Testimonials & Clients


  • Daryl Bartkunsky
    Student Brands has been pleased to work in partnership with Hydra Media and are delighted with their creative approach to design. They have worked on a number of our major clients who have been happy each time. Their willingness to change, be flexible and continually create better than what we see we see in our minds have produced amazing results for us.

  • Lisa Steingold
    We brought Prasan and the team from Hydramedia on board in 2016 whilst in need of assistance with visual representation of our brand in various aspects. Prasan and his team delivered some excellent work in the form of infographics and also assisted above and beyond by helping us with logo formatting and cleaning up some of our brand elements. I would not hesitate to recommend them to a brand looking to entrench the brand offering through visual communications.

Frequently Asked Questions


1What is a managed design service?
Our managed design service combines all of the necessary skills required to support your business without the need to keep an in-house design and marketing team. Our team includes designers, copy writers, developers and project managers who are experienced in supporting businesses like yours.
2Why do I need a managed design service?
Building an in-house team to manage your design & marketing efforts can be impractical for many businesses. For startups and small businesses the expert skills and support you need may be too expensive, especially if you don’t need those skills constantly. What’s more, even if you hire someone for a full or even part-time placement they may lack one or more of our specialist skills.
3How does the managed service work?
Your investment entitles you to a set number of hours per month. Our tiered pricing is structured to benefit organisations where a permanent design team is not practical as well as agencies that require our specialist skills. These monthly hours accommodate for the work hours of designers, copy writers, web developers and a project manager to make sure that your requirements are met in a timely fashion. At the start of each project or task we will assign a number of hours which will be deducted from your monthly total.
4What if I don't use up all my hours in a month?
In cases where your billable hours are not used they will be carried over with a 30 day rolling window period.
5What if I need more work hours in a month?
You will be advised if a project may incur additional hours before we begin or if the requirements change during production. We will occasionally propose new projects to ensure the maximum effective use of your budget. At the end of each month you’ll receive a brief report on the number of hours used, any overages, and any other relevant information you require.
6How much does this service cost?
Our current standard hourly rate is R500/hr, however as a managed client you can look forward to savings of up to 20% on your monthly design and marketing requirements.
7Does this price cover third party services and assets?
No. Assets and service that are required for your projects are quoted for, purchased on your behalf and billed for separately. This is to ensure that the licenses for any assets remain with you rather than us.
8Will I own the work you produce?
Yes! You will own all paid work that we produce for you and your business. We do, however, reserve the right to use any work we produce for promotional purposes.
9Are there any other benefits?
Our creative team is experienced in identifying, planning and executing a wide variety of design and marketing tasks. Hiring us to assist your company may open up new opportunities through our insights from years of working with businesses just like yours.
