Chikaboo Designs manages creative and technical solutions for businesses all over the world. I have worked primarily with individuals and small-scale organisations on a wide variety of projects where I take part in all stages of the process and offer my skills and expertise wherever necessary.

I am more interested in who I am working for, than what I do. As a result my skills have expanded over the years; so far my services include:

  • Graphic design
  • Illustration
  • Web design
  • Marketing advice & implementation
  • Technical support
  • Copywriting
  • Training and Workshops

I bring a lot of passion to my work. I am self-motivated, enthusiastic and quick to learn new skills so if you don’t see what you’re looking for, don’t be discouraged.

My working relationships have been flexible, friendly and personal. This is the way I think is most enjoyable to work. These relationships have also often taken place entirely over Skype so if you happen to be on the other side of the world, don’t worry!

So if you need support for your business, a project or initiative contact me. I’m always up for new challenges and opportunities.

I’m also a practicing artist

Some of the work you will find in my portfolio is my own art practice. I am a visual artist who likes to play music. The two mediums recently came together in the form of animations. I create for the joy of it and because self-expression keeps me sane and fulfilled. My work has taken me to spaces, people and experiences that have changed my life.

I am interested in communicating my most intimate personal and political experiences through art. I strongly believe that it is through sharing our inner dialogues and conflicts, that we can feel less alone and more fully enjoy the human experience. My focus has so far been on illustrative work about my experience as a woman, and as a person of colour but I hope to explore more philosophical questions and further my practice in spoken word, music and hand-drawn animation. I have developed a project proposal with this in mind.

So please also get in touch if you’re interested in this side of me. Maybe we can collaborate?

I think creativity and the creative process are powerful tools for individual empowerment and social change so I am particularly interested in working with community art projects and spaces.
