A light-hearted, enthusiastic guy with a dash of humorous sarcasm
Thank God a bug never flew in
In a nutshell

Hi, I’m Jake – an experienced Graphic Designer, Illustrator and Letterer from Cape Town based in Bristol, UK. I specialise in creating bold, fun and modern brand identities, original illustrations and custom lettering for both print and digital, often with a touch of texture and a hand-made feel.

Since 2006, I’ve enjoyed working with many well-known creative agencies and brands all over the world (mostly London) across different industries and projects, continuously building a diverse range of skills and perspectives.

Driven by adventure, I approach each project with enthusiasm and humour, aiming to create work which is fun, authentic, and resonates with your audience.

When away from the desk I enjoy the wrath of nature through mountain running, cycling and occasionally climbing rocks.

Have a project in mind?

Side projects

Paper Trails is an online app my brother Adam and I launched in 2019 and currently run. It allows people to create and purchase customised prints of their outdoor activities (running, cycling, hiking, etc.), either by connecting Strava or uploading a GPX file. It's been received very well by the outdoor community.

About the site

I patiently built this site using CSS/HTML because my brother Adam's always booked up. Fonts used are Apercu by Colophon.

Thanks for stopping by! 👋
