“If you think that good design is expensive, you should look at the cost of bad design.”

The three main asks every client requests at the start of a project are:

  1. Make it good
  2. Make it cheap
  3. Make it fast

Our rule is that we can only deliver on two of the three requests at once:

  1. If it’s good and cheap, it won’t be fast
  2. If it’s fast and cheap, it won’t be good*
  3. If it’s fast and good, it won’t be cheap

*and we won’t take it on

The two pizza theory

We’ve tested the pizza theory and provided Tim has had his oats and isn’t ravenous by lunch-time, our team is happily fed by two pizzas.

Of course this isn’t really about pizzas…


We're a small Cape Town based design studio born through passion and fixated on progress. We create unique brand experiences on screen and on paper.
