Blog vs Facebook

by Admin 28. March 2012 18:24

The question remains, is a blog still a good investment for your business, especially compared to facebook?

My opinion, your blog should still be your main strategy for marketing on the web. A blog will give you the ability to grow your personal brand, make it easy for people to find your business and comment on your work and give you control over the social technology. Patricia Redsicker at Wordview Editing has composed a very informative infographic that provides 10 good reasons why blogging is better than Facebook. Apart from the fact that your blog is unique, your articles is always available and your blog does improve your search rankings, if setup correctly and writing regular posts.

by Admin 5. March 2012 04:16

Xplore Studio designed a very feminine but strong looking business card for an industrial psychologist, Madeleine Pretorius.


The business cards have been laminated on both sides, giving it that extra thickness. Gloss UV Varnish has been put on the front, only on the "leaf-artwork" giving it that professional touch.


Your business card is part of your first impression, make it positive by giving something unique. To get a quote on the design and printing of business cards, brochures, pamplets or any marketing material, please send us an email to

Refresher on Gwendoline website

by Admin 15. February 2012 04:01

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,


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.

Photographer Logo Business Card and Website

by Admin 10. December 2011 03:22

Xplore Studio designed a logo, business card and website for a photographer friend, Marlize Faller based in Pretoria.

Marlize wanted a fresh, simple, elegant but professional look that catches the eye but sets the focus on the photographs. Marlize specialize in baby portraits as well as children, maternity and family portraits.

She is a great photographer with a true passion for what she does. I am privileged to have her as a friend and I hope that she inspires you in the same way she does me. If you are based in the Pretoria, be sure to give her a call to setup a date for a shoot!

Online Wedding Invites

by Admin 22. November 2011 03:59

Xplore Studio have done a few online wedding invites this year. We have teamed up together with Elsje Designs, who did the graphic designing of the invites. It has been very inspiring to work with them since they have such a passion for design.

Xplore Studio have worked on page-turn invites which basically works like a book, using your mouse to turn the pages. It can also consist of an interactive yes-no button to respond to the invite.

It's been so much fun doing these online invites that I really do hope there's more to come!
