Far too often staff have to attend dull and unimaginative corporate events. However, when Alexander Forbes approached Kelly Kreates to design their internal corporate events I told them to be prepared for fun. 

We incorporated bold colours and brighten up their space with linens from Tablecloth Hiring Co. 

The first event, held at their new Boulevard offices in Woodstock, had a tropical theme. The venue was very ‘corporate’ with grey carpets and white walls – to change this we brought in green linens, delicious monsters, golden pineapples and fresh fruits. When guests walked inside they were whisked away to a tropical forest. 

Later this year they hosted international clients and wanted to showcase their corporate colours. As the event designers, we opted for orange Persian linen and asked our laser design partners, Red Hare, to design “Welcome to Cape Town” coasters for the guests to take home. 

Overall the feedback was amazing! The staff commented on the new energy and creative flair at their corporate events. We couldn’t ask for more than this. Happy clients are all we need. 

We’re excited to design more events for Alexander Forbes in Cape Town and beyond.
