A little Bit About Us.

Creativity is a wild mind
and a disciplined eye.
Dorothy Parker

Silvergate is a small but fiercely focused multidisciplinary design studio, based in the city of Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. Despite our locale we service clients across SA and indeed around the world. Created and run by Michael and Amanda Cramer, we’re a husband-and-wife design team that has been adjusting kerning and adding bleed since 2009. Our clients range from single-person startups to internationally recognised brands. The simple love of Design and a true desire to see our clients fully succeed in reaching and enthralling their audiences is what drives us.

Our clients include

Core Expertise


If something is useful, but it is not also beautiful and usable, we do not like it. We think to the perfect outfit to introduce you to your customers: that it’s your brand or the right interface to reach them.


There is no idea that we can not make digital. We design, build and manage all-in-one solutions with a technological mind and a creative heart.
