Roberts Safaris

Safari company site redesign (2017)

Redesign of Robert’s Safaris website. New video, eloquently-written itineraries, and weaving a new narrative of the rich history of Roberts Safaris.

Wow - what can we say regarding working with Tim, the experience from start to finish has been inspiring, informative and his ability to hold our hand through the creative process has made this streamlined. Without a doubt the journey has inspired us to truly reflect on the Roberts Safaris ethos, and the end result is something that we are delighted with."

The Plaster House

Share the change you make in the world (2014 - Present)

Sarah Rejman, the founder of  the Plaster House charity, needed to exponentially increase their funding.  To solicit these donations, they needed to share how they change lives every day, in an engaging, inspiring way.  

Sarah wanted a compelling website and social media that was easy to update, and that made online donations one-click-simple. Since then, Plaster House has had:

  • Over 50 000 site visits in the year after launch
  • More than 49 000 Facebook likes
  • A major increase in funding, meaning new buildings sponsored and more kids helped

Working with Tim was great, he brought ideas to the table that made the site clean, clear and most accessible. I'm delighted with the outcome and the follow up."

Go Rentals

Rent everything from iPads to Cash Registers online (2015)

Selling IT and office equipment rental is a complicated balancing act. There are multitude of tricks to combine on the screen, and the workings behind.

“We have become South Africa’s leading short term rental company. We have no outbound sales team. Besides word of mouth, almost all of our new business leads come exclusively from the website.” Says CEO Evan Berger. “The website is still proving to be engaging and extremely effective at delivering successful leads.”

The layout of the site has also been successful in communicating to existing customers the additional ranges of products available, which has resulted in significant growth.

Feedback from customers has been extremely positive, and Go Rentals has gone from strength to strength.

Tim has a wealth of experience in Digital and Web, and is up to date with the latest trends in design. He always manages expectations and timelines, and pays very close attention to the requirements. Most importantly he understands the business case."

- Evan Berger, CEO, Go Rentals
