TATZ Creative Media is an independent multimedia and marketing service which provides for your business promotional needs, such as graphic design, videography, photography, professional portfolio development and online presence SEO management. We also help building foundations and architecture for your online businesses from scratch to live system.
Before there was TATZ, there were 3 seperate categories of skills offered to clients. Today, all those modules became one.
The current market is evolving at a rapid pace, now more than ever. If a business delivers but isn’t able to present itself to new customers or clients, then this is where that business will get stuck at with no motion forward. It is as simple as opening up a bit to new possibilities by going the online path. Analog work such as flyers and ads are still there, but people have become too overcrowded with physical “stuff”. So we are all racing forward inside a virtual world with no harm done to the environment.
Data is the thing of the future, may it be SEO analysis, visual branding of a business, understanding what and where the fish are, it is in everyone’s interest to see, act and expand. TATZ Creative Media offers a vast variety of different approaches on handling the task of business branding while adding artistic value to the cause. You provide the vision, we provide the solution.

Copywriter, Editor, Secretary
Sabine Jahnke is a qualified English and German Teacher and has a BA in English and Psychology from the University of Pretoria. In the past she has taught both children and adults, using her passion for language and people in the field of education. Having grown up in Windhoek and Pretoria she has learned to love Southern Africa, with all its diversity and commonality. Her interest in different cultures and people is the reason she now uses her skills at LTC Cape town, teaching English and German to locals and foreigners alike.
In her free time Sabine assists us in keeping our language clean and correct. She sometimes even throws in some outrageous slogans to sweeten the deal. If you like German bluntness, mixed with a bit of English courtesy and Afrikaans good humour, you will definitely enjoy the ride.
Ps: Je parle un peux français, mais n’est pas bien. Translation: 6 years of school French has only taught me to say ‘I can’t really speak French’ in French. So take my bio with a pinch of salt, as every good potjie should be.
