ABOUT COBB–
ABOUT –

Hello there…We’re  Can O' Baked Beans, a web design and development studio based in Johannesburg. We design and build digital products that add value to our clients while delivering magical experiences to their users.

We work with founders of startups who need help getting their brand online, small to medium-sized businesses looking to refresh their online presence, and other creative agencies and groups who require our service offerings and are looking to partner up.

Our services include Product & User Experience design, Web design, Webflow development, Brand development, and Creative direction.

Founded in 2012 by three friends who met in high school, we officially opened our doors in 2014 from a pool house in Joburg’s East Rand. In 2016, we transitioned from turnkey design and development solutions to focus exclusively on User Experience design and Web and App development. Today, the business is run and managed by the last remaining Founder, Mohit Sooka, who is a lead product designer and senior design consultant by trade. A man who’s been in the trenches and seen it all over a 15-year design career.

At Can O' Baked Beans, we believe in the combined transformative power of design and technology and how it can radically transform businesses and organizations. We're passionate about creating beautiful, functional products and experiences that exceed our clients' expectations.  So come on down, let's have some fun and build something amazing together!
