I am Ruschka. A freelance graphic designer, illustrator and artist based in Cape Town, South Africa.
I create logos and identities for new businesses and grow the visual language of existing brands. What sets me apart is that I am a self taught artist and illustrator, two practices that inform my design aesthetic and allows me to create unique work .
When I am not busy with client work I paint and make digital artwork. My happy place is where I get to explore color, themes, brush strokes and moods.
In everything I do I value authenticity and I desire to build community and foster connection. I add emotional depth and strong intuition to every project I take on.
With over 12 years of experience, I confidently and professionally navigate the design process, delivering work that is of a high standard. I would describe my design aesthetic as emotive, gentle and feminine.
Ruschka is able to intuitively and beautifully interpret the subtleties of the KARU brand through her design work. Beyond answering to brief, her initiative and ideas bring a fresh perspective to the creative process.
Ruschka has played a pivotal role in refining the visual language of PICHULIK. She is a great listener, and through this is able to intuit and distill the true purpose and meaning of the brand and materialising it within its visual language. Her approach is sensitive and cohesive, of which she delivers with great professionalism and accuracy. It is an absolute pleasure to have Ruschka as an extended part of the PICHULIK DNA.
Ruschka has provided an invaluable design service to Honest Chocolate. She has a strategic and creative approach which has given us really helpful insights into our brand. She also never fails to deliver within the given time frames.
Ruschka is one of the most talented designers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is always very professional, never misses a deadline and what I love most is her ability to think outside of the proverbial box.
