I am a graphic designer that creates bold, tactile and sensory pieces whether it is for marketing, products, fabrics or my own work. I am deeply influenced by Africa and often apply this aesthetic to my work, either visually or conceptually.

I started working in Cape Town and London before co-founding Daddy Buy Me A Pony, which rose to be one of South Africa's top independent design studios. During this time, we launched the award winning "Afro" magazine which gained a dedicated international following.

In 2008, I moved to Brooklyn, New York. In addition to my commercial design work, I co-founded Mr Somebody & Mr Nobody that makes African inspired domestic curiosities, as well as a another playful line under the name Extra Fancy.

I have been published in magazines (including Communication Arts, Print and Elle) and books (including Textiles: The Art of mankind by Mary Schoeser), have exhibited in galleries and museums (including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Wolfsonian in Miami) and won numerous awards (including Clio, One Show and D&AD).
