hi, I'm Hester

illustrator, info designer, surf addict, sparker of creativity and a creator of awesome presentations.

My humble beginnings in marketing communication more than 13 years ago showed me the scary world of information overload and bad design.


After being subjected to many a harrowing “death-by-PowerPoint” presentation, I took a vow to battle bad presentation design and to never look back.

I work my magic in PowerPoint, Word, Keynote, Pages, Google Slides, Prezi, Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, and Procreate. View my LinkedIn Profile for my full academic and work history.

I have a secret obsession with the inner workings of information, and how the structuring, connecting, layout and presentation thereof can inspire action.


"I can't say enough good things about Hester. Her work is FANTASTIC and she is very very easy to work with."

My personal mission is to spark creativity in others using my knack for visual thinking and information design. I am a chronic doodler and drawing and illustrating is my life blood.

I draw as a form of meditation. It focuses and energises me, and by constantly creating it feeds my internal magic design combustion engine. (Follow my journey on Instagram)

Between adventures you’ll find me in a quiet seaside town in Cape Town, with sand between my toes and salt in my hair.
