“StripRock delivered far beyond our expectations in so many ways: with their superb sense of style and design, their sophisticated understanding of cross-platform and multiple devices; and their ability to keep all things simple and essential. For our business, we wanted a site that was experiential over informational, and StripRock delivered gorgeously. We look forward to the next collaboration, knowing that whatever that new business venture is, the web side of it will be handled perfectly.”

The artist’s unusual, painting-like photographs needed a strong but simplistic design that would juxtapose his striking images.
“Minimalism of design, perfect for showcasing my photography”
Prof JA du Preez
Aimed primarily at prospective university students, this website for the Electrical and Electronic Department of the Engineering Faculty of Stellenbosch University is visually far ‘busier’ than most, catering for the information needs and communication preferences of Gen Y. Thanks to the new website and integrated Facebook page and advertisements, first-year applications saw an 86% increase after the launch.
“It will position our department as absolutely modern and energetic…”
Prof T Jones
Developed specifically to support up-and-coming photographer Chris Soffer’s application to college, this website was developed in such a way as to create interest, yet make photos as easy as possible to find and evaluate.
“Thank you so much for a truly incredible photo website.”
A small business in Esperance, Australia, required a website that would do justice to their eclectic range of products and services. This more playful, blog-like design supports the client’s offering in the best possible way.
“Integrating my diverse offerings on a single website was a challenge – one you passed with flying colors”
First we work with you to determine exactly what it is you would like to achieve with your web presence. We analyse who your target audiences are, and what we need to do to engage them. This will determine the style of your website’s design and content, as well as the functionality required.
The next step is to develop your content in such a way that it will achieve the desired outcomes you require. Some clients prefer to handle this aspect themselves, with minimal editing by us; whereas others prefer to provide source material and leave it to us to structure the content in the most compelling way.
Replacing a thousand words
A critical element in developing an attractive website is having striking and appropriate graphical images. We will find appropriate stock photography for the site, or develop a brief for a photographer you can employ, or – if feasible in terms of travel – do the photography ourselves.
Messages through layout
That your website must be visually appealing is a no-brainer. However, depending on the demographics of your target audience, the design and graphic content of your website must enforce the key messages in your content by engaging your specific audience.
Bringing it all to life
It’s not enough to have a website that looks attractive on only some browsers and some devices. Our very advanced coding allows your website to display and function equally well on all browsers and all applications, yet be easy for you to update.
Expanding your web
We will help you to grow your business by integrating your website with social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, and showing you how to use Facebook Ads to your best advantage.
At the head of our business is a sibling team with a combined 25 years’ experience in communication strategy and web development.

One of the first questions we get from prospective clients is why we only do responsive website design. After all, creating one website that will look good on a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone is significantly more expensive than creating just one ‘old-fashioned’ website. Is it really necessary?
For us, choosing a responsive website over a ‘normal’ website, or even a separate website, is a bit of a no brainer. That’s because Google regards responsive websites as industry best practice, and users (who are increasingly accessing websites via their mobiles) enjoy the great experience they can enjoy across a range of devices and browsers. SEO also becomes more effective and manageable if you have only one site, instead of a separate mobile site.
If you have a look at our portfolio sites, you will see how well responsive websites adapt to various devices. This is especially important for websites specifically aimed at Generation Y, such as this responsive website we designed for a local university department.
Instead of re-inventing the wheel on this one and putting together a lengthy write-up on why responsive website design is the best way to go, we found you this really great article on Search Engine Watch.
