A couple of years ago, I built the South African National Sea Rescue Institute website as a freelance project for an agency down in Stellenbosch, South Africa. The agency provided me with the UI designs and I built a custom WordPress theme to their specifications. It was a fun little project that mostly consists of blog posts, but it also offers an interactive, filterable map of all of the NSRI bases countrywide.
“Well Balanced” is the name of a company offering reflexology, nutrition and balance services in Cape Town, South Africa. I liked the idea of playing around with script fonts and watercolour for this project because the industry demands an atmosphere of nurturing and caring. The little foot icon ties in the reflexology with imagery and the background and foreground of this particular logo can be separated to create many different options for future branding needs.
Hug Insurance operates in Australia and offers Australia’s first single policy insurance solution. I built the front-end for the web application that allows users to choose what they want to insure and to get a quote. It is built as a Single Page Application (SPA) powered by Mithril.JS
VS Gaming is South Africa’s largest independent gaming brand and the leading platform for online gaming in Africa as well as one of the fastest growing digital networks in Africa. The website currently hosts a blog and a shop and I was part of the team that built the front-end for the website.
Cadbury needs no introduction as a brand. I was part of the team that built the site for South African shores. The website boasts a directory of products as well as delicious recipes for you to try and it was all built with a clean, component-driven approach to maximise reusability of features on future pages.
Just a quick, fun piece I did while inspired one day. I really like the use of basic geometric shapes and how they interplay with the intricate details of photo work and it’s definitely a style I’d like to explore more of in the future.
Back when I worked full-time as a visual designer I often got tasked with creating logo and corporate identity bundles. This was such a project. The client was very specific about the imagery that they wanted for their logo and I’m pretty proud of how it turned out, maybe sans the gear teeth they insisted on!
Meraki Preserves is a small husband-wife business endeavour that grow and bottle their own piquante peppers. A lot of love goes into their homemade product and I think I managed to capture that in the logo and packaging that I designed for them.
Quest is a gym in Bloemfontein, in the Free State province of South Africa. At the very peak of the retro and hipster design they wanted a retro-inspired logo for their gym. Currently the gym is going strong with the logo proudly plastered on the premises and promotional content.
When I redesigned the Shitanga Lounge website, I opted for high contrast and bold colours with eye-catching African elements that accentuated key areas in the design. Unfortunately the design ended up being unused.
