Walvis Bay - Leandrea Louw

Horizon Signs and Designs based in Walvis Bay will be opening a brand new shop with a variety of items on offer.

The new shop will open its doors at the end of August. It will showcase a variety of pre-printed products. In addition, Horizon has recently launched its fashion apparel for men, women and children which will also be available in the shop.

Horizon offers top quality yet affordable vehicle branding, ABS and Corex boards with prints, business cards, flyers and posters, business signboards, sign-writing, light boxes, mug printing, T-shirt printing, wall stickers, canvas prints, graphic and website designs for SMEs as well as wallpaper that fits clients’ desired design.

Horizon was established five years ago, and the driving force behind it is Azaan Sitzer, who is passionate about art and empowering his community.

Sitzer has been in the signage industry for about 11 years, and pursued his career as a graphic designer after he completed grade 12 in 2008 at Rehoboth High School.

“Art, especially drawing, has always been a part of me. While I was still at school I started making tattoos. It was a means of survival for me, as I grew up in very harsh conditions. It started small, but grew larger later on. A few years after I decided to pursue my dream, of starting my own company specialising in graphic design and printing, and here we are today.”

He says that he is grateful to the handful of individuals and the Walvis Bay community at large that have supported him from the start of his business.

“We offer our clients the most effective angles to approach their marketing needs and effectively build their brand. We offer a truly octangular marketing experience, from client service to the final product.”

Horizon employs 14 people and initially started with Azaan solely handling all the printing and signing aspects of the business.

“What makes Horizon different from the rest of the printing companies, is that we are a team of creative individuals. We leave our creative signature on each project we take on, instead of sticking to the usual protocol. Our image over the years is a clear indication of how we creatively evolve over the years.”

Empowering others

Sitzer is also working closely with Reinholdt van Wyk, who has been teaching boys woodwork as an after school programme for the past 14 years.

“This is a matter very close to my heart. Growing up, I was part of a drama group and this was a place for me to express myself. Too many boys wound up choosing the wrong path, with no one to guide them. I felt I needed to help such boys. To me that drama group was my saving grace. Other aren’t always so lucky. I just want to create a ripple effect, spreading to the next person.”

The furniture these learners are making will be exhibited in the shop and can be bought.
