Copper & Coal Distillery Namibia

Copper & Coal Distillery Namibia

If you are 18 and above and you love Namibian Crafted Gins and Vodkas then you should take a moment and have a gander at our latest website ... and its products, obviously!

This site comes with a fully functional shopping cart that allows you to set up an order with Copper & Coal Distillery Namibia, no matter if you are an Individual or a Supplier. The shopping cart will magically calculate the discounts on certain items if they are bought in bulk, well, its not really magic, its just developer mastery... But I digress - the website also has a membership based service called the Copper Craft Club where you receive beautifully packaged and branded gift baskets of Namibian products every 2 months. On top of that they also have services such as online application forms for Gift Vouchers, Loyalty Cards, Corporate Gifts ... etc.

If you are an esteemed website designer, then there are some design elements worth checking out - especially the vertical lines that connect the headers of the content with the end of the content (if that makes sense), also the randomly generated gallery images that tease the visitor with a fresh set of 10 images every time the page is reloaded or changed and last but not least the subtle watermark images behind most headings that are also randomly generated.
What can I say, I'm proud of my Asylum team in rehabilitating yet another website!

Oshakati Premier Electric

Oshakati Premier Electric

After a few months of web based software development we finally launched the website for Oshakati Premiere Electric. Its actually our first take at a progressive web app, which basically eliminates the overall need for an actual app! To see these app like features, you will need to launch the site on your mobile phone.

In addition this website is packed with features, such as the Report It functionality, where the user can report a fault by taking and uploading a photo as well as allowing location services to pin where the photo was taken i.e. if there is an electrical hazard, one will be able to send the details to OPE.

Find a vendor which filters the table of vendors according to your location. It also shows you a google map with your location along with a radius where the closest vendors are.

Users can also Request a Call Out to their residence with the help of location services.

All of these functions are available to non-registered users, but so much easier and quicker to use once the user is registered, as all of the user details are pre-populated in the forms.
Once the user is registered they can also add their accounts and prepaid meters. This allows the user to request a call out to the location of a saved prepaid meter. And in the near future the user will be able to buy electricity from the website and choose the meter they would like to top up.

There is also an online chat available to registered users, which we designed and developed to ask questions, send photos, links and documents to an OPE representative.

Registered users also get notifications of scheduled power outages, when an account or prepaid meter is approved, when they have a new message in chat ... etc.

If you are an OPE customer, you should consider registering on the website and using all these tools.

Aucor Online Auctions

Aucor Online Auctions

Front-end development for the online auctions of Aucor Namibia. For this project we went through all possible auction websites around the globe and combined the most important features with additional value added and user friendly add-ons which make it easy to keep track of your auctions and as well as lot items. One of the best features is, that you can search for items with certain tags ... i.e. if you are looking for a fridge, you can look for all fridges within all auctions at the same time and then take it from there. Sadly this front-end has not been integrated with the back-end, but I am sure it will be soon!

Pointbreak Wealth Management

Pointbreak Wealth Management

In May 2020, Pointbreak asked us to develop front end designs and development for their Wealth Management platform. This custom responsive design was supposed to be a desktop and mobile friendly way of managing one's investment portfolios as well as some other value added functionality. It included statements, performance, tax certificates,  investment history, transactions, login-history, profile information, contact details and a cloud based filing system which allows you to upload all your important documentation - i.e. wills, IDs, insurance policies ... etc.

Central Technical Supplies

Another re-rehabilitated website by Asylum! This website has all the aspects of a custom built website. It has a user friendly content management system that allows the customer to maintain all areas of the website with seconds. The website's main custom feature is the relationship of all projects, product categories, product sub-categories, brands and products, which makes it very easy to maintain current pages as well as the support of an online store in near future. Its always such a pleasure if something like this comes together, and the client is happy!

Namibia Breweries Limited

Namibia Breweries Limited

We have designed and developed an interactive educational tour of the brewing process of Namibian Breweries Limited. The project includes virtual tours that allow you to walk around on the premises and click on certain machines and equipment to read more about its function in the brewing process or watch a video that takes you inside the machines. In this project we took the idea of a virtual tour and turned it into an information hub. Too bad we cannot make it public, for you to see, it was meant for internal use only.

Ultimate Safaris

Ultimate Safaris

Feast your eyes on our new FLAGSHIP website cruising above all tourism websites in Namibia! 😆 I present to you Ultimate Safaris. www.ultimatesafaris.na

About 11 Years ago I had my first meeting with Tristan Cowley from Ultimate Safaris and since then I have been doing their website and most of their branding - book covers, luggage tags, flyers, water bottles, corporate gifts, socks, aprons, the 10 year bash, etc. ... you name it, I was there for them and helped with the graphics! We occasionally fought, especially when it comes to using capital letters or not, but we never gave up on each other and look where it got us today - this website! We are so proud of this!

This website is the most custom solution we have ever built for a client - a choice of 3 pre-footer content sections, linking youtube videos, uploading your own HTML5 videos, scheduled tour calendars, mozaic galleries, parallaxes, animated counters, numerous JS animations and calculations and last but not least - loads of elephant skin backgrounds 👍... I mean just go and look at the pages e.g.:

But ... I will have to add, Tristan and I we sat hours, days, weeks, grinding on the layout, making sure there is as little white space as possible, statically building fully fledged pages so that we can see how it would look like and perform on different devices, giving us challenges we have never faced before, ... without all of this, and the spectacular imagery, video footage and Spitzenklasse written content and last and in no way least, Nurse Nadja's exceptional skills in development the website would not have been as nice as it is.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Tristan once again, and I'm looking forward to the upcoming projects we are working on! "To the best Tour Operator in Namibia!"

Oh and before I forget: We also built a small attendance register that allows the front desk to have an overview of the people currently in the office. If someone leaves the office for coffee, a meeting or annual leave, they add the event minutes before the occurrence or schedule it ahead of the time. There is nothing worse than having the receptionist put you through to a phone that is never answered, or tell you that she does not know where the person is.

Melbic Car Retals, Transfers & Tours

Melbic Car Retals, Transfers & Tours

Where do I start?! Melbic Car Rentals has been with us for ages, and I would dare saying that they are one of the technologically advanced companies when it comes to their website. Apart from just their they have an automated quote and booking system we developed that allows the agents to get costing in their own time / timezone. These quotes automatically adjust the pricing according to high or low season rates and can be converted into fixed bookings. The fixed bookings allows them to keep track of the availability of their fleet, incoming funds, automating notifications, ... etc. A helpful tool for the agents!

Journeys Namibia

Journeys Namibia

Journeys Namibia has quite a unique set up - all their lodge's websites are interlinked with one another and share information, such as itineraries, activities, news and specials. This makes updating the information quite easy - they only update the information on the Journeys Namibia website and all the other websites are automatically updated. We didn't just redevelop their website, also developed a virtual tour software for them. The virtual software can be found here: Virtual Tour.

Real Estate Virtual Tour

Real Estate Virtual Tour

A few months back I met a Real Estate Agent, and I ran her through a couple of ideas on how one could advertise high end properties more effectively, or uniquely,  especially now in these tough times of pandemics and economic crises.  I offered her to do an informative fly through / virtual tour of one of her properties. After a short time she asked me to join her to a farm in the south which they have been trying to sell for a while. I spent 2 days there to capture the footage - virtual tours, photography and a video. After a month the farm was sold! Enjoy the footage!

Barkhan Dune Retreat outdid themselves again! When I was told that they had created 5 new chalets I had no idea how beautiful and genius they would be! Along with the chalets, they created an entire limescale filtering system, gray water recycling as well as solar power that supports multiple air conditioners! Brakhan Dune Retreat, in my opinion, is one of the iconic lodges in Namibia!
