2015 Calendar

I’m so stoked to finally be able to show you my 2015 Calendar!!!
I’ve been wanting to make my own printed Mocho Loco calendar for about 3 years now but for one reason or another, never got around to finish the design and actually getting them printed…. But at the beginning of this year, I made a commitment that I wouldn’t let another one go by without making my own calendar. So yeah, here is my limited edition 2015 Calendar!

I tried different mediums, layouts and colours (there are endless possibilities with calendars) but finally decided on doing this hanging banner calendar hand-screenprinted on 100% cotton fabric and packed in a craft paper tube.
I have mine already up on my studio and some wrapped for Christmas presents. If you would like to have your own or give as a gift to a friend, please, please contact me or head to Fabricate or KinShop in Cape Town.

Recent Work: The Ice Cream Guys

Those that know me well, will know that in my world: design + ice cream equals paradise.
Yes, I’m not only a big chocolate fun but also loooove ice cream. So when I was approached to design the branding and packaging for a local ice cream brand…. well, you can imagine my happiness!

In between many tastings, I designed the logo, communication material and packaging for The Ice Cream Guys.
The Ice Cream Guys is all about about real Italian gelato, promoting a total natural lifestyle and supporting the practices of locally produced and sustainable farming. All their ice cream is homemade with organic milk, it doesn’t contain hydrigenated vegetable fats, genetically modified organisms (GMO) or sythetic colourings. Basically it’s yummy and super healthy!
For their brand they envisioned a fresh, clean and contemporary look with some playful details. When I received the feedback from the presentation with my first proposed view for the brand,  I knew I was on the right track! So here are the final design elements. I’m currently working on their website (here’s a little preview) but will show you the completed site very soon.
Oh, and of course… Here are some pics of one of their stalls at the Earthfair market in Tokai. This market is open on Saturdays from 9am to 2pm and Wednesdays from 3pm to 8h30pm. So if you have some ice cream cravings, you know where to head!
