    • Samantha Fisher

      Head of Client Service

      With 18 years in the corporate marketing sector, Samantha has been integral in helping Colourworks define a fully integrated marketing proposition. Samantha has a passion for helping brands build their identity, and when she isn’t spearheading strategic brand experiences – she’s making sure her body and soul stay as sharp as her mind.

      Food for thought

      If I could have dinner with one person, dead or alive, it would be with Hillary Clinton.

    • Janine Kruger

      Head of Operations

      As our Head of Operations, Janine works closely with all departments, overseeing and ensuring coherent alignment with the overall company vision. She has been one of the integral driving forces behind the rise of Colourworks, and can bake a cake that would make Mary-Antoinette’s heart melt.

      The thing I love most about my job is working in a positive, energetic and creative environment!

    • Shirley McLean
    • Debbie Nortie
    • Pippa Hudson
    • Shirley Mclean

      Financial Manager

      With a knack for numerals and a flair for figures, Shirley handles the Colourworks financials with faultless proficiency. When she isn’t crunching characters, she’s probably playing Uno with her daughter or watching rugby at Newlands.

      Food for thought

      If I was marooned on a deserted island and was allowed to take one item with me, I would take my hair straightener!

    • Debbie Nortjé

      Events Manager – Cape Town

      Debbie’s exuberant energy and natural knack for coordination and planning make her an asset that the Colourworks team simply couldn’t function without. She loves making people happy, and her instinctive gift of being able to make all those around her smile and laugh equate to her being amazing at what she does.

      If I could use one word to explain myself, it would be ‘Resourceful’

      As a steadfast devotee to all things design oriented, Pippa brings a revered set of award winning skills to the Colourworks table. Her international experience, innovative approach and creative philosophy ensure that every project she’s involved in is of the highest calibre.

      The thing I love most about my job is the coffee, long chats and finding inspiration in the weirdest of places.

    • Yolandi Hoogendijk
    • Lexy Dykhouse
    • Yolandi Hoogendijk

      Traffic Manager

      Yolandi is our Traffic manager and studio coordinator. She has a passion for creating order and structure, and loves being involved in the jobs that challenge her. She makes sure that everything stays on budget, and that deadlines are never missed. She has a fervent adoration for all things small, fury and whiskered.

      Food for thought

      My favourite quote is “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

    • Lexy Dykhouse

      Project and Social Media Manager

      Lexy’s multi-talented brilliance has seen her grab the bull by the horns as she has nimbly stepped into the duel-role of Project and Social Media Manager. Her ability to adapt is invigorating, and her fresh, innovative style has sent a refreshing breeze through the Colourworks corridors.

      Food for thought

      My favourite quote is “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it is about learning to dance in the rain.”

    • Jacqueline Mills

      Project Manager

      Gregarious, centred and efficient – Jacqueline joins the Colourworks team in the very welcomed role of Project Manager. This self-professed wine connoisseur has one mission in mind – to deliver excellence and manage the delivery of exceptional creative work that exceeds our client’s expectations.

      Food for thought

      If I was marooned on a deserted island and was allowed to take one item with me, I would take my family.

    • Zena Jacobs
    • Louise Storm
    • Johan Strydom

      Senior Graphic Designer

      As our senior designer, Joe’s ability to communicate our clients’ specific wants into appealing and functional identities is truly unmatched. When Joe isn’t creatively crafting, he’s probably slapping the bass with his band.

      Food for thought

      If I was marooned on a deserted island and was allowed to take one item with me, that item would be a boat.

    • Zena Jacobs

      Production Manager

      Zena is the human embodiment of organisation. As production manager, it is her job to produce, perfect and take initiative – and no one does it better than her. When Zena isn’t making sure all her ducks are in a row, she’s probably baking or making jewellery.

      Food for thought

      If you could use one word to explain myself, that word would be ‘Perfectionist’.

    • Louise Storm

      Production Manager

      Louise is living proof of the saying ‘dynamite comes in small packages’. This Phil Collins loving neat-freak started as a junior designer at Colourworks 12 years ago, but has found her true niche in production. Louise is efficient, energetic and charismatic – and has found herself coming back to Colourworks for more.

      Food for thought

      Do I have any hobbies? I recently started trail running and I absolutely love it!

    • Georgia Veale
    • Roxzanne Pillay
    • Georgia Veale

      Events Manager

      Being the driven, grounded and dynamic person that she is, Georgia handles everything that comes her way with style and grace. With six years of experience in offering clients unique brand experiences, she has become an irreplaceable member of the Colourworks team. When Georgia isn’t creating mind-blowing events, she’s probably jogging on the Promenade.

      Food for thought

      What’s my hidden talent? I’m really good at triathlons and squash.

    • Roxzanne Pillay

      Events Coordinator

      Planning and executing with methodical precision is Roxzanne’s game. Her ambitious outlook and style of tackling challenges head-on has proven time and again that she has what it takes. Her motto is ‘’If you don’t buy the tickets, you can’t win the lottery.’

      Food for thought

      Sadly I don’t have a hidden talent, but if I could choose one, i would like to be able to breakdance.

    • Chris De Beer

      Photographer & Social Media Assistant

      With a curious mind, a free spirit and a journalism degree on her side, it’s only natural that Chris finds working on a variety of projects in different capacities ‘rad’. When she isn’t snapping shots and keeping up with latest media trends, she’s probably riding a sleek palomino.

      Food for thought

      My hidden talent? Hmmm, I’m pretty good at arm wrestling.
