ALL PRODUCT INITIATIVES START WITH A DREAM. A VISION FROM WHERE IT GROWS, TAKE SHAPE AND DEMANDS A PHYSICAL PRESENCE. THIS IS WHERE I COME IN. MY NAME IS UNA, THANK YOU FOR VISITING MY SITE. COLLAPSE ARTICLE

 

To run your own business or project is a humbling experience. It's not easy to start something from scratch with nothing but your own drive and a mad conviction that somehow your product, service or talent deserves to be purchased or utilised. I know...

My role is to provide your company with an image and a voice that communicates with your target market in a language that will appeal to them and generate sales. A product or company needs to be flexible, re-invent and constantly adopt in an ever-changing world.

I am a qualified Fine Artist (Painting and Sculpture) from the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. I furthered my studies at the AAA School of Advertising in DTP (Digital Desktop Publishing) and just recently obtained my professional diploma in Digital Marketing from the DMI in London.

My skill set ranges from traditional graphic design to digital marketing, web site design, packaging (my pet love) and lastly but not the least: Content development and copy writing.

I have worked in the publishing industry, ad agencies in Cape Town (South Africa), the corporate sector and speak branding fluently. I am based in Cape Town, but have done work for clients in Ireland, France and Germany and can assist you wherever you are.

I have been creating since 1997 and Cocktail Brand Design is 11 years old. I am street wise rather than text book driven. I believe in gut feel combined with data and research. I don't think small and approach most projects with the respect it deserves and the potential to grow. In essence, I will try and find the right "cocktail" for your branding requirements, be it online or offline - we'll make it work - together.
