Oribi Gorge is a beautiful farming region just inland from the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast. The Oribi Gorge Guest Farm, a three-cottage establishment on a working farm right on the edge of the Gorge, has been in operation for about 20 years. Although they had an existing site, they felt it was time for an update both of the site and the photography, and asked me to work on something with them.
Zanele Mji, a South Africa writer, researcher and journalist was on the hunt for a minimalist, text-driven site and had hit a couple of roadblocks along the way. It seemed most designers she'd approached, instead of being willing to listen to her design ideas, had tried to convince her to go with an image-heavy approach and were unwilling to budge on this!
When you get a brief from a graphic designer for a photography site, it qualifies as a dream project! Graphic designer Bianca Bouverie designed the logo and site for Courtney Clegg, a wedding, maternity and elopement photographer and asked me to put it together. It really is a pleasure working with visually oriented people who've already put a lot of thought into their project and have a clear idea of what they want.
