Formative is an ambitious design studio that delivers bespoke live event, stage and exhibition architecture that breaks the mold and gets noticed.
We combine ingenuity with experience to create spectacular one-of-a-kind stages, sets and productions and reshape expectations by pushing the envelope.
At Formative we are obsessed with developing unique ideas and flawless execution. We rethink bespoke live event, set and exhibition architecture from every angle and work within the intersection of design and technology. By employing bleeding edge innovations in our field, we never fail to amaze.
The founding partners have a proven track record of more than 20 years local and international experience between them in creating and managing unique, captivating experiences from concept to completion.
By setting ourselves strict design objectives, we build experiences based on aesthetic, theme and content. Every minuscule element of the stage and set production is carefully considered and specified to the finest detail to ensure that we deliver on the execution of our concepts.
Attention-grabbing content is generated to bring the production’s vision to life through clever narrative design, obsessive art direction, specifically commissioned video content, 2D and 3D animation, lighting and sound effects.

Our d3 Studio
Formative is the currently the only company in Africa to own and operate the d3technolgies video production suite. We have the in-house knowledge to design and sequence the most complex of productions. We have a full d3 studio environment where we can pre-program and pre-visual entire shows.
What is d3?
Design. Sequence. Control.
d3 is more than just a media server. Based around a real-time 3D stage simulator, d3 is the single solution to design, present, communicate, sequence and playback your show.
