Concept creation

The focus at Thumbnail is to create as many good ideas as possible to enable the client to achieve their desired goals. Over the years systematic tools have been developed to ensure that not only do the ideas have impact but they fully communicate the required message and help pursuade the customer or user. Impact first, then communication followed by persuasion.

Digital design

The digital world is ever changing and Thumbnail utilises processes that keep pace with that change. Fully responsive digital design ensuring a design works on the ever growing list of devices. The power and flexibility of WordPress bolstered with coding expertise, enables the designs to be visually impactful, are fully optimised for fast loading and have great results in search engines.


Thumbnail understands that to create a strong brand means a lot more than designing a good logo (but that’s an integral part of it). Good brand creation also has to understand the feelings that consumers develop towards the company or its product. This combination of physical and emotional cues is triggered when exposed to the name, the logo, the visual identity, or even the message communicated.
