The portfolio session is a work in progress and is currently being updated on a regular basis, please come back to see what is new!
Y-design is a small Cape Town (South Africa) based graphic design, web and illustration studio. At the moment I am a one-lady show, but I outsource work to other partner designers and developers if needed on bigger projects.
With technology (and Skype of course) these days my clients are not restricted within the South African borders, but I have clients and colleagues/partners scattered over Europe and also in The States.

“Creativity is intelligence having fun.” – Albert Einstein
I love anything related to design/arts, travelling, exploring, meeting new cultures and am a bit of a foodie as well.
My work experience: Job shadowing at the Jupiter Drawing Room (An early intro to award winning advertising), 2 years experience at a Cape Town advertising company Brainstorm advertising in charge of many brands, 2 years full time freelancing experience and 2 years experience in the corporate field at then RMB Unit Trusts, now Momentum Investments and Momentum Asset Management.
I’ve been freelancing since 2014 again after I decided to pursue my own venture once more and has been loving it ever since.
“Designing is a matter of concentration. You go deep into what you want to do. It’s about intensive research, really. The concentration is warm and intimate and like the fire inside the earth – intense but not distorted. You can go to a place, really feel it in your heart.”Peter Zumthor - Swiss architect
