Louise Carver has been writing songs on the piano since 11yrs old and was signed to her first record label in South Africa at 15. She released her first single at 17 and has continued to release numerous top 10 singles throughout her career.
Almost 2 years ago, .kreatif code.design. first created a stunning web site for Louise Carver using Flash. You can hear some of her music on the site, and see her Gig Guide, Discography and Gallery.
The name encapsulates the musical sound jewellery makes when moving against your body. As music has been Louise’s vocation for so many years, she wanted to extend her voice and creative love for all things timelessly ‘South African’, into a jewellery range.
‘Jingle & Chimes’ is Louise’s way of combining glamour with a relaxed sense of style. Effortless, one of a kind pieces which you can cherish forever.
The range includes fresh water pearls, turquoise, aqua marine, rose quarts, white gold, Swarovski crystals, Labradorite and Onyx. The stone’s cut and colour ensures that no two pieces could ever be the same – this range is for people who are looking for individual, investment pieces without breaking the bank.
.Kreatif and Penguin Marketing, a specialised marketing consultancy for children’s and family brands, worked together on several projects in the past few years. Aysha will have a desk in the .Kreatif office from this week, and we hope to do a lot more with her in future!
Penguin Marketing, a company offering customised marketing solutions for children’s and family brands opened in May 2008. The company is owned and managed by Aysha Gani–Mohamed, a marketer passionate about brand management, particularly within the family brand arena.

Forty-three quintillion (43,252,003,274,489,856,000). The amount of possibilities a Rubik’s Cube has.
It was also the theme of the latest design of the 2008 annual report for Square One Solutions Group. .Kreatif used this theme to illustrate the sheer endless possibilities Square One offers their clients. This is the second annual report design by .kreatif using only environmentally friendly paper.
.Kreatif also designed and developed the Square One Group web site last year. It uses a CMS (Content Managed System) and the design was implemented as a custom template throughout the site for all the various Square One companies.
SAWIP began as an initiative of alumni and volunteers of the Washington Ireland Program for Service and Leadership (WIP), a program founded in 1995 that has tirelessly strived to unite the Protestant and Catholic youths of Northern Ireland and the youths of Northern Ireland and Ireland through a rigorous leadership curriculum and community service. Today, SAWIP has become a means for young South Africans to take on great responsibilities, develop a sense of mutual understanding and shared experiences that transcend identity and encourage others to contribute to positive social change.
South Africa and the island of Ireland share similar histories of segregation and violence and are now in the process of developing a stronger and unified society. However, despite these parallels, both have experienced different results in resolving long-standing conflict and managing their diverse societies. Today, both find themselves in different political and economic circumstances that need specific and targeted means to address outstanding issues and grievances.
Kreatif was contracted to develop the SAWIP web site with a CMS (Content Managed System) to allow the client to make changes regularly, add photos to the gallery and for each Intern to have his/her own blog on the website where they post their experiences, ideas, etc.
|We finally installed our new office furniture in the Century City office this weekend – everyone is looking very happy and they all tackled their projects with renewed vigor this morning! Kristoph and I dreamed about this since the days in our small Sea Point office, but doors and trestles had to do for the first few years while everyone learned that leaning against a”desk” was not only impolite but downright dangerous!|
|Kristoph did his usual brilliant designer thing with the layout of the office and the design of the new desks, and we had it made especially for us by an excellent carpenter, Jason. Last Friday everyone put in a bit (or a lot) in breaking down the old office, getting the equipment out of the way and the place empty for the arrival of the new desk units. Some had to be bribed with drinks, but in the end all had a great time and left for the weekend, very excited about what they will find when they return today.|
|Kristoph and Jason built the desk units on Saturday and Kristoph, Pierre and I put the network back together and made all electronic things work again on Sunday… phew! Wouldn’t want to do this on a regular basis or for a much bigger office! With one errant Mac tamed again by this morning (thanks Pierre!), all was well, and now it’s business as usual in our beautiful new office!
Please do come and visit us for a cup of coffee while you admire our great new working space!
Exporting the African Experience ( http://www.printsofafrica.com )
One couple is taking the essence of Africa’s stunning beauty and creating an online source for canvas prints that brings to life the continent’s finest natural wonders.
But fuzzy photos and small memorabilia are relegated to cupboards or small corners on the mantelpiece all too often, only to be observed occasionally. However, one UK couple is seeking to change all that, bringing a new brand of fresh and visible African prints that make the memories part of any home or work space.
Serial entrepreneur Barry Cowler and his wife, Mary, are founders of Prints of Africa, one of the globe’s most exclusive canvas companies online. Their launch six months ago follows close on forty years of business experience.
Drawing on unique images from professional photographers traveling the continent, the couple are bringing alive the treasures of Africa with a selection of over 500 of the most unique images captured. While having originally intended a retirement after decades of success in business, a passion for African art has turned into a top international online company for the Cowlers, one which now caters to a global market.
“Our canvas print images are sourced from professional photographers working in Africa and given exclusively to us,” says Barry as he comments on those out in the field who capture the wildlife and natural beauty on film for the final product.
With a wide spectrum and diversity of photographs of scenic beauty and wildlife constantly coming in, the couple is quickly creating one of the largest and most sought-after online selections, with canvas sizes for individual prints on offer range from 210×297mm through to approximately to 420×594 mm.
