Zale Hechter
Chief Executive Officer, CliqTech


Their process is very unique and inspirational (when coming to understand our brand). Understanding what makes our brand tick has also helped us to communicate to our staff and transformed our on-boarding process.

It’s really been a game-changer for us.

Evette Annandale
Director, Design Central SA


With each meeting, email, Zoom call and each proposal I felt listened to, and my brand cared for. With each step of the development process, my confidence kept growing as Design Central flourished under their craftsmanship. They dedicate time, passion, energy, creativity, care, soul and spirit to the work they do – and the results are world-class designs.
