HCI Supplier Club - Interactive Business Directory

The Client: HCI (Hosken Consolidated Investments) is an investment holding company listed in the Financial Sector on the JSE. HCI owns companies in various economic sectors with investments in Hospitality and Gaming, Transport, Mining, Property, Business Services, Media, Energy, Manufacturing and Branded Goods.

The Brief: Through the HCI Supplier Club, the HCI group of companies joined together to identify and support small enterprises. As part of this initiative HCI approached Brave Media to develop a modern business directory which could be used to seamlessly connect both the members of the supplier club and HCI companies. The Business directory needed to be a user-friendly business tool that would effectively allow businesses from across South Africa to interact and trade with one another.

The result: An elegantly designed highly interactive business directory, with hyperlink functionality and the ability to evolve with the HCI Supplier Clubs ongoing development. This project included the following design services: Look and feel development, Brand identity integration, design conceptualisation, graphic design, copy writing, proof reading, digital publication as well as regular ongoing maintenance.
