When we first met with HWB Communications, we made a commitment to them to reinvent their web site design and structure to be more fitting to their dynamic company. Their old site was.. well, old and tired…
We asked many questions and then finally, I saw the light go on in our design team! A very happy client approved the design and the development team sprang into action to deliver a very polished web site with a customised CMS system for the client to update their News Room and Gallery.
Kreatif was named this week as one of the top 10 web design agencies in SA by Dave Duarte of Huddlemind on his blog – after a twitter survey. We are thrilled, and asked a few of our clients why they agree:
We at DreamWorker think the Kreatif team is fantastic because:
1. They LISTENED when we briefed them
2. They TOOK TIME to understand what we were needing
3. They worked WITHIN BUDGET, understanding that we are a non profit organisation
4. They managed their DEADLINES beautifully
5. They COMMUNICATED with us on every issue
6. They produced a SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE, EASY TO USE website for us …….
on time, inside budget and looking fabulous. They deserve all the accolades they receive. Well done! Tania Bownes, Project Manager, DreamWorker
Well done! Liked your offices (which we visited the other day). I think the thing that’s kept us smiling about Kreatif has been the desire to interact with the customer in a non-patronising way. The thing that stood out for me most is that I never felt stupid when learning how to blog etc. and you even took the trouble to train me how to do it. Phil and Liz, Parker Cottage
We love Kreatif and our fabulous new retro website. Kreatif carefully assessed our specialties, likes, dislikes and organisational culture and then designed a funky, clean retro website to illustrate what we do. Its challenging to explain Public Relations in a visual manner, but they succeeded with this design. Elsa Uys, HWB Communications
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!! You guys ROCK! Dawn Alexander, Square One Group
KREATIF designed our web site printsofafrica. From our first meeting with Retha and her team we were impressed by their enthusiasm and professional approach. KREATIF delivered the brief to our complete satisfaction and we were extremely pleased with the result. KREATIF is a dynamic company combining empathy with total commitment to their clients. Printsofafrica wish them every success for the future and feel confident their business will continue to prosper. Congratulations KREATIF on being voted one of the top ten design agencies in South Africa. Mary Cowler, Printsofafrica.com
Congratulations, you guys deserve it! Kathleen Barry, Beadstudio
I agree! I used Kreatif for my first hesitant steps into the world of having a web site. Retha was highly proactive in the advice given for the layout and design. Her input regarding graphics and background music was a great help! The final product spoke for itself. Thanks Retha for a great job! Steve Bailey, Photographer
Kreatif has my wholehearted endorsement as an agency that listens to the customer’s brief and interacts with their client accordingly. As someone who needed more than the usual by way of explanations and attention, I am pleased to say that their personal attention and “handholding” encouraged me and gave me the confidence to boast about my business. Thanks to their simple yet artistic interpretation of what I need the viewer to see and react to, HomeLink has acquired an appreciative viewer response. Avril Mitchley, HomeLink South Africa
Why I am I NOT surprised! Well done! Itha Taljaard, Sense 2 Solve
Kreatif designs often require some “out of the box” thinking, and our design team is brilliant at this! Here are two of the designs I drew out of the hat from their archive:
Olives Go Wild packaging design for the Vacu-Fresh Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Kreatif has created stunning design for several projects with Olives Go Wild including two web sites (http://www.olivesgowild.co.za and http://www.olivedirectory.co.za) and various designs for brochures, labels, award certificates and flyers.
Square One Group Invitations
When I first heard about the idea after a design team brainstorming session, I have to admit that I was sceptical. Although it sounded like a great idea to create an invitation with a difference, I could see all kinds of problems with the execution. (Here I should admit that I am not a designer, but rather a web developer with a more logical way of thinking!
After many phone calls to various nurseries and seed suppliers we located the seemingly ONLY supply of (just enough) wheatgrass seeds to cover the few square metres of wheatgrass we would need for the invitation to work an envisaged. Further investigations to find a grower for the seeds in the correct size containers, we found the answer in another client! Dr Petrus Langenhoven, an Agronomist / Greenhouse Specialist at ASNAPP (Agribusiness in Sustainable Natural African Plant Products) agreed to grow the seeds in the containers, to be ready at the exact time the invitations needed to be hand delivered! Mission accomplished.
Ultimately the invitation left the invitee with something to chew on (the wheatgrass growing in the top) and made it clear that the servers to be launched are kinder to the environment due to their lower power requirements, and the client was thrilled!
Kreatif has been involved in a few projects with the Square One Group and continue to provide design, print and web services to them.
