Stephen W

I am a Johannesburg based graphic designer and illustrator who is passionate about all things visual and creative. I am highly respectful of deadlines and pride myself on delivering professional and high quality work.

I am constantly pushing to learn and develop as a creative.

I have a BA (Information Design) from the University of Pretoria and have been working in the graphic design and illustration industry for a number of years.

I have three years experience working in an ad agency, working on accounts such as Kodak, Duracell and Soviet Jeans.

Since then I have done work for some of the country’s top publishing houses like Macmillan, Via Afrika, Lapa and Maskew Miller Longmann.

After finishing AAA school of Advertising in 2003, I landed an internship at The Jupiter Drawing Room JHB, where I ended up working as a junior designer for 2 years. Clients included Discovery Health, Planet Fitness and Weleda natural remedies. Mostly branding, BTL campaigns, type-setting and illustration.

In January 2006 I moved to London and managed to get freelance work with Firedog Design for 3 months. They took me on permanently after that and I worked there until April 2007. Clients included BBC, DJ, and Liquid Telecom. Mostly branding, illustration, flash animation and web usability.

Following a month long retreat in Costa Rica in May 2007, I returned to South Africa, where I have been freelancing as a designer / illustrator. My clients have included Blue Moon Customised Communications (Absa, FNB, SAB, Discovery Health, SAMA Awards, Airports Company South Africa, Eskom and Sasol), It's A Go (Doctors Without Borders, Southpaw Solutions), and Iris London (Sony Ericsson).

Recent projects I've been involved in include visual strategy maps for corporate education and awareness, internal campaign identities and concept / storyboard art.

My goal is simply to keep honing my interpretive and illustrative skills, as to create ever more arresting visual communications through print and digital media.
