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.

The name, "I Just Love It", says it all. Once you see the unique paintings and sketches created by Lindi Scholts, you would just love it!
Lindi specializes in custom made painting on canvasses and also pastel sketches from photos. Lindi amaze me with her passion for life, warm personality and energy that can be seen from a distance. Her talent not only stops there, she makes the most beautiful crocheting beanies for babies, kids and adults.
Lindi approached Xplore Studio to design a logo for her business as well as a website for her products. We could easily portray her designs, since she knew exactly what she wanted. The website was developed so that she can upload her latest product details and photographs.

It was so much fun working on the website for Baa Baa Black Sheep! Apart from the divine cupcakes we've been treated with, specially baked by Adel Canning herself, designing and developing a custom made website for Baa Baa Black Sheep was exciting from the beginning to the end.
Adel and her mom seems to have many hidden talents. From cupcakes (yum-yum) to making unique and beautiful decor items, linen, clothing and accessories for children.
Xplore Studio helped in designing and developing a website that displays all the different products they offer. By simply adding the items to your shopping basket and following a few steps, you are a few clicks away in treating your little one with something special and beautiful.
Be sure to view their website at www.baabaablacksheep.co.za and their facebook page because these girls are going to make a huge success of their business!

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.

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.
