For SA Rocks I was requested to rebrand their online presence and capture the spirit of what SA Rocks is about.
What was involved was heavily customizing the Gazette Premium News WordPress Theme, coding additional modules to the design, splashing the template with bright South African colours, and testing the theme in numerous web browsers.
The end result is a happy, colourful branded website that will hopefully improve the user’s experience on this wonderful website that is proudly promoting South Africa and all of it’s wacky characteristics.
“After reading the incredibly upsetting anti-SA blogs from expats around the world I decided to make a stand. This blog is that stand. I am standing up for all the good in SA. For all the great things that SA citizens do and for all the people who love this country. I love this country and I believe in it and the success that is soon to come.” Source: SA Rocks About Page
The final logo that Nic and me agreed upon has a strong resemblance to the Superman logo. It portrays a powerful, striking image that portrays a message of hope for South Africa. It hopefully portrays Nic’s stand to fight for his country and spread the good news 🙂
The site template uses every facet of WordPress’s extended functionality and allows it to function more as a magazine/newspaper site than your typical journal entry blog.
