Letterpressing and watercolour illustration
Hello! I am Ruschka, a freelance designer and illustrator based in the beautiful city of Cape Town.
My experience in the industry stretches over 8 years in both commercial and commissioned fields of work in design and illustration.
I am regularly commissioned for my unique illustration style which includes a mixture of watercolours as well as ink and pen on a paper medium.
This, combined with my knowledge and strength as graphic designer has given me the opportunity to create everything from corporate identities to commissioned portraits, chocolate bar wrappers, website interfaces and even a clothing range.
My personal work deals with the human struggle around spirituality and issues of faith as well as the contrast of darkness against beauty and fragility.

Ruschka has been an absolute pleasure to work with, dedication and a fantastic attitude, producing top notch design work. I will always highly recommend Ruschka.
Approaching Ruschka with our design needs was an obvious choice - she's talented, respects what you are looking for, and produces work that is original and beautiful while also offering plenty of variety. We're just busy thinking up more reasons for how we could work together again!
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. Ruschka is such a star that I sometimes want to keep her as my very own secret because if everyone knew how great she was, she would be inundated!
Love love love working with Ruschka! She is amazing in how she grasps our concepts and comes up with exactly what we're looking for in designs. Her ideas are fresh, original and stunning! Nothing is ever a mission, especially last minute changes or add ons... I always look forward to working with Ruschka on new designs.
Having Ruschka design our wedding stationary has been such a breeze. She completely understood our vision and brought it to life. Her style and talent just blows me away and it suited us so perfectly; she really made it so unique to us as a couple. She has been great in guiding us in the whole process and asking the right questions. The programs she designed brought me to tears when I saw it. Thank you Ru for being such a blessing and so easy and great to work with!
