Projects
  • Sunday Times – Times Have Changed
    Sunday Times – Times Have ChangedA campaign celebrating 100 years of the Sunday Times
  • Sandton City 'Come to the City'
    Sandton City 'Come to the City'Nelson Mandela Square and Sandton City is a luxury shopping destination and lifestyle hub in the heart of Sandton, Johannesburg. To relaunch their updated centre, the campaign line: 'Come to the City' was used across a range of collateral, from social media to outdoor sites.
  • Right to Sight 'Bandaid'
    Right to Sight 'Bandaid'A print execution from the 'Right to Sight' campaign for the National Council for the Blind (South Africa). With as much as two-thirds of blindness in South Africa resulting from cataracts, a simple surgical procedure was the way forward in restoring sight to thousands of people.
  • Spray & Cook 'Slip'
    Spray & Cook 'Slip'Usually a slipped printing plate on a full-colour print ad would be an Art Director's worst nightmare. Here, it was used to subtly demonstrate the efficacy of Spray & Cook non-stick cooking spray.
  • LG Express Dual 'Thinnest'
    LG Express Dual 'Thinnest'
  • Standard Bank  'Lawn'
    Standard Bank 'Lawn'The campaign parodied the cheap looking, badly art directed ads from a typical 'home-makers fair' catalogue on the left-hand page of magazines and newspapers, and then pointing out that buying a house makes far more financial sense, in a tactically placed strip-ad on the right.
