What makes us unique?

We offer you years of knowledge and expertise: our directors and management team have over 100 years of combined experience at Artworks! The directors perform the same layout/design tasks as the rest of the staff, making them hands-on, accessible and integral to the media production process. Our dedication to complete client satisfaction is the reason for our longstanding client relationships (some over 25 years). We pay attention to detail and deadline, hand deliver publications where necessary, allow clients to sit next to operators or occupy our studio and patiently guide them through the process. Not one publication leaves our studio without first being proofread – an essential value-added service that we build into the bottom line! 

BEE status

Artworks became a certified Level One contributor to BEE in February 2007. Artworks achieved a BEE rating of AAA+ by independent auditors, EmpowerDEX for the second successive year in May 2009. This qualifies Artworks as a Level One contributor to BEE as per the Department of Trade and Industry’s Code of Good Practice, a standard that we have upheld for eight years in a row.
