About the founder​​​​​​​
Elisma du Plessis (de Villiers)
Creative & Strategy Director   |   Bachelor of Arts: Visual Communication
"My name is Elisma and I'm all the way from sunny South Africa. I help business owners develop their brand identities and collateral to establish themselves in the market. The marketplace is extremely competitive, and we live in an era where the consumer has more control than ever before. That’s why brands really need to go the extra mile to make an effective impact. 

My studies in Visual Communication has set the foundation for the methodologies I utilise. I approach branding with a sensitivity to culture and an awareness of the underlying psychological needs we all share. This allows me to develop brands that people can connect with.

Listening to what my clients care about with an open mind, allows me to offer my skills and enthusiasm to help them achieve their goals."

"Branding is much more than just a logo. We’re not just selling products and services anymore, we are selling stories, culture and brand personalities."
