1926! Wessa stands for Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa. They aim to ensure the long-term preservation of South Africa’s fauna and flora.

Thus it was with great joy that they celebrated their 90th birthday last year and wanted to send a message to all their staff, supporters and the people of South Africa.

So we helped WESSA to create a short message to the people and herewith is the creative photo slideshow that we helped put together to serve as an intro for the messages.

This example is a creative way in which to showcase photos or archives for interested viewers. Add a voice – over and a song and that’s it!

Happy Birthday!

Stock Photos ADA

Stock Photos – unique to your own establishment

There comes a day when the generic stock photos on the internet just doesn’t make the cut for the branding material a company needs to showcase what it does or liven up their marketing material. The everyday person nowadays, can spot a generic stock photo from a mile away.

This is when it makes sense to capture a company’s own stock photos that portrays your own establishment and that is unique to the company.

Such photos can be used for quite some time and can be used across a wide range of marketing material. For example – website visuals and branding, posters, booklets, pamphlets etc.

Professional photos will show your potential and current clients that your establishment is serious about their own brand and are proud to showcase to the world what they offer via their own uniquely applied stock photos.

Mi Pie brand

Mi Pie brand. Why not try Mi Pie?

The Mi Pie team asked to help them with a new brand that they are bringing to the market.  The following items were designed for the Mi Pie brand – letterheads, business cards, posters, stickers and of course the pie packet itself. Working with such a fun brand and people who are serious about their brand image was the ultimate pleasure. It is important to carry the look and feel of the brand right through all the elements and material in order for your customers to connect with the brand. Thank you Herman Photography for helping out with the models! Do you have your pie yet? Why not try Mi Pie!

Ear Institute

Ear Institute & Kyk-net “give back” initiative

Kyk-net was kind enough to sponsor little Johannes with a brand new hearing aid, fitted by the Bellville Ear Institute, after his grandmother entered the competition on his behalf. The whole family came along to witness the joy and excitement on his face and to hear the story told by the caring grandmother of how this amazing prize was won. Short videos like these are ideal to bring inspiring stories to your clients and/or potential clients and can be adapted for various means to an end.

corporate marketing video

Corporate Marketing Video

When a company wants to show potential clients exactly what it is they do, there is no better way than showing it with a professional corporate marketing video. Yes, statistics, ROI’s, meetings and explaining can work in many instances. But if you want to add some Gummi Bear juice to the mix one should consider a short promotional video for the extra impact.

Because videos consists of moving imagery, sound and music, it has the potential to convey more than just information. It can actually convey emotions of trust, professionalism, and efficiency on a whole subconscious level to the viewer. I don’t need to tell you that many buying decisions are made on an emotional level in combination with rational thought processes.

This is exactly what the aim of this video was when we combined client service/product statistics with visuals to create this corporate marketing video for them.

Corporate marketing videos such as these ones can be used on websites or put on branded USB sticks (see below) to be handed out to potential clients to help seal the deal.

I’m talking too much, please go ahead and have a look…

Lifestyle Galaxy Banner design

Lifestyle Galaxy – a Professional showcase!

It’s once again time for the annual NSBC business expo at the CTICC in Cape Town where The Pixel Revelation was asked to design the Lifestyle Galaxy  Bitcoin Mining banner for the business expo where Andre and his team could now visually showcase their products and services to interested delegates. We worked closely with Andre and incorporated his ideas and message into this banner design.

A well designed banner that consists of both visually striking as well as informative content is a killer–combo that will draw the attention of potential customers at business expo’s and sticks out from the rest of the banners and stands. Banner design can also make room for extra’s such as TV screens and shelves for alternative display add-ons for bigger impact.

We are proud to announce that the Lifestyle Galaxy banner stand won the award for the best stand at this expo.

If you don’t believe me – have a look at the photos I took there and see what we can do for your brand or product.

Property photography marketing

Property Photography Marketing

Today, the importance of visual marketing, by means of integration with professional property photography are paramount to making the sales you want, when you want as well as showing your clients that you are serious about your professional brand.

Some estate agents still manage to sell their houses with cellphone cameras and underexposed photos. But what damage is being done to their brand? Remember, the estate agent’s “shopfront” (the first interaction a brand has with a client) is the print add or website that will list the property to potential buyers. Thus what harm are you doing to your brand, when you have unprofessional photos hitting your client square in the face?

Professional photographs are step one in marketing a property for sale or for rent. And bad photos will equate to a bad start. And remember, the more bad it looks with regards to the condition/look/feel of the property – the more you need a professional approach to capture the property in the best way possible.
