Design is about solving problems

We envision the growth of companies and brands through designing the products, services, spaces and interactive experiences that sustain change.

SteHan Botha

After a decade in the branding and advertising world, SteHan decided to make the transition from two-dimensional to three-dimensional design. He joined maker+ straight after obtaining his BTech Industrial Design degree from Cape Peninsula University of Technology. SteHan has always had a keen eye for detail, while not losing sight of the bigger picture. He has an enduring passion for creating clarity through well-crafted communication, whether through the creation of striking product visuals, compelling presentations, or project proposals. For him it's all about making products and experiences more human and more enjoyable for all.
