Congrats on three years with Pomegranite, Tom!

Three years ago, Tom joined our team as a social media manager (has it been that long already?!). This charming old soul’s hard work and dedication to the team has seen him grow into his current project manager role, and it’s been an absolute pleasure to have him as part of the Pomegranite family.

Speaking to the 5 Love Languages at work

Speaking to the 5 Love Languages at work

By Melissa

We all give and receive love differently and understanding the love languages of those around us goes a long way in nurturing relationships. Insight into how your partner, friend or co-worker prefer to receive appreciation or affection enables you to affirm them in a language they understand.

Interested in seeing if one could apply the 5 Love Languages at work, we at Pomegranite took the 5 Love Languages quiz again to brush up on our knowledge. READ MORE

Liz’s sabbatical: The Camino

By Liz

During my three-month sabbatical, I walked the French Way, one of the routes of the Camino de Santiago, a 600-year old Christian pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela built on an older Pagan pilgrimage to what the Romans believed was the end of the world. It was one of the best things I have ever done for myself and I am so grateful to the amazing Pomegranite team that allowed me to take the time to do it.

It’s impossible to capture my journey in words so I’ll try to answer the most common question I’m asked, then move on to some simple facts, and finally share some images.READ MORE

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

The 10 priceless lessons you walk away with when you leave Pomegranite

By Alex

I was firmly convinced that my interview with Liz and Sarah had gone terribly. It was raining so my Devil Wears Prada inspired outfit was hidden by the only rain coat I own (a Shrek-green monstrosity I borrowed from an ex-boyfriend and never returned) and I somehow completely missed the lift at the end of the hallway in our Wale Street offices so I quickly walked up five flights of stairs and arrived at the door panting with my fringe slightly stuck to my forehead. This obviously all screams: “Hire me!”READ MORE

Ten things I’ve learnt in four years

By Sarah

A Facebook memory popped up yesterday – the first blog post I ever wrote for Pomegranite, right before I quit my job and joined Liz in the lounge of her little Long Street flat, which we called “the cave”.

It was written before we even had our own website, and was published on Blogspot. (When I told Alex this she LOLed at how old we are.)READ MORE

Fostering a culture of continuous learning

By Liz

We’re part of a world that continuously pushes us to become better at what we do. But to do that we need to upskill ourselves. For many of us, taking time at the office to learn something new sounds like a scenario you would only encounter if you worked in Silicon Valley. But that’s simply not true.

Goodbye 2016!

I think I’d been working at Pomegranite for less than a week when everyone told me about how excited I should be for our year-end party/inspiration day. Riyad even dubbed last year’s one as one of the best days of his life.

What to do when you make a mistake

I made a mistake recently. While it’s never a great feeling when you mess up, we learned a lot from it, and thought that was worth sharing.
