Tom Peters hits the nail right on the head: “Design is about passion, emotion and attachment. It should be at the heart of every business.” Design is more than making things look pretty, it’s strategy and intent. Design can communicate a company’s values through its logo, and unpack your services through your online portal. Design is something we all interact with on a daily basis, choosing whether to buy Pepsi or Coke, or handing over your business in a meeting.
I’ve always known I was going to be a designer. I’m a fanatic! I can’t get enough of good and bad design. I aspire to greatness by moving shapes and colour into a creation that makes sense (most of the time). I’ve lived in London, missed the South African warmth, and have come home to create my own niche of design, where anything is possible.
Most of all, I’m trying to remember what I felt like as kid. That warm and fuzzy feeling you got before your birthday, or wanting to help every abandoned animal I saw. Design is what drives me, it’s anything I can create and mould: branding, web design, publishing, interiors and photography. It’s what feeds me most in the world and I hope to share that with you.
