About Us

GAWK was established in 2015 through a merger between two major players in the South African exhibitions and display industries, namely: FSD and Podd.


Through a relationship dating back eight years, we have forged strong ties based on mutual respect. Podd also served as an active collaborator on the development and application of the renowned FSD tensioned fabric exhibition system, manufactured in South Africa and distributed throughout America, UK, Australia and Brazil as Triga. Podd’s roots in the South African exhibition and display industry date back more than thirty years.

With mutual aspirations to grow our respective brands and an existing desire to optimally service our clientele, the founders of both companies felt it a natural progression to join forces in order to achieve their common goals. The marriage of skills and resources both brands bring to Gawk are set to bring tangible value to current and future users of our products and services.

Gawk’s vision is to become an industry innovator with a reputation for unparalleled service and delivery, yet remain completely approachable at all levels while genuinely taking our clients’ aspirations for branding success to heart.


True to our name, we strive to exceed our client’s expectations, so our staff is always encouraged to achieve the levels of service they themselves would be impressed by.

We have qualified engineers (the technical people), business professionals (the clever people), designers (the creative people), marketing staff (the talented people), and a mean production team (the efficient people). Each person’s role and know-how impacts our final product in a BIG way.


Being engineers of ALL things visual, from corporate identity to display, our advantage is our ability to service clients from a total solutions perspective with the added benefit of research and development to ensure you remain on the cutting edge of marketing campaigns.

Digital Printing

From digital printing on a variety of media, printing on self-adhesive vinyl, and the manufacturing of print and cut decals, to dye sublimated printed fabrics, we provide printing solutions to meet your every need.

Our large format digital printers secure striking graphics on PVC, vinyl, textile, contravision, canvas and wallpaper for commercial application.


Product Development and Design

Our industrial designers offer unique product development capability to provide optimised solutions and customisation to suit your unique needs.

This includes research, evaluation, conceptual development, engineering development and prototyping. Our clients can in other words be assured of innovation.


The bulk of our products are not imported, but manufactured in South Africa, which makes lead times shorter and ensures quality driven delivery. It also allows for better stock control as well as the added socio-economic benefit of a locally manufactured product.

Large format printing takes place in-house which counteracts delays, incompatible graphic formats, poor execution, and eliminates external supplier capacity issues. This also gives our clients the peace of mind that we are able to honour our product warranties. Our product support includes maintenance, replacement of parts and strong supplier relationships to secure the best value for our clients.


Our activations department completes our ability to offer our clients a full service solution, from design to implementation as well as technical support at installation and set-up, by friendly, well-trained and capable staff, offering unparalleled service.  Ticking off all the things that you would need in a crisis situation.

We further ensure that you save time and money on sourcing peripheral products such as brochure holders, banners and printing, since we offer this as part and parcel of our service. We have a significant amount of industry experience for your peace of mind.
