CY market 2018

CY Market 2018 @ Stoneshed

Once again, the CY Market exceeded all expectations when it was hosted at the Stoneshed on a Durbanville farm only a few kilometres from the town. Not even a rain shower on the first day stopped hundreds of visitors from browsing this famous yearly market which has become an annual Durbanville event for many residents in the area and surrounds.

This year’s theme for the CY market was “Patterns”. The theme was carried through in the stalls and decor and a lot of effort has been put in to make sure this market is a feast for the eyes.

This video showcases only a glimpse of all the market has to offer, ranging from décor, clothing, artisan shoes, jewellery and items for children. There’s also more than enough food and beverage options for the hungry ones as well as ample activities for the little ones!

Corporate Identity Development

Corporate Identity Development

When working on a client’s Corporate Identity one should have a holistic approach to the process. Listen to what the client wants and needs and guide them towards the end result which will benefit their brand in the long run. The designer must make sure they have strong logo image that can be applied to various stationary and applications throughout the whole range of brand possibilities.

The client’s logo should be strong, easily recognizable and adaptable to different applications and formats. Below is a few examples of this principle, where you can see how the logo was used on business cards, email signatures, Power point slide template as well as a informative flyer.

The client now has a whole arsenal of visual branding tools to use at their disposal going forward in developing and growing their company’s corporate brand identity.

Retractable banner design

A retractable banner is like a shopfront display and should act the part. Therefore it is important that the retractable banner should be professionally designed.

My client needed a retractable banner for their company that highlights what they offer their clients in a visually striking way that also fits in with their corporate identity.

I worked along the look and feel guidelines that they requested and made a print ready banner for them.

I believe they were very happy with the end result and am sure that the pull-out banner will have a positive impact for their marketing and display purposes.

Such retractable banners can be displayed at expo’s, events, talks or in-house and helps to showcase clients and potential clients what you offer.

Your displays don’t need to stop there! Have a look what we did for this client!

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.

industrial engineering, Stellenbosch

Industrial Engineering US

Industrial engineering – an exciting field of study at many a worthy university and in this case Stellenbosch University. How do they market their course? How do interested people and potential Stellenbosch students know what to expect or who’s involved? Well, they have their own website and pamphlets and student prospectus etc. But one crucial element that’s needed to spice things up is photographs or excellent graphics.

This is why this photography project was commissioned in order to provide them with a whole stock library that the Industrial Engineering department can use in their various marketing and communication mediums to showcase visually.

Such photographs make a handy tool in the arsenal of any establishment’s marketing, public relations or media department. Click here for another example of stock library photos for an establishment.

roofing project

Roofing Project

When I photographed this Cape Town roofing project, I soon realised that this construction project is probably the most impressive school building I have ever seen and will see in a long time. The company that does the work on the roof has done an excellent job as you can see for yourself. It was a photographer’s dream to capture all the lines and angles that is evident on this site, where photographic opportunities presented themselves around every corner.

These photos are part of a visual documentation tool that documents the progression of this fascinating construction project and keep it on the record for their portfolio and as a tool for any visual marketing needs in the future. Here you can see a similar project we photographed for another roofing company and another approach to construction / renovation branding projects.

 

endoscopy, knee

Knee Endoscopy Procedure

In this video you can see amazing endoscopy technology being used in a knee procedure performed just outside Cape Town by these skilled doctors.

The patient’s knee is being fixed by the doctor only making two incisions where the high-tech camera and tool penetrate to clean up the knee. This technology allows for high definition image management that puts the doctor in complete control of what is happening inside. The doctor can oversee the entire procedure by just looking on the screen that links up with what he’s doing inside the patient.

For more promotional videos, please have a look at this example where Olliele Roux tells his story.

 

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.
