I am a senior graphic designer and an experienced problem solver.
My graphic design approach is a collaborative process between myself and my client. Together, we are crafting a unique garment. Apart from the physical sizing and scope, we have to communicate, evaluate, educate, and re-evaluate the garment’s purpose, format and. The garment has to fitted, tweaked, re-fitted and finished. It is a process of understanding, communication and education, using my passion for design, typography and photography to craft client briefs into mutual creative solutions.
I started the Visual Partners Design Consultancy in 2001 in South Africa. My concept is based on long-term business relationships. To be able to build these relationships, I formed partnerships with suppliers, created strategic teams and outsourced services I could not provide. The result is a network of companies and individuals who listens to our needs, understand our businesses and markets and act in our best interest.
I am skilled in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Capture One and MS Office as well as liaison with clients and overseas printers on digital work flow, color management and international printing standards to ensure accurate colors and high quality final products
Creative design and development, brand standards, investor relations collateral, information graphics, corporate literature, editorial design, educational books, exhibitions, packaging design, wine label design, travel brochures and digital photography all form part of my portfolio.
