Vimage Media officially started in 2009 with its roots in Johannesburg. As time went on, the services expanded into video work, DVD production and corporate services. Corporate services became an exciting addition to the portfolio that included creating training videos for large multi-national corporations as well as consulting to ensure the brand corresponded to the desired corporate image. Thus began the focus for Vimage Media into brand consulting. This also introduced an interesting dilemma. How does a company that provides artistic wedding services also provide professional corporate services? Quite simple really – just combine the two and a unique value proposition is born. Whose better to provide artistic weddings with a team-based professional approach? And whose better to provide professional corporate branding services than the ones who’ve experienced personal shoots with artistic touches?
