We are graphic designers in Pretoria, South Africa. Please have a look below to see the services we provide.
I can create a corporate design for your business including letter heads, business cards logos and more. It is important that these materials are not generic but fully embody your company's function and ideology.
I will design a look and feel for your advertisement or poster and position the text and imaging in an esthetically pleasing way. You can make suggestions on the direction and provide materials to use. I will make sure that your product look striking and targets your target market.
I select the optimal font, feel and style for your layout as well as possible printing techniques, binding etc. Each project needs a unique look and feel suited to the design in question and I provide just that.
Sometimes you have the information you want on the cover of a book, but you just need someone to create a striking layout to help sell the product. Contact me and I will assist you by providing this service.
Every magazine looks different. People tend to take magazine design and layout for granted, but it is a huge job. Hire me to design your magazine's look and feel or provide layout services for an existing or new magazine.
Need a certificate for an occasion or event? I can design certificates with various fonts, images and concepts for you. I not use templates for these. Foil stamping and gold foil stamping can be used to get shiny lettering etc.
If you need visualization of interiors, architecture, characters, mechanical parts, or just about anything I can model, texture and light the scene, or build objects in 3D and render quality 3D images for you to use. It makes a clear difference when your architectural visualization, or other rendering looks professional.
Images are created in 3D software so various angles can be rendered. These 3D images are then superimposed using coloured filters so you can view them as 3D with red and blue stereoscopic glasses, just like those ones they used to use in the cinemas before the new 3D technology became available.
Hire me to edit your corporate video, advertisement, wedding video, or any other video material. I have edited many corporate videos for various clients in different industries. I use Adobe Premiere for most of my editing. I also have some Adobe After Effects skills which come in handy when using video effects. It is important to incorporate effects in order to stand out from other products.
These are created as flash or video presentations. The perfect way for you to draw attention to your project, or invitation. I can create digital art for this or it can all be done with moving logos, text and designs.
If you need visualization of interiors, architecture, characters, mechanical parts, or just about anything I can model, texture and light the scene, or objects in 3D and render quality 3D animations, or stills for your to use.
If you need moving visual animations of spatial designs, architecture, prototypes, characters or any kind of animation, I can provide you with the services you need by modeling, texturing, lighting and rendering the material in 3D.
Animations are created in 3D software so various angles can be rendered. These 3D animations/videos are then superimposed using coloured filters so you can view them as 3D with red and blue stereoscopic glasses, just like those ones they used to use in the cinemas before the new 3D technology became available.
I have done various illustrations for books, articles and comics. There are many different kinds of drawings and this service will usually include 1 or more of the following 5 services.
This is the basic act of producing a clean well-drawn pencil drawing with, or without shading which can then be inked, digitally painted or shaded to make an artistic drawing. For a comic style result the shading will have to be done in a vector style. One of the important factors for the comic penciler is to work in a clean way.
The pencil lines are digitally colored with a black line that has varying width, weight and curves. This gives character to drawings and in usually used for a comic or graphic novel look. The inking process is essential in giving an illustration it's fleshed-out look and is arguably the most important step towards the final artwork. As a comic inker I used to ink in adobe illustrator, but have now found that Photoshop is a much better program to ink in for most purposes.
The inked drawing is flatted with basic colors and is then colored with various gradients, marquees and shades. This can be smooth or heavily vectored. A comic colorist can have a huge impact on the look of the final art work, or page look and feel.
This is a lot like coloring but it can be done with or without inking and can be done with or without pencil/charcoal shading. This technique creates a more artistic feel.
A pencil or charcoal drawing which is shaded like any fine art drawing. This can be digitally painted or left as is. You can commission me to do a work based on the subject matter of your choice, or you can inquire about my existing works.
I can draw you family members, whether it is a picture of one person or a group of many. These drawings often need to be larger than most drawings when there are various figures in order to keep the details and keep the figures recognizable.
I can also put various figures from different photos into one composition on the artwork. For this service I prefer to work from photographs rather than live models in order to make sure that the resemblance is clear.
These can be professional or silly depending on the requirement. Objects and drawings can be added to photos, or photos can be combined. Colors can also be tweaked and marks can be removed.
These can also include photo manipulation, but are more based around digital effects with logos and art incorporated into the look. Perfect for posters and desktops.
I can clean up the skin tone, color and lighting on your photos, including removing skin problems and enhancing certain elements of beauty. These can also be pushed to extremes for desktop designs and can include the creation of elaborate backgrounds.
If you need a software package developed, but you want to make sure you know what you are getting into before-hand, this is an excellent choice. I have done work with large internal systems for the AA Training Academy which involved designing a very extensive interface and creating an HTML preview for that interface. The preview is completely click-able and allows the client to see what using the program would be like before spending a bundle of cash to get it developed.
I have taught courses at government institutions covering Adobe Photoshop training, Adobe InDesign training, Adobe Illustrator training and Adobe Acrobat Pro Training.
For the same courses I have created video tutorials for Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Acrobat Pro.
Small groups and bands can be organized for functions and background music. Style preferences are required. This service is only available in and around Pretoria / South Africa. I am particularly fond of small jazz or blues bands and gigs
I can write, arrange, record, mix and/or sequence music for presentations, movies and projects, or for any other application. Requests in any styles are welcome. I can also help to write and arrange solos and ideas for existing projects.
I can unlock/decrypt a file that has been locked with Encrypt4all, or Folder Lock and some other programs in about 5 minutes. I charge very little money for the service. Just send me the file, I will unlock it and tell you what's inside. You then pay for the data I send back.
