Say Hello

to the team

Our multidisciplinary team work remotely all around the world. We are not only proud of the work we produce but also the team we work with. We drink coffee together, laugh together, brainstorm like absolute badasses and most of all, shine light on your brand. 

Former Digital Nomad, now based in Amsterdam (due, in no small part, to a particularly mischievous Cocker Spaniel called Honey) Sol has over a decade spent in Digital Marketing. With a wealth of international experience, she broke away on her own to build her own business, focused on the idea of meaning-driven, value-creating marketing. Sol looks better in a neck scarf than literally anybody else.

Another entrepreneur on our team, Kimmy is our in-house design wizard - based in sunny Durban. Her sleek, minimal design style says everything with the understated cool you’d expect from a mellow beach babe, and there’s no brief she can’t nail with a trendy flair. Our resident sportsman, Kim’s the most easygoing person you’ll ever meet - until you challenge her to a relay, that is.

A Pretoria based crafter of sentences with a penchant for humour, analogy, topical relevance and comfortable chairs, she’d like you to call her Murf (everyone on the team does.) Murf can spin a yarn out of almost anything, which usually makes team meetings slightly longer than they ought to be, but makes up for it with serviceable puns and an endless supply of memes. She has far too many tattoos for how much Dungeons & Dragons she plays.
