Wild in Africa

828:design enjoys living vicariously through its clients. Wild Rainbow African Safaris allowed us to imagine amazing expeditions through Southern African countries. We were thrilled to work with Jody Cole and her team on their new branding and website. Her safaris offer one-of-a-kind, tailored experiences of “exotic animals, mystical plants, magical birds and the welcoming people who live amidst some of the most breath-taking landscapes in the world.”
