Hi, I’m Rose. I am Capetonian – born, raised and educated. I have always been very creative, doing extra art and pottery classes at junior school, and at the ripe old age of 15 I decided I wanted to be a graphic designer. So I took up graphic design as an extra subject in high school. I then went on to study graphic design at the Cape Technikon (now known as the Cape Peninsula University of Technology) and received my diploma in 2002.

I began my career in a tiny local print shop, gaining experience in print. I then went on to work for an IT software development company where I developed my skills in web design and development. In 2005 I spent a year and a half in London working as an in-house designer for a mobile marketing company. Upon my return in 2007, I have been running my own graphic design business from home in the country and city that I love.



Business cards, letterheads, brochures, flyers, posters, billboards, invites, stickers/labels and adverts.


Digital emailers, email signatures, Google banners, and social media images.


Logos, icons, infographics, company maps and graphs.


Web banners, front-end design, HTML, CSS and WordPress development.



Crisp Design has been helping us since 2014. Roses creativity always exceeds expectations and the attention to detail is always appreciated. Her communication is clear and it is a pleasure to work with her. We have referred her on many occasions, and will continue to do so.

I love working with Crisp Design. I have been working with Rose since 2010. Although we are based in different countries, I have found her to be quick, responsive and easy to work with. Rose is full of great creative ideas and I trust her with all our design work.

With her creative flair, and intuitive understanding of what my needs were, Rose assisted me in developing my brand and a beautiful website. She was able to encapsulate who I am as a person, and what I offer perfectly. I would recommend her skills to anyone.
