JobStarter is a mobile learning, career information platform created to address some of the structural hurdles that undermine the potential connections between young people and post-school work and/or further education opportunities. They aim to be the go-to information, learning and opportunity aggregator for youth, as well as educate employers on the opportunities they can create for young people looking for work.

We were tasked with writing in-depth blog posts on some of the services they offer, and informing young job seekers on the various opportunities open to them. We also got this infront of their audience via their social media channels, which we also managed through different campaigns and strategies we drafted each month according to the current theme.

OSF-SA Open Society Foundation for South Africa Website Development Pomegranite Online Presence Consultancy

Open Society Foundation

The Open Society Foundation for South Africa (OSF-SA) is committed to promoting the values, institutions and practices of an open, non-racial and non-sexist, democratic, civil society.

Pomegranite has worked with OSF-SA since 2014. Pomegranite built and takes care of their website and social media, predominantly relating to their grantees. We publish news updates regarding events that feature OSF grantees and monitor the media for breaking news involving their grantees.

During November 2018, the Open Society Foundation celebrated 25 years of grant-making in South Africa. The organisation also paid tribute to founder, George Soros, who visited South Africa, along with other OSF international network partners. The celebration was special because his philanthropy was born in South Africa, with the issuing for scholarships for black students to attend UCT in 1979.

Pomegranite built a dedicated website which housed a range of information including a special timeline which displayed archive material from OSF-SA’s 25 years in South Africa, along with tributes to George Soros, special films, press releases and event information.

We also managed several social media campaigns related to the week of celebrations and live-tweeted major events. We were delighted that “#OpenSocietySA25” trended in Cape Town during the celebrations.

The Red Cross Children’s Hospital Trust

A hospital dedicated entirely to children – especially children predominantly from impoverished communities throughout Africa – is critically important. So important, that it needs a champion to make sure that it’s able to keep doing the phenomenal work it does.

That champion is the Children’s Hospital Trust.

The Trust was established in 1994 to advance child healthcare through the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital – the first stand-alone tertiary hospital, exclusively for children, in sub-Saharan Africa.

Building this website and helping rewrite the content meant hearing stories about kids beating the odds and incredible people saving lives. Naturally, we loved it.

SA SME 1 Pomegranite Online Presence

SA SME fund

The SA SME Fund was established by members of the CEO Initiative – a collaboration between government, labour and business to address some of the most pressing challenges to the country’s economic growth – as an avenue of support for the SME sector. The Fund needed specialised social media coverage over the course of several months to build the brand’s profile at events and during the launch of Fund projects. We handled their social media accounts through a combination of structured, pre-approved content as well as amplifying PR coverage as it happened.

Unfold Africa

Vundi is an incredible safari guide. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the bush just pour out of him and he needed a website to match. Unfold Africa is Vundi’s own business so we wanted to put him front and centre and help his audience start dreaming about their safari with him. The site includes a translation tool to assist all prospective guests and a custom contact form which gives Vundi the right details to help him start the conversation with new guests.

sologix website development by Pomegranite


Having worked in big business for 25 years, Anton Pretorius decided to turn his attention to doing work which creates growth and generates improvement. He felt that working with small and medium-sized enterprises is the best way to achieve this because these businesses drive our economy, create employment and allow individuals to improve their situation. And so he started Sologix.

Anton needed a corporate identity and website to communicate who he is and what he can offer. While representing him as a trusted advisor, we also wanted to bring across his personality. He’s a dad, a surfer, a motorbike enthusiast and “the biggest Pink Floyd fan in [his] home”.

In 2019 we launched several online courses on the Sologix platform, which allowed Anton to extend his reach beyond Cape Town-based clients. As clients of Anton ourselves, we were thrilled to be part of a project that brings his valuable skills and insight to as many people as possible.

“Sologix has come through the ranks with Pomegranite. Our engagement started as a simple online presence website in 2015 and over time evolved into a more engaged offering with occasional blog posts and the like.

As of 2019 Pomegranite has been instrumental in taking Sologix to the next level with an online platform for business coaching and development. We offer a range of courses that our users can register for, which allow both users and administrators to track their progress online.

The team at Pomegranite is exemplary in the advice they provide, reaction time in addressing issues (with special mention in launching the Crisis 101 course) and support given throughout the process. I highly recommend Pomegranite as an online presence consultancy.”

Butterfly Wings

We worked with Claudia – an holistic reproductive health practitioner – for over a year, running her social media and newsletters. This was so successful that she was booked up months in advance.

We then rebuilt Butterfly Wings, Claudia’s online store, where she sells gentle and natural products to take women through all phases of their menstrual cycle.

“I am gobsmacked. When I look at my business in a visual perspective like this it kind of makes my heart skip a beat. It looks awesome, thanks so much!”
