After completing my diploma in Graphic Design at AAA School of Advertising with Honours and being awarded the top student I completed my foundation years at Grapplegroup in Johannesburg under the late Roy Clucas. 


In May 1995 I founded CODE, a Company of Designers in Greenpoint, Cape Town. I have been fortunate enough to gain extensive experience in graphic design and branding across many industries including education, sport, media, entertainment, food and beverage, financial services, IT, retail, fashion almost others. 


Over the years I have been directly involved in creating, consulting and collaborating on branding, brand strategy, brand identity design and architecture, packaging design, literature design, visual communication, brand re-consolidation and content creation. 


I currently consult to an in independent branding consultancy called G R \ F T, who specialise in brand thinking, brand creation, on-going brand development and brand management.


The word G R \ F T is a colloquial word used in South Africa for work. G R \ F T is managed by Jennifer Middleton and Wilma De Nysschen and directed creatively by myself.


We believe that our clients' success is crucial to our own success and that partnership, mutual understanding and respect is the cornerstone of every productive relationship.
