#YourSmilesMakeTheirs - RapidStudio Walks for Smile Foundation

RapidStudio is always proud to support good causes and one of our favourite traditions is to Walk the Talk. This year our charity walk was to raise funds and awareness for the Smile Foundation, an amazing non-profit healthcare organisation that helps hundreds of children every year who suffer from facial conditions, such as cleft palates.



Our day began with a delicious breakfast (It was so good, we had more at lunch!). RapidStudio hit the streets full of cheer and made three teams with special songs and selfie boards written with #YourSmilesMakeTheirs. We also had two bright yellow morphs bopping around too, which attracted lots of smiles and laughter.



Joining us were some amazing singers and dancers from Anstey's. Wow!
Those kids have infinite energy! Together, our unstoppable enthusiasm was greeted by great interest for the work of the Smile Foundation.



Walk the Talk made us so proud to claim the city streets with many worthwhile charities, each brimming with good vibes.

Earth Day - Supporting Our Future

This year’s Earth Day is all about Environmental and Climate Literacy. As custodians of this amazing planet we all need to learn how our actions can help or hinder the environment. Here’s a few of the things we do to reduce our footprint…You can too!


Recycle RapidStudio sorts waste before collection. We learned it improves recycling so made a special sorting area in 2014. We can all learn and improve to help the environment.

Rainwater Using rainwater tanks not only saves money, it saves the environment too! We collect water from a quarter of our roof and will collect even more next year. Small steps make a big impact. We can’t wait to see how much we’ve saved!

Energy RapidStudio generates 1/3 of our power through renewable energy. We’ve made enough to power 10 small homes for 4 years! That’s the same as running the ICE-3 high speed train for 3200km. Impressive! You can also save money and power by switching to low energy lighting. We made the switch in Jan 2015 and went an extra step t…

Love The One You're With
This two part series is packed with pro tips from South Africa’s talented professionals and outstanding instagrammers who use mobile cameras in a pinch with outstanding results.

A famous saying among photographers is that the best camera is the one you have with you. That mobile phone you have in your hand is a powerful tool for capturing and sharing magic moments. You don’t need a pro camera to capture brilliant shots. A mobile may land you those quick creative shots you’d miss if you went running for another camera.  We’ve got proof!

Colour to brighten your life. Greenery

Green is a colour of vibrancy and power. It’s a symbol of growth and renewal, of endurance and natural wisdom. If you’ve been looking for a colour theme to freshen your business or brighten your home, look no further than green.


GREENERY PANTONE 15-0343
Greenery is a natural neutral too; a colour to escape the grind of modern life and travel back to our roots, a colour of pause and reconnection. Green awakens a deeper truth inside us, a raw reality. Delve within and green writes us an unflinching poetry of our true self and our relationship with our wild and beautiful mother earth.

The official Pantone Colour of the Year is a zesty yellow-green. Pantone are colour specialists and they select symbolic colours every year that represent our global culture and the changing moods and attitudes of our busy lives. 2017’s selection is fresh and restorative, a cool change to revitalize the spirit.


Join us at RapidStudio and get a dose of greenery into your life. We are celebrating the green th…

Join the Rescue and Revive the Rhino

RapidStudio is proud to announce our support of Gina Boxley'sbook which raised funds for Fundimvelo Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage. We are humbled by the dedication and compassion of Gina, her team and the team at the orphanage and encourage everyone to get behind the amazing work they do in rescuing and rehabilitating rhino calves orphaned because of poaching.




Not only does the orphanage care for the young rhinos, they prepare and train them for release back into the wild. It is a noble cause to preserve the iconic and endangered species.
They have helped many orphans of poaching including baby elephants. Gina created a very special Ubie Ellie photobook to raise much-needed funds to save orphaned babies. When you bring Ubie into your life you will be helping other brave orphans fight for survival.





Did you know a five-month-old rhino calf drinks thirty litres of milk every day? You can support Gina's efforts and help save a brave little soul without a mother. Every little bit helps!
