New year, new goals

– Sarah

Hello and happy 2018!

We hope you had a wonderful break and that you’re getting into the swing of things. Those first few days without an afternoon beer and nap can be tough.

Because no one feels like writing (or reading?) a lengthy, technical post so early on in the year, we thought we’d ask each pomegranite the following two questions:

1) Describe your holiday in one gif.

2) What are you most looking forward to (work-wise) in 2018?

Thanks for being a part of our year

Hello,

Another trip around the sun almost complete!

At Pomegranite, it’s been a year of exciting projects, a beautiful new office, lovely new team members and freelancers expanding our ranks, a healthy amount of stressful moments, and a whole lot of fun and laughter.

Big news is that Sarah will be moving to Joburg at the end of the year to start a satellite office. If you have any colleagues, friends or family over there who need a website or social media, please send them our way!READ MORE

“Your connection to this site is NOT SECURE”

– Carla

On the 27th of April, Google announced that from the beginning of October 2017 “Chrome will show the “Not secure” warning in two additional situations: when users enter data on an HTTP page, and on all HTTP pages visited in Incognito mode.”

You may be wondering What is HTTP and HTTPS? and What does this mean for my site? Let’s start at the beginning:

HTTP and HTTPS

HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) was the system used in ‘the beginning’ by network administrators as the standard procedure for exchanging information. However once everyone understood this process, it became very easy to intercept these exchanges. Thus HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) was developed to protect the information exchanged over the network. HTTPS uses an SSL Certificate to encrypt the information. This means that even if someone intercepts information being exchanged they would not be able to read it.READ MORE

Working with clients who do great things

– Sarah

We’re really lucky that we get to work with such a diverse range of clients – from schools to designers, architects, luxury safari guides, and impact investors.

We especially love working with clients who are doing incredible things to improve lives.

Steps – a social enterprise working for the eradication of clubfoot as a disability in southern and east Africa – was one of our very first clients, and we still work with them each month as they change children’s lives.

This month, along with their champion Cameron van der Burgh, Steps is running a “Steptember” campaign, raising funds for clubfoot treatment by challenging people to become “Steppers”.READ MORE
