Gavin Rajah’s Jaipur inspired show for SA Fashion Week 2011 was lavishly filled with opulent jewel tones, mystery and exotic detail. He wanted the invitation to some-what transport the viewer to a magical Indian hide-away.
The palette was inspired by the ‘Pink City’ itself and the 3D box was printed in the same style.
All the extras and finishings were added: custom die lines, spot varnishes, metallic inks and foils to complete the Jaipur experience.

Caren Waldmen from Two Two Luxury Basics asked me to create illustrations for her range at SAFW 2014. These 4 cats were created from images of her Burmese cats. They were printed in red and white on contrasting sport luxe garments and represent the ultimate in luxury lounging - something that cats do exceptionally well.
Parenting in a Box
Parenting in a Box is a conference for parents in Cape Town. I created the logo to represent a literal interpretation of fitting it into a box. The rest of the identity and illustrations juxtapose the logo with a sense of organized chaos. It's playful, wholesome and filled with cheerful nostalgia.

These tags are inspired by my quintessential Christmas holiday. It usually involves a picturesque road trip through the fynbos covered Garden Route, sunny days lounging at the coast, the hum of sweet 'Christmas' beetle songs in the evenings and the smell of my Mom's soetkoekies baking in the oven.

Heartfelt is an annual women's event at Common Ground Church. The brief for 2013 was to create something fresh and crown-like. I used layers of watercolor images that I had painted to create a beautiful, soft illustration. This application was also rolled rout across the update logo for that year and digital elements.
This invitation for the Street exhibition 2012 was derived from wanting to help people view their streets from a new angle. I created a view finder to motivate this.
