SAIMI’s primary purpose is to facilitate linkages and collaboration amongst role players in maritime research, education and training in South Africa, and with similar institutes in Africa. The Institute plays a much-needed linking role between industry and educational institutions, with the aim to strengthen maritime education and research through facilitating co-ordination and co-operation among education providers. Our brief was to develop the brand from scratch and market SAIMI both locally, nationally and internationally.


Taking inspiration from the ocean and SAIMI's corporate message, we developed a brand that encompasses both.


The responsibility of Yellow Lizard has been to uniquely position the Institute in the context of South Africa as a global leader in the sustainable utilisation of maritime resources. This has included the development of the Institute’s branding and provision of on-going marketing services, including social media management, event advertising, web design and hosting.
