Although I have only been a full-time freelancer since 2012, I have been actively involved in the industry since earning my diploma in Graphic Design & Multimedia at Allenby East Rand in 2000.

Over the years, I have gained expansive experience in the creative field. I worked in the photographic and events industries, owned and managed a print shop, lectured first-year students on the subject of Graphic Design and lastly, worked for 6 years as a graphic and web designer for a decor company.

Opportunities started to present themselves when friends and family started looking for assistance with design work. Looking for a new challenge and a fresh start, I took a leap of faith and started running Grafix Reloaded as a full-time freelancer as of August 2012.

Thoroughly enjoying my work, I put everything into each project producing quality design and service.

I strongly believe in using the right tools to get each project done efficiently. I, therefore, subscribe to software packages such as Microsoft Office 365, Adobe Creative Cloud and CorelDRAW Graphics Suite. This ensures I have access to the latest versions of the most popular design apps such as Photoshop, Illustrator, CorelDRAW, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Lightroom and more.

Websites for a livery yard in Kyalami, moringa health products online store and an adventure safari tour company. Logo design for a civil engineering company. Design of 80-page catalogue for a catering equipment company. Currently looking after retainer clients in the following industries: lingerie & swimwear retailer, woodwork training, online shoe retailer, IT outsourcing, corporate skill training, livery yards (x 3 clients), financial advisors, furniture retailer, metal fabricators/distributors and decorators.
