Designer & Photographer in Western Cape – South Africa


If you are a business owner looking for a brand designer who is passionate about authentic local brands, then you’ve come to the right place. My sweet spot is the relationship between beautiful, clean design and well-lit, professional photography. There’s something magical that takes place when you combine intentional visual aesthetic and the feeling of warm, gorgeous memories captured to last a lifetime.

The photography arm of NikiDesign is called Natural Light Photography. I offer weddings, family shoots, engagements, and product photography. The story behind each photograph comes to life when components such as patterns, contrasts, rhythm, movement, balance, and unity marry together in perfect harmony. This is my goal for every shoot I do, and really, this is what I’m made to do. 

Based in Melkbosstrand along the beautiful West Coast of Cape Town, South Africa I opened my doors to the Studio in February 2015. Working as a remote Brand Designer and Lifestyle Photographer, I specialise in Brand Development, working with authentic, local brands and capturing the raw, beautiful moments in the pure enjoyment of life.

Your Brand’s Visual Identity | Purchase Logo Designs

While each logo design is crafted with creativity and care, I understand the need for individuality. You can customize and tailor any chosen design to better align with your brand’s specifics.
