Hanlie Allan, a UCT Michaelis School of Fine Art graphic design graduate, succumbed to the lure of the countryside and settled in Stanford in 1999.
She established her reputation in graphic design in the corporate world with clients like Woolworths, Clicks, Metropolitan and Amstel and continues to design for clients like The Burgundy and Overstrand Municipality.
A fine graphic designer, Hanlie now uses her profession to express her love of the country lifestyle – good food, excellent wine and genuine rural hospitality - in marketing brochures and publications of her own design.
A passion for travel, writing and wine combined with almost a lifetime spent in the magnificent Overberg gave Glynis van Rooyen all the natural ingredients to enter into the publishing and communications business.
A graduate of the University of Stellenbosch (BA), Glynis is a professional journalist and has authored several travel guides and innumerable travel and wine articles. She has worked extensively in marketing the tourism attractions of the Overberg and manages exclusive tours.
In their business Overberg Promotions and Publishing, the owners are enthusiastically developing publishing projects to market the marvels of the Overstrand and Overberg.
