Pomegranite team 2023

You’ll never guess what the word of 2023 is…

Last week, our Operations Manager, Melissa, sent a link to our “show-and-tell” Slack channel about Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Year for 2023 - a term for “something we’re thinking about, writing about, aspiring to, and judging more than ever”. Forget the newest development in Taylor Swift’s

We love building online courses for our clients. We love training clients on how to use WordPress so they can update their own websites. It took us surprisingly long to join these dots for ourselves: what if we created our own online course to teach people

Pomegranite turns 10

Pomegranite turns 10

1 July 2023 marked 10 years since we started Pomegranite. It’s surreal. When Liz and I sat down a decade ago to write our business plan, we decided to pepper it with ways we would celebrate big milestones. For our 10th birthday, we thought, we’d have

Rowan Jason Project Manager

Meet Rowan

The self-drive option

My first day at Pomegranite was three days after my 28th birthday. I had worked my two months’ notice at my “real” job, and on 1 July 2013, as we sat in Liz’s tiny Long Street flat drinking tea on her couch, the enormity of

Pomegranite goodbye 2021

A goodbye to 2021

A few days ago I was with someone during quite a big moment in their life, and they were really emotional. “I’ve been finding that I’m so much more maudlin this year,” they said, smiling through a real fruit salad of feelings. I’ve been thinking about
