illustrator & web designer // Cape Town

Independent Illustrator & Designer

We fall somewhere between an art collective, independent web/graphic designer and illustrator. Our services are geared towards working with startups, small businesses and artists. We specialise in not specialising, with a diverse portfolio of work, brought together by a shared objective.

At Lincoln Collective, we believe in the philosophy of measuring twice and cutting once. We invest heavily in planning and preparation so that we execute flawlessly, and produce work of the highest quality.

Working with Unagency, packaging designs were created with illustrations for each bottle and promotional material.

Process

1. Sharpening the Axe – Strategy

This is where I get to know who you and your audience and discover how to set you apart from your competitors. I define your key messages, plan your communication strategy and build your brand story.

3. Development – The Chop

With the preferred concept chosen I begin to develop the finer details of the design and apply it across all deliverables.Finally I deliver artwork that is ready for commercial use.

2. Cutting a Wedge – Design

With the positioning and strategy defined I move onto exploring a range of bold and contrasting creative concepts. The focus is on finding relevant, meaningful and creative ways to articulate what you want to say.

4. Launch

I manage all areas of design production and ensure the best final outcome. The project is launched into the real world and I stay in regular contact to gauge it’s success post-launch.
