We are DesignCapital, a Cape Town based
brand development, web design and
marketing agency. Founded in 2014, we
have helped multitudes of businesses
across a broad spectrum of industries to
name, brand and market themselves to
their target audience and position
themselves as industry leaders as a result
of their new and professional brand image
With many years of collective industry experience and
qualifications, our team of industry professionals are well
positioned to meet your requirements. One thing that we
believe sets us apart is our tailored design process we have
developed and implemented. This enables you as the client
to know that your requirements will be completely
understood and accurately implemented and masterfully
executed within agreed timelines.
We become the brand and marketing arm
of a business ensuring the two key pillars:
‘Brand Integrity’ and ‘Brand Awareness’
are steadily in place and remain standing
over time. As such we help businesses to
create appropriate, relevant, persuasive
brand messages and ensure that these
permeate consistently throughout all
touch points of that business.
This consistent brand identity empowers a business to be
more competitive and to justify possible premium pricing
– as by virtue of their image, they can now be regarded as
industry leaders. It also conveys integrity and respect,
raising the brand to the same level as the business
through perfect design.

heavy weights and middle weight fees.
After 22 years in the industry, the
owner of DesignCapital has teamed
up with quality management
consultants to custom design the
process by which we do what we do.
What this means is that when a new
client comes on board, they can have
peace of mind knowing that they are
receiving a competitive and accurate
As a client your needs are
comprehensively understood, their
project is expertly and masterfully
executed and is done so within the
agreed time frame. This is typically
uncommon in the design agency
world and we are proud to be
offering such a service.
Every part of the design process requires
a specific skill set and as such requires a
specific person. We have endeavoured to
have no ‘jack of all trades’ in our
business. Everybody in the team are
working within their specific skill set in
which they are experienced and in most
cases have a formal qualification (where
Case and point: the designer
designs and the developer develops. As
obvious as that may sound, it is not
always and often not the case. Very often
you get developers designing, where
‘true’ design is a very unique skillset
where a formal and minimal 3 year
qualification is almost mandatory and

"We first met Gary from Design Capital in December 2015, and have been a client of theirs ever since.
We initially made contact with Gary to assist with corporate rebranding - a new logo, corporate stationary and a new website.
We were very happy with the work Design Capital did for us and have since continually used their services for social media marketing, print media, shopfront signage design and whatever creative needs we have.
Gary and his team are very professional, efficient, and very knowledgeable with a good creative eye and interesting marketing ideas.
