Hi! I’m Nicki Ford and I’m a South African freelance graphic designer now based in Derby, in the UK. I have over 20 years of experience – starting out in Cape Town, Manchester and London – and for the past 15 years – in the Swartland, Western Cape, South Africa. I create logos, business cards, corporate identities, flyers, posters, brochures, annual reviews, menus, social media campaign posts, booklets, packaging, programs, maps, signage, vehicle livery and much more.
Name it and I’ve probably done it before.
In recent years I’ve worked extensively with event companies on logos, posters, booklets, flyers, maps, tickets and lanyards. These include annual events like the Western Cape and Limpopo Buite Expos, the Land Cruiser Festival, the Riebeek Valley Olive Festival and Solo Studios. I’ve also created posts and images for their various social media platforms to promote highlights within the event with specific times and dates, etc.
Swartland Wine & Olive Route and various tourism organisations across the Western Cape were also some of my regular clients and I’ve designed many brochures, pamphlets, wall and pull-up banners, and posters for them through the years.
I love package design…
and have created labels and cartons for a range of essential oil products, called Still Pure, as well as wine labels for Wildehurst Wines and beer labels for Buchanan’s Brewery, amongst others.
I’ve been vegetarian since September 2018 and I would like to work with companies and individuals who care about our planet too. My dream would be to work on vegan or vegetarian products/ventures of all kinds.
I thrive on helping small to medium enterprises to take their product, event or business to the next level.
Please take a few minutes to look through my work and get in touch if I can be of service.
