My background and career. As well as what services are offered.

 

BACKGROUND & CAREER

From doodling my way through school, building my own toys, and constantly customising everything in sight - a creative career was bound to happen. Soon after I completed my studies at The Durban University of Technology in 2009 I joined a small studio in Durban South Africa, that had built up quite a name for itself: disturbance. Whilst working there under the guidance of Richard Hart, I vastly expanded my skill-set.

A few years later in 2012, I set out on my own under the pseudonym 'Tokyo-Go-Go' as a freelance illustrator. Creating for dream brands and clients across the globe such as SEGA, Adidas & RVCA to name a few. 

Having been a part of a small studio as well as having spent some time working on my own, I had yet to dive into the world of big-game advertising. In 2013 this changed, as I was offered a position at The Hardy Boys where I learnt a tremendous amount over the next four years whilst climbing the ranks from Designer to Creative Director.

In 2017 the freelance bug was back. I left THB to begin the next chapter. Creating my own studio. A studio that places creativity first by not only pushing expectations, but also ensuring that a ton of fun is had while doing it.
