Telling Brand Stories
Web Design and Development | Hillcrest, Durban, KZN
Welcome. I'm a graphic, web and motion designer based in Hillcrest, Durban, KZN. I craft digital experiences for brands and companies worldwide through the use of clean website code, impactful design, professional photography and video. I've created printed and digital content for both local and international brands, and have recently completed a stint as a freelance designer for Barrows Global (UK) where I worked on brands such as Budweiser and Essity. Back home in South Africa I developed an intranet portal for Massmart and designed websites for hundreds of small to medium sizes businesses.
I also do photography and video, you can view my other website here.

She put some real effort into gathering the content and getting all the things together that I asked for during the…Read More
This post is just to demonstrate some of the motion design skills I’ve been learning. It’s not a client project, just a little animation video I made in Adobe After Effects which I sent to family and friends in the UK ahead of our trip there. It was really fun making it and I hope…Read More
