I was amazed when I visited the beautiful function venue, Eensgezind, just outside Durbanville. This venue is surrounded by water and green scenes of nature. Ananda and Wilhana made me feel right at home with their warm hospitality when we discussed the re-design of the Eensgezind website.
They both wanted the Eensgezind website to portray not only the information needed, but to display it with a design that will catch the eye with a bit of French flair. Not a wonder that Eensgezind has been voted the number 1 reception venue in the Western Cape by the ABIA Awards.
Visit the Eensgezind website at www.eensgezind.co.za.
Also watch this space for their mouth-watering menus to be blogged about, soon.

Kerry-Lyn approached Xplore Studio to help her with a very basic, but still professional looking website for her photography business. We've added in a little flair with the damask background, but kept the focus on the photographs which displays in a faded effect on the page. The logo is set in an elegant font which can be used as a watermark on her photos, as well as on her business cards.
Kerry-Lyn is based in Durbanville and focuses on photos of sport, wildlife, flora, landscapes, travel, macro, décor and family.

Xplore Studio designed a very feminine but strong looking business card for an industrial psychologist, Madeleine Pretorius.
The business cards have been laminated on both sides, giving it that extra thickness. Gloss UV Varnish has been put on the front, only on the "leaf-artwork" giving it that professional touch.
Your business card is part of your first impression, make it positive by giving something unique. To get a quote on the design and printing of business cards, brochures, pamplets or any marketing material, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Wow, it's been a while since our last post! Xplore Studio have really been busy the last month...
Gwendoline, a gospel singer in Durbanville approached Xplore Studio to help her with a refresher on her website, which Xplore Studio have designed and developed two years ago.
Keeping in mind that Gwendoline had just brought out a new cd and dvd called "Gwendoline en die Bet-El-kids", we have managed to keep the website still on a professional level, but bringing in some more colour and playfulness that blends in with the kids theme. Apart from working in Gwendoline's favourite colours, whe have managed to add that personal touch and warmth that reflects her beauty and personality. Have a look at the new site, www.gwendoline.co.za.
Your website is your most important piece of online marketing material, and it needs to be at its best. If you have been going on with your website for more than three years, consider to re-design by Xplore Studio.

Xplore Studio designed a logo, business card and website for a photographer friend, Marlize Faller based in Pretoria.
Marlize wanted a fresh, simple, elegant but professional look that catches the eye but sets the focus on the photographs. Marlize specialize in baby portraits as well as children, maternity and family portraits.
She is a great photographer with a true passion for what she does. I am privileged to have her as a friend and I hope that she inspires you in the same way she does me. If you are based in the Pretoria, be sure to give her a call to setup a date for a shoot.

Xplore Studio have done a few online wedding invites this year. We have teamed up together with Elsje Designs, who did the graphic designing of the invites. It has been very inspiring to work with them since they have such a passion for design.
Xplore Studio have worked on page-turn invites which basically works like a book, using your mouse to turn the pages. It can also consist of an interactive yes-no button to respond to the invite.
It's been so much fun doing these online invites that I really do hope there's more to come!
