We have just completed and gone live with a website that we are really excited about. NSR MTB contacted us a while back to commission us to create the first fully dedicated South African Mountain Bike online resource. It has been quite a journey but everything is now in place and already their news and information is rolling in.

The video was photographed by Marcus at 5 and 10 frames per second using the Nikon D3 DSLR and then the 39 000+ photographs were narrowed down and about 15 000 of the were individually graded and then edited at Melon Videos resulting a FULL HD music video with a “jolty” feel to match the son.

We support a few non profit organizations / charities and one of them is 3D-Outreach.

3D-Outreach is a non-profit organization seeking to reach out, across borders, to the needs of the whole person through being a resource and support to existing long term outreach.

Last night we shot a few photos of the team that they will be sending out with the Christmas Newsletter.

Please have a look at their site on and show them some support for what they are working hard to achieve.

Melon Graphics was recently contracted to create a personalised blog for musician, Alan Shenton (Harris Tweed, Cassette and Zebra & Giraffe). We created customised headers, colours, fonts and additional navigational pages for Alan using the features of wordpress, so that he would still be able to update and add blog posts himself.

This is the ideal website for a musician, artist, band or even an individual.

We were in our local newspaper today – The Bedfordview and Edenvale News. Here is what we had to say…

We at Melon Graphics South Africa would be really sad if the pine forest is taken down for yet another shopping centre.

Marcus Maschwitz (owner of Melon Graphics South Africa) recently did a photo shoot with up and coming South African band HARRIS TWEED and the theme is quite fitting. The concept of the photo shoot was to create a feeling of the two band members (Cherilyn and Darryl) camping in a dark forest with intent to cut down the trees to create a clearing, when the forest trees get angry and tie them up and hold them hostage! We loved how the concept worked in favour of conservation. We used this particular park for the dual purpose of petitioning against the proposed shopping centre and for the band photography.

I myself am getting married at St. Francis in the wood in December and would be devastated if the trees are gone before then. We chose this quaint chapel because of the beautiful surroundings.

We are only two people and the removal of these trees directly effects us both.

Sarah Shenton.

SO, we had a little (HUGE) problem to deal with this week and it’s been absolute chaos. Basically, our entire house (and offices) has burnt down to the ground leaving VERY little (if anything) left to work with. Besides entire memories being destroyed, we have been trying to sort out so that we can get our work out like we normally would. We have made a plan though and apologize if we have been slow or late with any work this week.

Thank you to everyone for the support, help and understanding during this time. It’s appreciated more than we could ever show.
