I believe design is people centered, and is a powerful tool to provide value and beauty to the world around us.

My goal is provide high quality design and illustration work for small to large business’s and advertising agencies all over the world, and to enjoy the journey along the way.

My hunger for trying new things over the last decade has made me a versatile designer with a vast portfolio displaying various styles , approaches and methodology. I’m always pushing myself to make work that excites and inspires me. I am extremely passionate about what I do.

I’ve been extremely privileged to work with many great clients, companies & advertising agencies all over the world including The Wall Street Journal, Mcdonald’s, Amazon.com, Disney,  Jack Daniel’s, GQ Magazine, Entertainment Weekly magazine, Ogilvy, Leo Burnett, Saatchi & Saatchi and many others.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”custom” accent_color=”#f1f1f1″ css=”.vc_custom_1483799599651{margin-top: 80px !important;margin-bottom: 80px !important;}”][kraft_heading heading=”Areas of focus” element_tag=”h2″ font_size=”font-size-28″ font_weight=”500″][vc_column_text font_size=”para-18″ font_weight=”400″]Custom lettering & Typography, Type Design, Typeface development, Illustration, Etching, Engraving, Line art, Packaging, Logo design, Logotype refresh, Brand packages, Creative consulting, Editorial illustrations, Speaking engagements, Workshops, Guest blog posts, and Social brand partnerships.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”custom” accent_color=”#f1f1f1″ css=”.vc_custom_1483799599651{margin-top: 80px !important;margin-bottom: 80px !important;}”][kraft_heading heading=”Education / Experience” element_tag=”h2″ font_size=”font-size-28″ font_weight=”500″][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][kraft_list_block list_block_data=”%5B%7B%22heading%22%3A%22Stellenbosch%20Academy%20Of%20Design%20And%20Photography%202004%20-%202007%22%2C%22desc%22%3A%22I%20am%20a%20BA%20graduate%20in%20applied%20design%20at%20the%20Stellenbosch%20Academy%20Of%20Design%20And%20Photography%20in%20South%20Africa.%5Cn%22%7D%2C%7B%22heading%22%3A%22Self-employed%202009%20-%22%2C%22desc%22%3A%22I%20starting%20working%20as%20a%20freelance%20designer%20from%202009%20onwards%2C%20and%20have%20never%20looked%20back.%22%7D%5D”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_separator color=”custom” accent_color=”#f1f1f1″ css=”.vc_custom_1483800399403{margin-top: 60px !important;margin-bottom: 80px !important;}”][kraft_heading heading=”Select Client List” element_tag=”h2″ font_size=”font-size-28″ font_weight=”500″][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″ offset=”vc_col-xs-6″][kraft_list][/kraft_list][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″ offset=”vc_col-md-3 vc_col-xs-6″][kraft_list][/kraft_list][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″ offset=”vc_col-md-3 vc_col-xs-6″][kraft_list][/kraft_list][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″ offset=”vc_col-md-3 vc_col-xs-6″][kraft_list][/kraft_list][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_separator color=”custom” accent_color=”#f1f1f1″ css=”.vc_custom_1483800300091{margin-top: 65px !important;margin-bottom: 80px !important;}”][kraft_heading heading=”Availability” element_tag=”h2″ font_size=”font-size-28″ font_weight=”500″][kraft_cta cta_text=”I’m always interested in new and exciting projects,” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.lukeritchie.co.za%2Fcontact%2F|title:Let’s%20chat!||”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]
