Posted on Jun 11, 2012 in Design |

My publishing design career started in 2006. Over the years I have worked at a variety of companies (permanent, contract and freelance) on a broad selection of titles. Since I began freelancing in September 2011, I have helped out on titles such as ELLE, Telkom 365, Discovery Health, Jet Club Magazine, Leisure Boating and Ina Paarman publications.

More extensively, I have worked on Edgars Club Man, House and Leisure, Good Housekeeping SA, SiyaOnline (online digital magazine for FNB), iMag, mytyd, Transnet’s ONE, and WegSleep (including the 2013 WegSleep Oordgids). I am currently art director on the quarterlies Weg/go! Platteland, Life Healthcare magazine and kykNET Digityd, as well as freelancing at various publishing/media companies.

Life Healthcare: At the beginning of 2016, I began art directing on this quarterly medical magazine that gets distributed in Life Group hospitals countrywide. It’s packed with interesting medical articles and the real challenge is finding the right stock photography to portray often serious topics.

Angel Investor: Baybars Altuntas, chairman of the World Business Angels Investment Forum (WBAF), wanted to create a magazine that he could share at WBAF 2017 in Istanbul. It’s filled with interviews with influential investors, articles on investment in different countries, as well as highlights of the conference.

Weg/go! Platteland: This is an exciting and editorial jam-packed quarterly magazine that celebrates the rural lifestyle – geared towards those who already live out of the city and those who daydream of doing so someday. I have been privileged to art direct, design and illustrate for this magazine from the very beginning and together with my incredible editors (and extended team) we strive to continue creating a beautiful and interesting product.

WegSleep: A successful Afrikaans monthly magazine that was born out of the Weg! brand, WegSleep focuses on camping and resorts around SA while also showcasing new vehicles, trailers, caravans and equipment. For four months in 2013, I was responsible for its layout and ultimately ended up taking on the mammoth task of designing the 2013 WegSleep Oordgids – a 100-resort guide complete with photos, resort maps and info.
