BEHIND SASSY ADVERTISING
Way back in 2003 a very enthusiastic matricilant exchanged her holiday job as fashion sales representative for a editorial secretary at a local newspaper in Gansbaai. I found myself curious about the entire newspaper life cycle and wanted to know more about the layout planning, advert designing, printing and production processes. In the blink of an eye I had learnt these skills from their masters and hungry for a bigger challenge.
Creativity pounding through my veins I was employed as graphic designer at my first full colour design studio and senior graphic designer at a rapid growing property magazine in Hermanus in 2005.
Slowly making my way back to the mothercity I joined a heartfelt and different type of design industry at Elsje Designs in 2007, focusing on wedding invitations and celebration stationery. This journey was followed by a proposal to run a design studio in Durbanville and the publishing of many monthly publications including a property magazine, expo catalogues and agricultural magazines. My passion for publications are perpetual.
Restless to feed untamed ideas and break all boundaries, I took a great leap of faith in 2008 and set alight my own design studio… Sassy Advertising was born. (yaaay) This “Studio” was me… just me… in front of my computer, working from home with a blank address book, but a yellow pages on my lap. I quickly created my first “own” advert and sent that advert to every single email address I could find in that entire yellow pages.. page for page. Oh the joy of that first reply, the first job. My joy for every single job still remains.. this is what I was created to do- to create.
Sassy Advertising is celebrating it’s 11th business year but I believe I have been a designer all my life. I had the privilege to work in the signage industry with Design your Sign for two years and broaden my designer horizons. In 2014 I discovered the immense need for web design which I am proud to offer as one of our most valued services today. Creating stunning websites to any client from a part time plumber to a international initiative. With my love for love and the celebration thereof, I have also continued my wedding invitations and celebration stationery designs.

To create WOW designs that reflect the passion that my clients have for what they do. To ensure a delightful designing experience and be reasonably priced for any business’ branding budget.
I would love to expand my graphic design knowledge. Ultimately being able to teach hungry creatives like myself, giving the opportunity to teach them what I have learned and expanding our services. Evolving with technology and being up to date with a variety of requirements.
