I am a professional Graphic Designer, Photographer & Brand consultant with 25 years of experience in the business of building brands. In 1988 I graduated from Rhodes University with a BA (Fine Arts) Degree, majoring in Graphic Design. In 1993 I designed the new South African emblem "the Protea". It was during this project that my real passion for logo design started. The creative design process followed by the development of the corporate identity and the management of the brand is for me an incredibly rewarding experience. My skill and love for photography only developed later in life and grew out of a necessity to have good quality images to use as part of the graphic design service I provide.
As a consultant I see my role as being that of a professional guide. I’m there to create the foundations for a successful brand. All logo’s and brands have a measurable value in the modern business world. It is crucial to nurture an understanding of the true value of consistent application of the logo. A client who takes their own corporate image seriously will also command respect in the marketplace.
There is no true value in only providing a design of a logo and walking away. The design phase of a corporate logo is only the initial start of the branding process, using effective design principles and consistency in application and marketing is what building brand value is all about.
I am married and live in the beautiful and unique historical town of Swakopmund, on the Atlantic coastline of Namibia.
