Our Work


Linked Identities

Linked Identities

A Multi Layered Entity

As the parent company, Larkrise Enterprises wanted it's children to have a similar brand so as to be easily identifiable as related to Larkrise, yet different enough to stand on their own. The idenifying arc created the link and the differing colours established the independent entities.

Unconventional Safaris

Unconventional Safaris

Standing out from the Crowd

This client wanted an original take on safari packages. Epic Elephants, Swimming with Sardines, A Safari focusing on Fine Wine...we tried to breathe a little life into the graphics to catch their customers eyes and stand out from the usual travel brochure.

Brand Compliance

Brand Compliance

For the Corporates

A prestigiuos, global auditing network, RSM, decided to undertake a rebranding excercise. RSM Swaziland was required to follow the new guidelines. Strict adherence to a 75 page Corporate Identity document was required for all printwork, online and media publications and communications. We were tasked with rebranding all stationery & signage and drafting the press ads to announce the change as well as remake all email signatures and word templates. This was done on tight deadlines and was seamlessly approved by all compliance monitors.



A Selection

Whether you prefer elegantly classic or fabulously funky, we would be delighted to assist you with your own unique identity. All of our designs are one of a kind in-house creations. If you have a logo that you are happy with but don't have it in high resolution, we will happily redraw it for you so that it can be used in any size for large and small format printing and display requirements.


Marketing Material

Who are you? That is what your print material needs to express both verbally and graphically. In this age of memes, texts and bullet points, your profile needs to be sharp and to the point while conveying the visual message with aclarity.


Product Catalogues

House on Fire is ‘an exploration into temperature of the cultural kind, it is of the old days, it is wise without travelling’…an awe-inspiring entertainment venue with a distinctly unique African brand. Presenting an eclectic ongoing performance schedule, as well as being available for hire for private functions, this flexible space allows for intimate gatherings, seated dining and large scale performances.

An architectural achievement, the structure itself twists and winds through a myriad of dimensions and experiences, feelings and processes to leave its audience spellbound and begging for more. House on Fire does not disappoint. The Afro Shakespearean Globe Theatre, suspended mini-baroque lounges, the soapstone Piazza, the Sky Bar, all feed into each other with dazzling detail and onslaught of colour. Vast differences of style and vibe connect in harmony reinforcing the underlying theme of cultural meeting points. House on fire settles itself at the exciting ‘juncture of hum’ where traditional Africa meets the contemporary.

The passion has been to explore fresh ideas borne through the meeting of cultures and the unique crossovers that find a magical balance together. This union is a story which writes itself every day at House on Fire in a uniquely physical and organic way.


Announced this year by CNN as one of the “7 African music festivals you really have to see”, and most recently as BBC’s Top African Festival., MTN BUSHFIRE is Swaziland’s internationally acclaimed music & arts festival that celebrates creative expression whilst promoting social responsibility, stimulating the economy and drawing talent and tourists from across Africa and around the world.

Each year a multi-generational global community of more than 25,000 “BRING THEIR FIRE” to the scenic farmlands of the Malkerns Valley to experience the three day event renowned for eclectic and multi-dimensional programming rooted in world music including a compelling line-up of theatre, poetry, dance, art exhibits & installations, story-telling, puppetry, film, and themed workshops. To round out the MTN Bushfire experience, the festival also boasts a fresh & healthy craft food market, a regional design and hand-made speciality goods market, as well as family-friendly camping, performances & the KidZone.

With profits going to support local charities, MTN BUSHFIRE serves, in the words of one journalist, “as a living, breathing, creative ecosystem.”


The House on Fire Gallery provides an opportunity to take your House on Fire experience home with you. The gallery hosts exquisite painted and adorned wooden & soap stone sculptures incorporating vairous textures, tiles, jewels and paint techniques, dressing them in a fanciful fusion of imagination and light. The intention and demeanour of the individual pieces take the viewer to a place where myth and physical reality become inseparable.

A collision (collusion) of cultures… that fascinating space where they meet… the beauty, the humour and the magic that combines imagery, poetry and form. These pieces begin with a vision, a story that needs to be told, the feeling that find it’s expression through the grain of the wood or the mark of a chisel.

Jiggs Thorne and his exceptionally talented craftsmen meet at the crossroads of culture, style and skill to blend their unique talents. The results are these fantastical, thought provoking artworks.

Harmony of vision and an expression of feeling manifest through the relationship between storyteller and artisan. Commission work is welcome.
