I completed a batch of 51 Illustrations for Cambridge University Press in February 2012.
The technique was a combination between hand colouring with watercolours and digital colouring with a tablet. The work was for a Grade 5 Life Orientation handbook.

We need to consider many factors when developing a logo, such as Intrinsic & connotive meaning, as well as production mediums
Logo Design can be quite a science. We need to consider many factors when developing a logo, such as: Intrinsic & connotive meaning (the colours, fonts and abstract symbolism all play a role) as well as production mediums (can it be cut out in vinyl, embroidered, be used in a letterhead on a Black and White fax, will it fit in a Facebook Page profile block etc). I believe the client should also be happy with the end result, since he or she will be one seeing it and working with it daily. This makes logo design a bit of a to and fro process until we reach the final design. (Usually about 3 Sets of proofs and a couple more reverts with changes from the client)
The following gallery shows some of the logos I have either designed from scratch, or refreshed/updated, some in collaboration with others, and the rest mostly my own work.
elegant, relaxed & romantic
Jeffreys Bay Photographer, Christelle Landman, asked me to build her portfolio website towards the end of 2011. She wanted a romantic yet approachable feel, since she specialises in wedding photography. She has the ability to put the couple at ease and find interesting and unusual angles and features to photograph. I also designed her business logo and corporate Identity.
A fun client and ongoing project! I have done various designs for them, ranging from developing their corporate ID and website, all the way to their stationary, email signatures, marketing material and internal documentation such as their Operations Manual and Franchise Proposal. I have also illustrated a wide range of "Frog" Characters specially for Funky Frogs, as well as the illustrations for a 20 page Funky Frogs colouring book. I have also done various flyers and programmes, advertisement designs, a growth chart, a merit chart and even their vehicle branding.
