ABOUT ME


 
HELLO! I'M MERIEKE, AND I'M A GRAPHIC DESIGNER BASED IN PRETORIA EAST.

Most days you can find me cozied up in my sunny study with a cat in my lap and tea that could use 30 seconds in the microwave. 

After completing my BA in Communication and PGCE in Education at university, I went on a few different career adventures before deciding to start my own business. So I changed my day job from teacher to stationery/graphic designer. Pretoria, South Africa is the place I call home and my passion is creating beautiful things. So I thought to bring it together and share the creative adventures that are yet to come. Since starting my business in January 2018 I have learned a lot about the wedding industry and I love every second of it. Recently I added artistic designs to my repertoire, and the amount of joy it brings me to create beautiful art for clients, can't be explained.

I love using this gift that God gave me and serving people by capturing their favourite memories or ideas with design. I'm passionate about creating unique ways to tell your story whether that be with pretty stationery, a custom logo or photo book that make people say "oh, that's so YOU." That, my friends, is why I still believe in the power of paper! I'm also a firm believer to live life to the fullest and create beauty while your at it.
