Strengthening Postgraduate Supervision

Strengthening Postgraduate Supervision is a course created by educators at South African universities and shared with institutions locally and around the world. The project required rebuilding an old website with updated content and a revamp of the look and feel to be in line with sibling projects, Enhancing Postgraduate Environments and Creating Postgraduate Collaborations. We created the design for all three sites as well as a pop-up which alerted users on their first visit to any of the sites.






Creating Postgraduate Collaborations

Creating Postgraduate Collaborations

Creating Postgraduate Collaborations seeks to foster the development of research-rich environments in which academics and postgraduate students can thrive. This project required a synchronous online course to bring together all nine universities across five countries after we all met for a launch meeting in Istanbul in February 2020. With the spread of COVID-19 shortly afterward, this course became a central tool in the running of the project virtually, as opposed to the summer schools which had been planned in various countries. 

It has been a pleasure to also work on sibling projects Enhancing Postgraduate Environments and Strengthening Postgraduate Supervision.

In our client’s words: 

“The CPC course was a huge success. You guys are instantly responsive, creative, enthusiastic and make things happen. You also tackle our stupid questions with tolerance and humour. You’re the best!”

–  Sioux McKenna, Creating Postgraduate Environments

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.

In our client’s words:

“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.” – Anton Pretorius, Sologix
