What I do
I'm a freelance illustrator, graphic designer and creative consultant, and I love being able to meet and work with lots of different people and learn from them too. I've spent several years working in the design industry for companies specialising in a variety of fields, from magazines to web design and social media. As a freelancer I've had the opportunity to work on an even greater variety of projects - have a look at some of them here. I also sell my own products, which at the moment are made up of stationery and art prints and illustrated graphic elements that you can buy and re-use.
I deal with corporate work for large companies as well as more creative custom work for small businesses and individuals. Whatever your project or query, get in touch and we can chat about it.
• Commissions for gifts or personal decor art pieces
• Commercial illustration
• Branding, especially for small businesses and startups
• Design for social media and blog elements
• Layout design (magazines, brochures)
• Commercial design for corporates
What you can expect from your experience with me
I'm super passionate about what I do and I care about your experience with me. My aim in any project is to make sure you get what you came to me for and are completely happy with it by the end of the process. I work very closely with my clients and keep them in the loop along every step of the way to make sure everything is in line with what you need, and this ensures an end result that you'll be happy with. If you have any other questions about the process, please don't hesitate to drop me a line!
I'm always open to working on something new, so if you have something for me that doesn't fit into the above categories but may be well suited to me, I'd love to hear from you.
If you're not familiar with the design process and need some design or illustration work done, it can be scary delving into the unknown - that's where I come in! You can drop me a mail and I'll get back to you to discuss the whole process and offer advice so that you're comfortable with it and understand what you need before you make any decisions.
Here's what past clients have said about their experience with me...
On behalf of many small business owners out there that are starting really small and need a helping hand and a guiding light, I would like to say thank you for your utmost professional approach and thorough research when it comes to logo and business card design. You helped us here at Agility, make an arduous task seem more manageable and really just kick started a world of options through your branding services and design. Thank you for being a friend when it's easy to give up and move on. I would highly recommend you to any person in need of your services for your good sense of follow up and your incredible value for money.
An extended thank you to Nadia van der Mescht, who put me in touch with you and through her consultation service got the ball rolling. What a positive experience.”
Kim McCusker, Branding for Agility studio
“Dear Fathima, thank you so much for all of your hard work. Not only are you extremely professional, organised and prompt, your work is absolutely beautiful and so creative! From the moment we first where in touch you knew exactly what we were looking for and for every piece of our stationary you truly hit the nail on the head every time! Not only were we blown away but so were our guests! Your work was beautiful and matched our theme perfectly and flowed throughout! Thank you again.”

"Since the first sight I loved your blog and sketches, etc.., you're a very talented and stylish designer and that's why I wanted you to design my business branding. You've helped me a lot to make choices, advising me and guiding me into all the branding design process.
You captured my business essence, and that's what makes the work easier and faster, even if you are an undecided person like me and you turn others crazy with lot of changes. The experience was incredibly good, you did a stunning job and I would be so proud to work with you again in the future. I am completely 100% satisfied with your work. "
Rebeca Bachero, Branding for Chocco&Becca
