Our philosophy is quite simple: we believe that effective comms in the digital space hinges on three fundamental questions:
1. What is the purpose of your message?
2. Who is your audience?
3. What media is best suited to delivering your message?


Trust, honesty and discretion are crucial in our line of business. Which is why we are absolutely delighted with Comms 101 - they have shown all the above, along with patience, understanding and professionalism at all times. They captured the essence of our brand and products perfectly and our customers simply love their work!! We recommend them for any project big or small and will work with them for many years to come. Thank you Comms 101!!!

David Gallant - Creative Director

Janizol Adams - Systems Engineer

Janizol is the quintessential techie and was once heard to remark: "I've been outside a couple of times. The graphics weren't that great." Janizol joined the Comms 101 family in 2012 and has been hand-coding websites both large and small for more than ten years. He literally thinks in binary and thrives on producing systems that work - with a sharp focus on the people that will use them.

Mel Bowers - Training Specialist / Accounts

"Mel B" (as she's known around these parts) loves teaching and is passionate about sharing knowledge and empowering others. She holds a teaching qualification and has held positions at Northlink College and Damelin respectively. A qualified accountant, Mel B embodies the spirit of Comms 101 by teaching others to communicate simply and effectively. Her enthusiasm and mild-mannered approach instantly puts people at ease and "makes them teachable." Her words, not ours.

Elaine Mears - Print & Signage Specialist

Elaine specialises in print and signage and consults for Comms 101 from time to time. She has worked for some of the top signage companies in South Africa and is generally considered an authority on all things print-related.
