How It All Started...

"Never stop believing, & keep pushing forward!"

The company was founded by Creative Director Matthew Marais in 2007.

Matthew studied both Fine Art and Graphic Design in South Africa in the late 90's, after which he spent 3 years working and traveling abroad and returned to SA in 2002 to pursue his design ambitions.

Matthew has also spent the past 15 years teaching graphic and web design ('in his spare time'), at various tertiary institutions including Damelin East London, CCS IT and ELMI College where he is still a regular lecturer.
