I like the eclectic feel of these labels, they’re kinda like patches and picked up things. Download the vectors here.

For the past month I’ve interned at Hello World Agency in the Brand Strategy department. It’s been quite the experience and I’ve learned a lot.

I drew the above picture of the team at the Hello Purpose meeting where they discussed the company’s strategy.


Saw this sign at the Rosebank Bowling Club.


I took this photo at Capitol Theatre, a grand condemned cinema in Pretoria city. It’s one of my very favorite places and very few people know of it. This small space is the old projection room, there is still film lying on the floor and all the old switches, power boxes and meters remain. I especially enjoy the peeling paint… There are rumours of a dressing room that still has costumes, but I haven’t found it yet. I’m not superstitious but the place is certainly spooky, in that very seductive kind of way.

It’s also the very first picture I edited in Photoshop. I’ve moved on from CorelDraw and Photopaint to Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop. Although I must admit I thought after all the hype I’d enjoy Adobe more, or that it would be easier… but honestly I think it’s over-complicated and I definitely prefer Corel. But maybe I still have a lot to learn, we’ll see how it progresses. I have to hand in my Adobe exam project next month, it’s my very last exam for this year. Yay for me!


Last night I was whisked away to my very own surprise Alice Tea Party where I feasted for hours, conversed with the best and laughed like mad. I took this photo with a heavy heart when we started clearing up this morning. I’m going to sincerely miss that space.

I am too pooped to go into details at the moment but I just had to say big love to all my friends and loved ones who contributed to the weird wonderland that took my breath away last night. Most of all, to my boyfriend and his family, for their hours of work in preparation, courage, creativity and soul, I will never forget my 24th birthday, it has been an adventure I could not have dreamed up myself! Thank you for everything! Then to those band of brothers, the three De Kock’s, you guys come from very special stock, thank you for being who you are and sharing that extraordinary-ness with the world!

I will post a full photo gallery very soon, but for now it’s off to bed so this Alice can prepare for another Monday. Good night 23, you gave me OppiKoppi, 2 jobs, night classes, an internship, an electro conversion, Lark, my good friends The B(l)and, my first dubstep event, and the Gautrain. I am very grateful.




My internship started yesterday, and I love it! Will post all the details soon, busy life of an intern and all 😉 But I have time to say that Hello World is an incredible, innovative and inspiring agency. I feel incredibly blessed, and I’m learning truck loads!

I stumbled upon this quote on from an advertising legend while doing some research:

“Merely to let your imagination run riot, to dream unrelated dreams, to indulge in graphic acrobatics and verbal gymnastics is not being creative. The creative person has harnessed his imagination. He has disciplined it so that every thought, every idea, every line he draws, every light and shadow in every photograph he takes, makes more vivid, more believable, more persuasive the original theme or product advantage he has decided he must convey.”

Bill Bernbach, found on an excellent branding resource site Brand Strategy Insider.


Don’t you have the best memories of coloring? I stumbled across this dragon for coloring by Phee McFaddell.


Got the idea from IT Crowd.
