Recent Work: Gestion Corporate Gifts

I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to design and manufacture some corporate stationery for an engineering firm called Gestion in Pretoria.

The client requested a gift that he could circulate to clients that would be useful, look great and remind them of the Gestion name all year round.  Instead of the typical diaries and calendars which are distributed in abundance at this time of the year, we decided to go with some Eco-friendly notebooks and pens that look beautiful and are durable for site use.

Although I did not design the logo, I think it sits very well on the eco friendly backdrop of the kraft toned recycled board on the book covers and pens.  I delivered the order to Gestion last week and hope that all their clients and associates enjoy the product.

If you are interested in design and / or manufacture of stationery and promotional items for your business, contact me, I'll be happy to help!   You can learn more about Gestion Engineering on their website.

Holiday Things

The holidays are coming up!  It's Summer, the end of the year, Christmas time and the promise of the New Year!

With Holidays, there are loads of pretty wonderful holiday things to have and give as gifts. 
Here is my board of Have to Have Holiday Things.
It's all local and it's all pretty awesome!

I'm so excited to close the chapter of one positive year of being independent, doing things my own way and really making my life the best it can be.  Yay Holiday!

Paper Snap Exhibition at Wolves, JHB

I'm a great fan of the amazing screen print work and illustration by Telri and Steven of Paper Snap, previously known as Paper Jet Design.

These two are super talented and create the most beautiful illustrations made doubly beautiful by their reproduction technique of Screen Printing!

I've blogged about them many times (because, did I mention I'm a massive fan?) and am so looking forward to their exhibition at Wolves, Johannesburg!

If you want to learn the art of Screen Printing, you can read about their lessons here.

Places: Kaap se Hoop - Mpumalanga

Living in South Africa is amazing.  There are so many beautiful places and spaces to see and I'm so lucky to be surrounded by beauty near and far.

Kaap se Hoop in Mpumalanga is known for its population of wild horses.  No one knows how or where they came about.  They add a layer of mystery and legend to the stretch of highway between Nelspruit and Kaap se Hoop.

The natural forests in this region are beautiful, especially when the mist settles among the trees. 

It's a beautiful place and worth a weekend visit.
