Fox & Owl - About us

Who is Fox & Owl Media?

Fox & Owl Media is a digital media branding and website boutique who makes magic with your online presence.  The boss around these parts is Melissa – I’ll introduce myself in a bit.  I love working with entrepreneurs and business owners.  Creating a strategy for your digital communications is my particular passion.  “Strategy” is a fancy way of saying that I create goals and a particular plan for what you’re putting online – from your website to your email marketing plan.  Your communications with your audience must be clear and engaging to get them to fall in love with your brand, products and services.

Here’s what I do for you:  I design websites – whether you’re starting from zero or whether you have a website already and would like a refreshed design and extra fancy stuff. I believe that everybody should have a beautiful online home.

Why did you call your business “Fox & Owl”?

Digital media is all about using the available tools and information to create a strategic plan for your brand. Information without a strategic plan to put the data to use will do nothing for your business.  A clever strategy without the information to support it will also not help your business’ growth.

I have honed my Owl skills and make use of reliable information, and a great deal of wisdom drawn from experience, to make informed decisions and implement them creatively.  The Fox skills help me to create strategic plans to make the best use of the tools and assets available.  Together, Fox & Owl” represents that special combination of logic and creativity, intelligence and strategy.

The Team

Melissa de Klerk

Melissa De Klerk

Writer, Website Designer, Digital Media Designer, Typophile, Inspiration Junkie, Yogi

I am the owner and creative brain behind Fox & Owl Media.  I love building strategically designed websites and have considerable experience with Social Media Marketing, Website Design and Brand Management.

When I’m not behind my desk building websites, writing copy and creating pretty images, I love practicing yoga.  When I am behind my desk, a big mug of tea is always nearby.

I get unbelievably excited about technology and software, stationery, British comedy and typefaces.  I quietly judge people who still have Comic Sans installed on their computer.

On Sunday afternoons, I can often be found on the couch perusing Instagram.  I’m happiest when my daxie, Milo, is curled up in my lap while I watch the Great British Bake Off with my husband.  I bake an amazing spiced almond hot cross bun cake and make my own granola.
