We Create Presence
Welcome to our world
We’re Horsepower, a boutique Brand Identity & Digital Design agency based in Cape Town. We believe that every business starts with an idea and we want to help you present the best version of that idea to the world – by creating a memorable and meaningful digital presence.
We use visual energy and clear communication to tell your story in an imaginative and engaging way.
what we do
Finely Crafted Creative Services
The world is a crowded and noisy place. Our goal is to give you presence, by providing the finest creative services combined with excellent strategy and inspired design.
Good design catches the attention of your viewer. Good branding helps you stand out and adds a deeper, intangible layer of resonance. It offers an opportunity to connect with your audience in a meaningful way. Resonance is why people want to engage and buy your products or services. However, resonance comes only from authentic branding – one that is rooted in truth.
We assist you in discovering what makes your business truly unique, and create a brand identity that is memorable, meaningful and easy to communicate.
Whether you are starting a new business, or want to refresh an existing brand, ensure you present the best version of your ideas to the world.
We know how to tell a good story.
With a degree in English and a background in creative writing, we focus on the ‘art’ in articulate, which makes our copy clean, compelling and concise. Our work includes hell-raising press releases for Harley Davidson, sensitive and insightful biographies for artists, and a host of creative copy for websites, social, newsletters, invitations, brochures, magazines and blogs.
Every website we design begins with the simple question: “What do you want it to accomplish for your business?”
We design memorable and effective websites that focus on the users’ experience and guide them to take the desired action.
Why have a website? A website is a digital presence which creates visibility, credibility and an opportunity to engage with your ideal audience. We’ve worked with international corporates, local businesses and solo entrepreneurs – assisting them to come alive online.
Print: We design collateral that visually conveys your brand’s identity. This includes logos, letterheads, business cards, brochures, gift cards and print advertising.
Images add a splash of colour to a black and white landscape.
A great, well placed image can speak volumes. Content marketing is about telling a story and creating a closer connection. Horsepower takes stylish photographs that engage your viewer, support your content and save you a thousand words.
A Selection Of Projects
Horsepower was inspired by our desire to harness the power of creativity to help businesses to blossom.
We love the feeling of being a small, hands on team that meets all our clients, from global brands to local businesses and enjoy working closely together throughout the creative process.
We team with talented people, which enables us to undertake a wide array of creative projects.
