FRESH TOAST

Five online predictions for 2016

 

BY LOUIS EKSTEEN

Looking at 2016, our online lives will continue to evolve and improve. My online predictions for next year include the increasing impact of internet TV on traditional broadcast television and the way in which new living spaces incorporate an online lifestyle.

1. Online living

New lifestyle developments such as Waterfall City that mix work and living spaces, increasingly incorporate an online lifestyle. Fibre connections to homes and offices are built into these areas to enable a range of online tools that require fast network access. Internet TV, security and gaming take on a real time dimension with built-in fast access.

2. Voice assistants

Running your home will increasingly become voice-based via digital assistants such as Amazon’s Echo. Internet TV remotes for players such as Apple TV, Roku and Fire TV will all be voice-activated for convenient searching of entertainment. Security and other lifestyle management systems will be directed through these intelligent digital devices.

EXPRESSO

The year of more

More to do in 2016

 

BY KIM BROWNE

As we hurtle to the end of the year the word that sums up 2015 for me is more. More work, more clients, more pressure, more, more, more... We’ve grown our business, we’ve grown our agency and we’re blessed with an awesome team of individuals who just “click” and manage to create magic with sometimes insane deadlines.

A case in point is when earlier this month – during the busiest time of the year for us – a project client emailed on Thursday afternoon to ask us to help with creating an important content asset, for presentation on the Monday at an international event in Paris. We shuffled job bags around and delivered to brief on Friday, well in time. Happy client, happy us :)

It did mean we had to push new business out, but as the old idiom goes, “a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush”.

This month we were honoured that SmartRand was named as one of six international finalists in a prestigious Matchi fin tech challenge for Liberty Group SA.

Wildswinkel veilings launch

Dear Louis, Kim and team
 
We want to say a special thank you for the work you have done for us these past weeks. The team at Wildswinkel is still on cloud 9 after the successful hosting of our very first auction and the launch of Wildswinkel Veilings earlier this week. Neither of these events could have had the impact that it did was it not for our partnership with The Toast!
 
It is a pleasure to work with a team who collectively and individually have such a wealth of experience in a wide range of technical and creative fields and always says “Yes! We’ll make a plan” no matter the task.
 
Thank you for your commitment to deliver on tight deadlines, never compromising on quality or creativity. We can always rely on you to do our brand justice, to come up with both creative and practical solutions and to do that within record time. And to top it off, you always provide service with a smile!
 
We look forward to the next round!
From all of us at Wildswinkel
