Very little post processing with the HDR except maybe a tad bit more saturation.

Kappikappi concept bike. This was used in a lot of promo material until the first real frames were build.Knowing what I know now of contemporary Industrial design I would really push the design a LOT further.

Digital painting (A2) used as a promo poster. The original size of the image was about A3 landscape. The concept bike was replaced with the actual bike frames build in china. I used the 3D models I created to help arrange and visualize the final designs.

One of my digital paintings for Kappikappi. I used a more freely painterly style instead of the more linear approach I did with the other designs. Also, all of these paintings needed to be colorful and 'light' as was emphasized in the whole brand's approach.

One of 8 different robots developed for the TMS Industrial Group company. This robot was designed for the Topflight devision - specializing in hydraulics and pneumatics. All my character designs started as thumbnail sketches then full colored pencil drawings that were submitted for review and then the final 3D design.

Final 3D character design for Kappikappi. When I was originally employed I was approached to see if I can actualize a character for the company. My interest in artistic human anatomy played partly a role for receiving this 'treat' ;).

This was more of a look-and-feel design for Bitstream, a IT company in Cape Town. I used vectors and photoshop being inspired by some 3D shatter styles I have seen floating around the web.

Personal design for Kappikappi. I was playing around with the two K's in the brand trying to see where it leads me!

This design was created for a girl's winter clothing range for Kappikappi. Both a summer and winter version was created. The winter showing the brand name enveloped in snowflakes and in ice blue; the summer in flowers and leaves all in orange, yellow and red.

This logo was designed for a company supplying casino equipment across Africa and Europe. A LOT of ideas were suggested during the process but they finally and eventually settled on the playing cards.

Suidlanders - South Landers. A organization in South Africa trying to help people who are exposed to violent crime in the country. The teardrop is actually a referral to a biblical verse and suggests pain and sorrow. I build the tear around the A to be used as a stand alone 'logo' during their Aksies or Action (taking action). Their is a lot of layered symbolism hidden in this image.

Logo design for a political and historical book publisher in South Africa. They were looking for something a bit more simple and old fashioned. The name, Vaandel Uitgewers can be translated as Banner Publishers - much like a banner carrier.

About Me:
I am a freelance Graphic Designer from South Africa specializing in a variety of design fields from web to book cover designs, digital illustration and corporate identities.

In 2003 I went to study at North-West University and after graduating with B.A. Graphic Design I have worked for a graphic design firm called Colorspoon. Clients included the TMS Industrial Group and many other higher profiled companies.

After a year colorspoon was branched out into a local Sport clothing brand called Kappikappi. Here I was exposed to the clothing industry and developed a number of T-shirt and other clothing designs, a few of which can be seen on my website. I also needed to develop some 3D-design skills to help give as much visual reference and accurate data as possible to Chinese factories...
