It’s really great how available the SALT team are, especially for our many last minute requests. It’s almost like having a designer right here with us. The best part was that we could completely trust the SALT team to represent our company professionally as they made themselves part of our brand and treated it as their own"

The easy accessibility to all team members contributes towards achieving an outcome that allows us to approach them with repeat and hence new business.  SALT is assisting us currently in the fields of website design, creative interpretation of our thoughts and concepts leading up to visual material such as posters, various forms of hand-outs/leaflets and slide presentations. We have approached SALT on a few occasions with difficult tasks and short timelines and on each occasion they came through for us and we in turn have delighted our clients.

Mint Language Consultancy

"I recently worked with Craig and the team at SALT Brand Specialists to reinvigorate MINT Language Consultancy’s corporate identity across the board. They developed a new logo, website and variety of complementary corporate stationary. The team did a superb job of breathing new life into my brand, whilst retaining the best features of the previous CI. The team is creative, thorough and extremely responsive. What also truly differentiated SALT was the team’s ability to provide meaningful input on strategic and advisory levels – a testament to their combined decades of experience. I recommend SALT unreservedly."

The Salvation Army

"The Salvation Army Southern Africa Territory started our journey into websites with SALT Brand Specialists and have never looked back! Craig and his staff sat tirelessly with us while we were in the design and developmental stages of our website, and still to this day assist us with tweaking and adding as we need, often at short notice and with shorter deadlines. We are blessed to have a partner who is not only knowledgeable, but also patient, creative and always willing to assist. Thank you Craig and staff for everything."

"Craig and his team at SALT Brand Specialists, have for years been instrumental in realising our corporate identity for very effective marketing purposes, adding excellent value and accessibility to our overall brand. Always available, the team knows its field well, is always on-hand to seamlessly visualise our concepts, to iron out details, and is extremely easy to work with. Not only has SALT put an informative and easy-to-navigate website together for us - which they additionally host and regularly maintain - but they also help produce various material for us, including our annual membership directory booklet, occasional newsletter layouts, business cards, and other marketing elements for us, all of which in a very cost-effective way."

The Windmill Gifts

"I have loved the relationship that The Windmill built with SALT Brand Specialists over the close to 10 years that we have worked together. Craig is personally involved in every aspect of the business and is passionate about both his business and the creative work that is done by SALT. Supported by an able team of young creatives I always feel that we are understood and heard in what we want. As a small business owner Craig’s advice and input into our marketing campaign is highly valued and appreciated – as we all know it can be lonely on your own, but I always feel that Craig understands what I am trying to achieve and that we are working together to create it!"

The Salvation Army

"I have engaged SALT Brand Specialists on a number of important projects on behalf of our national head office, their work has made a significant difference to our website and multiple platforms of communication within The Salvation Army in Southern Africa. This work was a little daunting for us as The Salvation Army and for me personally, I did not know where to begin, what questions to ask or, truth be told, what I really wanted to achieve. Craig Rietveldt and his team at SALT did everything with almost no time or effort. I found that I could completely trust the team to professionally represent The Salvation Army and the particular focus of each project. Their obvious creativity, cost effectiveness and faithful commitment to achieving excellence with each endeavour gave me a great sense of peace and confidence in presenting to The Salvation Army communication tools that have been challenging, appealing and focussed on the values of our church and organisation. Consequently, our websites and in-house projects, assisted by SALT, have been viewed, visited and referred to with increasing measure within our organisation. I cannot speak highly enough of SALT and the value and interest they have generated through their partnership with The Salvation Army."

As a new entity we have been guided and assisted to capture our vision and heart in a very clear profile.

Surface Coating Technologies

"SALT Brand Specialists designed and developed our new website and we are thrilled with the result. Our website was transformed from a couple of very uninteresting pages into a very professional and slick-looking offering. We feel this will attract many potential customers and give them a good idea of what we’re all about. Craig managed to capture the technical nature of our business in the design, and used colours in keeping with our logo – which was also designed by SALT. We were excited to end up with a product replete with visual animation and information on all of our product offerings, including the technical specifications. We enjoyed working with SALT and maintain a good working relationship with the company. They display a high level of patience and understanding with all of our requirements and edits.  We believe SALT is also a cost effective solution for our company design requirements."

Markus Mändlein I Caroline Mändlein

Surface Coating Technologies - Directors

"We have had the opportunity of working with SALT Brand Specialists since 2007. Craig has a profound understanding of our industry, and was therefore able to guide us while developing a website for us as a brand new company, that was not only professional in appearance, but also drew many positive and complimentary comments from prospective clients and colleagues alike. Umtunzi Exhibitions grew exponentially over the years, and we know that this was also because of Craig and his team’s input and constant encouragement. SALT have also hosted our website and provided us with an excellent social media service. SALT re designed our website, Facebook and email recently, and again, have provided us with a “winning formula”. We look forward to many more years of being part of the SALT family."

Charmaine Venter


"SALT Brand Specialists has worked with this College over many years in developing a range of products for us - including a major re-branding, extending our product brochures, managing and providing content for our annual advertising campaign, newsletters for stakeholders and donors, as well as designing and producing security certificates for our graduate certificates. It has been a pleasure working with Craig and his team, their professionalism and approachability have made it an easy and constructive relationship."

Craig Dunsmuir


"Working together with Craig and Paulo from SALT Brand Specialists is a real pleasure. They are very efficient and we are very pleased with the design work produced for our social media, print adverts and website. We have worked on a number of projects that have included video, that have exceeded our expectations. They are happy to engage with any brief and offer sound advice and suggestions for campaign elements that we may not have considered. Nothing is too much trouble for the SALT Team!"

Gillian O’Shaughnessy


“I have worked with Craig and SALT Brand Specialists for over twelve years now and there is no one else that I will get to do either my design work or my website work. Craig’s dedication and commitment to his customer extends beyond any reasonable level of service. He works tirelessly to support his clients and to offer advice and suggestions. I consider Craig to be a friend rather than a service provider to my business and I value his input and advice. He is an asset to any dream team of suppliers that you build.“

Marylou Bawden

Clear-Path - Founder and Managing Director

“Our school has worked hand in hand with SALT Brand Specialists since 2010 (a year after our inception). They have helped us build our school ‘brand’ and ‘image’ over the past eleven years. I have found them to be extremely professional in all that they do – Craig is always willing to visit and discuss a ‘brief’ or new advertising strategy.  He is eager to try a multi-media approach in order to maximise our advertising exposure over our advertising periods.

SALT also help us with our on-line parent surveys as well as collating and tabulating the data. They help with our end of term school newsletters as well as enhancing and adding relevant school dates and details to our social media platform. If you are looking for an agency that is affordable and willing to work with you to build your business and brand, I would like to suggest that SALT Brand Specialists is well worth considering."

Nicola Forbes

Hartford College - Principal

"I recall we were looking for an affordable yet reputable marketing company back in 2014 and SALT Brand Specialists has since then more than delivered. They manage our all our marketing, branding and social media accounts. We have experienced far more positive reactions to our marketing and brand as a whole. They took the time to understand who we are as a company and gave us an amazing marketing strategy. We wholeheartedly recommend SALT Brand Specialists to everyone we know."
