Hello. I am a freelance digital designer based in Cape Town.

I collaborate with clients to create designs and interfaces that are beautiful, user-friendly & on-brand.

UX & UI Design

User Experience should be the foundation on which your product or service is built. Services include user interface design, wireframing, prototyping and user testing.

Visual Design for Results

I use conversion centered design principles to assist users in reaching YOUR goals, whether buying a product online or reading a blog article. Landing pages welcome.

Art Direction

A polished visual experience will ensure your marketing deliverables communicate and perform consistently across multiple channels, campaigns, media or screen sizes.

Brand Identity

A great logo is memorable and makes you stand out from your competitors. A well designed identity must work accross multiple applications, sizes and formats.


Need graphs or charts styled, infographics visualized or icons customised? Often these are neglected, at the cost of the overall user experience.


I partner with experienced developers and agencies to deliver custom or theme based Wordpress solutions. Ecommerce and blog design are key specialities.
