One of the things we firmly believe in and live by at Solid Stuff Creative, is communication.
That’s what we primarily do! – through design, photography and words. Don’t ever misjudge or underestimate the importance and power of the words you send out into the world.
Whilst our Words Portfolio focuses mostly on content creation, journalistic work and social media management, we also enjoy the fields of proofreading, editing and translating.
Lisel recently took on two fascinating proofreading projects for books written by seasoned and awarded authors: Hennie van Deventer (former head of Newspapers at Naspers), who wrote a most enjoyable book ‘Na verre hawens’ on his and his wife’s numerous experiences aboard passenger liners, and Gerard Scholtz of DEKATv fame, whose book ‘Hier gaat ons’ uniquely describes some of his and his wife’s multiple adventures abroad on two Honda scooters. Priceless.
We have also participated in compiling a coffee table book, ‘Fire Storm – Vlammehel’ on the devastating fire that destroyed scores of properties in Betty’s Bay in January this year and traumatized hundreds of people. Well-known retired journalist Henry Hopkins lost his life five weeks after sustaining horrendous burn wounds in the fire.
Besides a whole lot of editing, liaising and proofreading, our studio also provided a logo for the duration of the project!
