    SOCIAL-ETC is a division under Talent-ETC. Seeing that a lock down is now part of our reality, this will allow the statistics for social media to increase even more. Consumers cannot leave their houses so they are doing everything online. Allow our social media brands, influencers & celebrities to drive these online sales traffic to your brand/product. We are the social difference.

    I’m a graphic designer offering design, illustration, video and web design. Websites and html newsletters are our bread and butter services.

    E-commerce websites are a personal favorite.
    I also get a real kick out of maps and directional signage.

    Videos now hold a very useful space for YouTube, training and general communication because we are now limited in our personal interactions. Video gives a face and personality to you and your company.

    I’m associated with Solid Gold Podcast studios so audio communication is also available.

    I’m based in Randburg/Fourways, but fortunately mine is an industry that can be briefed and delivered online in digital formats.

    CoolerBox Brothers is a one-stop-everything-you-need type of production house. The only thing that drives us is to create content that viewers regard as “MUST WATCH”.
    At CoolerBox Brothers we believe that content is king. We work with only the best creative directors and crews SA has to offer, to entertain and inspire. We’ve been involved with feature films, TV shows, commercials, documentaries and music videos.
    One of our latest projects, “Konings van Kitskos”, is currently rated as one of the best Afrikaans shows on DStv.
    We’ve also been involved with hugely popular artist such as Naaq Musiq and Euphonik creating and producing music videos.
    On numerous occasions we’re asked, where did the name CoolerBox Brothers originate? As film students attending university, our everyday routine consisted of packing a cooler box with beverages for the day and tagging it along with us. We were always known for having a cooler box in our presence, from class to film set. This ultimately became our very own trademark. From then on, we were known as the CoolerBox Brothers. No project is too big for our team.
