Emcon Consulting Group
Introducing another captivating project that offers enhanced functionality to streamline website navigation for visitors. This project is designed to provide an effortless user experience, ensuring a user-friendly journey. In essence, our custom CMS empowers website owners to create projects and select the specific services offered within each project. This selection enables visitors to navigate directly to the desired service and explore detailed information about it.
Through the implementation of "cross-linking," we have made the website journey significantly easier and more convenient for visitors. For instance, when a visitor explores a particular project, they will find a list of services associated with that project. These services are clickable, allowing the visitor to access additional information about the service itself and discover other projects where the service has been provided.
Ultimately, this guided journey of information ensures a seamless and engaging experience for visitors. Without the incorporation of cross-linking, this journey would be far less convenient and considerably shorter-lived.
Ugab Game Farm and Lodge
In November 2022 Ugab Game Farm and Lodge contracted us to design and develop their website. The lodge was newly established and partially still in construction, thus all we had to work with was a logo, but in the shortest time we planned a trip to the beautiful Damaraland and within a week we shot all the photography, virtual tours, time lapses, drone footage, ... etc. seen on the website. This visit was all we needed to inspire us with the design of the website.
This week was so action packed, filled with game drives early in the morning and late in the afternoon, seeing antelope species I didn't know existed, directing a bunch or tourists who we borrowed from a nearby lodge to model for the photos and drives, making fires and the typical early mornings for the Golden hour photos, also known as the "Money Shots"! :D
That was a busy week and I think it definitely payed off. Again, thank you for a great week and for the opportunity to let us show what Asylum is capable of.
I think we ended up with a stunning product with a ton of variety in media and interactivity.
Collexia Beyond Payments
Collexia is live! What a fun design to work on.
Traditionally websites have a horizontal navigation, but this comes with the drawback of having limited space for the needed navigation. It is the responsibility of the designer to get as much information to get a good feeling of how big the navigation might be, and in this case it was just a little more than usual.
The client handed me a few brochures and a corporate profile, which both had Dunes and the Hexagon shapes in the design. Which is exactly why i used these in the website design:
- The hexagon graphics as frames for the people profile pictures, news and info-graphics.
- The Dunes with the parallax filling the white space for a seamless full-viewport page design and a sense of depth.
This full-viewport design pushed the content area into a manageable with which makes text much more legible and the 16:9 images scale quite perfectly.
As for the client, well, they were awesome! Friendly and understandable when it came to more information I needed to "fill" the website with ... yes, content. 😃
All in all, I really love how this turned out! I am looking forward to expand the website with upcoming additions!
Lewfin America LLC
Our first website based in America! Lewfin contacted us to create a short term loan / personal loan website for one of their American branches. The website is quite a small one, with only 6 pages, but from a design perspective we did our best to accommodate the available content. At least now Lewfin will have a good starting point and the possibility to expand into many more pages.
Virtual Tours have always been our strong point but lately clients have been enquiring about standard photography and video as well, which is why we expanded into these areas. Show all
Barkhan Dune Retreat 2023
Up until now, our responsibility at Barkhan Dune Retreat has encompassed capturing all the photography. However, we often felt a vital component was absent from our shots - the presence of people. Consequently, we were graciously invited to Barkhan Dune Retreat not only to photograph the rooms, facilities, and activities, but also to showcase the inclusion of individuals within these captivating frames. Furthermore, our task entailed capturing images of the recently unveiled KuanguKuangu, an opulent self-catering unit majestically perched atop a mountain peak.
Enjoy the photos!
Ugab Game Farm and Lodge
Ugab Game Farm and Lodge is a newly established high end lodge with luxury accommodation in Damaraland. Their top end rooms are equipped with a personal coffee station, a fridge with ice cold water, and a massive outside shower and bathtub. The linen of the king sized double beds are made of Egyptian cotton and the rooms have a magnificent view on to the waterhole where a vast variety of animals roam and feed.
They offer lengthy Nature / Game Drives in the shadows of majestic trees growing in the Ugab river. It is near guaranteed that you will see wild animals in the Ugab river, since they prefer the lower temperatures therein. You will most likely see herds of Eland, Gemsbock and many other species unique to the farm.
Here are some photos we took at Ugab Game Farm and Lodge.

Barkhan Dune Retreat 2022
And another successful visit to Barkhan Dune Retreat. This time we planned a quick sunset photo shoot at the Spreetshoogte pass. The sunset was spectacular with all the little clouds filling the sky and giving the photos an additional flare! After all the good rains this year the grass was standing at hip height and has that classic golden shimmer as the sun sets.
Medical Imaging requested us to take photos for every service category on their website. This was a super fun shoot, since the staff at Roman Catholic Hospital and Mediclinic are extremely friendly and photogenic. Lighting and space in the hospital is a real challenge, which is why some of the images look distorted and or the white balance is off.
Taking photos of the MRI machine was a nightmare considering if I get too close it will suck my camera into the magnetic field and damage the multi million dollar machine, or it will simply corrupt all my photos on the SD card. That was quite worrying to say the least.
We are also doing the website which is still in the works, but these photos will replace the stock photography they are currently using on their website.
