CY Market

CY MARKET 2017 @ Stone shed

This year the CY Market was hosted at the Stone shed Venue on a farm just outside the Northern Suburbs village of Durbanville. The farm setting was perfect for a break away shopping and browsing adventure with items for everyone in the family. There stalls sell anything from home décor, clothing, artisan shoes, jewellery and items for children. Then as soon as you get hungry there is a range of food trucks and stalls selling delicious meals and take away food items like olives, pastry’s, fudge and biltong. For those who get thirsty after such a day of browsing and shopping, there is refreshing craft beers and wines to cool off with, whilst the children can play outside. Herewith our short video showcasing the CY Market 2017 that we filmed. Next year you’ll need to experience it for yourself.

Video is a perfect tool for showcasing events to an online audience. Here’s another example from another and completely different event where video tells a story.

A big thank you to Anna from Nova Films for helping out with the drone filming.

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!

CY market 2016, Durbanville

CY Market 2016 at Meerendal

Another year has flown by and the CY Market 2016 team has outdone themselves this time around with an outstanding market. This year they have moved the venue to the esteemed Meerendal Wine farm on the outskirts of Durbanville, Western Cape. Marketing videos like this can really help to convey to the viewer how it must have been to be there.

There were items for sale and things to do for everyone. Yes, even the men! Ranging from clothing, décor, accessories, furniture to the most delicious food items for the whole family. The market has grown exponentially in size this year, and the Meerendal Wine Farm farm could cater for everyone, with enough space and views of the surrounding country side to add to the ambiance.

Unique temptations for the taste buds at this year’s CY Market were, gourmet ice cream, Durbanville distilled rum, vodka and gin, craft beers, wines from Durbanville, smoked olives, baked goods, and an assortment of food stalls catering to all the hungry (and thirsty!) shoppers.

I can keep on telling you about CY Market 2016 or you can see for yourself. Have a look and see you there next year!

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.

Walker Bay RC Flyers

Walker Bay RC Flyers Event

Having the privilege to film the Walker Bay RC Flyers event turned out to be a jaw-dropping, nail-biting and spectacular experience. I worked alongside the RPATS.aero team to capture the vibe and action of this memorable event in the Overberg, just outside Hermanus. The RPATS.aero cellphone app offers tamper-proof Flight Logging in the cloud for RC Pilots combined with aircraft administration and radar functionality. One can download the app for free and change the way you administer and manage your RC flying. The event was blessed with the presence of international champions of the likes of Martin Pickering, Neil Fergus and the Red Arrows duo team.

Have a look at the video and witness the aerial maneuvers and superb skill of these RC flyers.

Rikki & Caley special day

Herewith a little preview to showcase a very special day in the lives of Rikki and Caley. You can see for yourself that it was a day filled with fun and laughter and it can be attributed to the sparkling personality of these two people and the warmth of their friends and family. Special thanks to Yolande from YSP, whom I helped out, for this opportunity.

 

Nikkah

Nikkah – the uniting

Here’s a few of the wedding photographs that was captured whilst second shooting for Picturess during the Nikkah ceremony and the groom getting ready on a beautiful Cape Town spring day.

It was a wonderful experience to share this part of the special day with the family and friends and capture these moments with them at the house and the mosque.

 

Durbanville matric photos

Durbanville Matric Photos

Time flies – especially high school! This was once again the case with this group of matrics that had their Durbanville matric photos and got together for a few photos beforehand. I was asked to capture the photos for Louw and Carla who really seemed excited for the event. I’m sure they’ll agree that these photos are worth keeping and looking at for years to come.

Herewith some of our other People Photos.

Pop-up dinner

Pop-up – Christmas in July

Christmas arrived early this year in the form of a Pop-up dinner evening – and what a beautiful evening it was. The evening was filled with superb wines, excellent food, good laughs and ambiance. The reason for this winter gathering was another exclusive pop-up event by The Pot and Spoon in coordination with Braai Country.

The Pop-up evening was hosted by winemaker Dirk Roos on the rustic Mooiplaas wine estate. The guests were welcomed by some mulled wine in the tasting room and led to the long table in the historical manor house where Chef Jaco’s six course dinner was served and paired with the farm’s excellent Mooiplaas wines.

It was an evening for the books and one that all the guests will surely remember. I had the privilege to attend and capture this memorable event and even sneak taste some of the food from the kitchen. What a bargain. Be sure to look out for the next Pop-up event by following Chef Jaco from the Pot and Spoon and Braai Country on Facebook.
