Hi. We are glad you are wanting to find out more about us.
Huisman Creative Co is a home based after hours creative studio focusing on Branding + Illustration established by Jason Huisman towards the of 2019 and based in Roodepoort, Gauteng. We are small and slowly gaining our pace, and have a big heart for building brands of all sizes both locally and nationally.
We are passionate about our craft and everything we create is driven with care and excellence in mind. Our influence can be found in a time when craftsmanship was king and simplicity with a clear message was the mainstay.
Our Goal is to inspire and connect people to brands encouraging both to see what can be, and to do it fairly and with integrity, offering a variety of design and advertising services with a strong focus around brand design, strategy, consistancy and a splash of illustration to round off.
We are driven by 5 points, both personally and as a business:
Design awesome with everything we have, trying new things and creating effective designs for our clients.
Connect with our clients as businesses and people, relationships count.
Building trust through being transparent, communicating throughout the process, discussing ideas together.
Motivating ourselves as well as our clients and social media communities through thoughtful helpful content and quotes.
Always seeking to better ourselves and improve our offerings taking time to study and learn about our field and things that would benefit our partnership.
My experience in design has spanned just over two decades, I have been lucky to have worked as a Designer/Creative Brand Manager in a few industries from events to financial and Lighting/Furniture in which I still work.
I started HCco to build brands, create new relationships, and to get back into my passion for creating logo's, illustration and pattern work.
What inspires me creatively and personally? my faith, my family, classic swiss style design, styles and design from the 30s to 80s, the works of Paul Rand, Walter Landor and Sci-fi movies.
When not designing you can find me hiking or playing basketball with my boys.
Walter Landor said it best:
"Products are made in factory but brands are made in the Mind."
This is our drive!, to understand your company and goals, your audience and create effective strategic indentity, illustraion and design around that.
Our design process below is focused around the above drive, as well as creating an opportunity for clear communication / understanding from both sides and to give structure to designing awesome.
