Make your brand stand out with timeless and sophisticated design
Design is the silent ambassador of your brand
– Paul Rand
They say you only get one chance to make a first impression. If your perfect customer met your brand for the first time, would it be love at first sight?
Would they get the feeling that your brand is exciting, clear and a must-buy? Or will they find it cluttered, confusing and bland? Do you look like you don’t know what you are doing, or are you able to instil trust that your brand is the one they have been searching for?
Whether you are just getting started, or looking to revitalise your brand, we can help you bring your vision to life with timeless sophisticated design.

This is the fun part – experimenting and exploring to give you multiple design options to choose from
Step 5: Revision
With feedback and collaboration, we refine until we get to the chosen design

What they say about us
Oto is a creative genius! In our need to refresh and revitalize our brand, he was able to quickly understand the essence behind the brand. This was soon translated into some of the best design work I have encountered in this industry. He is top of mind for future recommendations!
Christine Jawichre (Blue Platinum Events)
Oto was able to understand my world and interpret it to the global standard, which left me feeling highly passionate about pursuing my vision. What I appreciate more, is that he was patient and handled different opinions professionally and with great respect. May he continue to SOW the seeds of wisdom.
Ayanda Khubeka (Seeds of Wisdom)
Communicating a concept or idea to a creative can be difficult. Well after several deliberations and illustrations with the “Instigator” as Oto refers to himself. He truly mastered the logo that has caused a stir with my peers. The first time I got the ‘optional draft designs’ I belted out in a ‘WHAAAAAAAAT ’ and proceeded to scream. This logo encapsulates my being, soul, spirit, heart, and mind. This truly is an iconic piece and even Shaka Zulu would be proud. Bayede!!!
Thuli Zulu (CREA8 International)
We were drawn to Oto’s work after seeing one of the designs of another company. We contacted him with our brief. We were impressed by how well Oto understood our brief and responded to feedback so promptly and accurately. We also really appreciated being presented with multiple options which allowed us to work collaboratively and generate some new ideas that we hadn’t considered ourselves. His work represented us, professionals with excellence…
