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.


Our approach to design thinking

The eLearning pod is a self-contained unit which facilitates an e-learning program that supports individuals to upskill themselves within a busy and noisy environment.

Fritz Rauch

As a designer and innovator, Fritz Rauch is able to combine traditional values and progressive creativity. He is both excessively organised and imaginatively unpredictable. He describes his aesthetic as formal with humour; first and foremost committed to raising the bar of local design. Basing his work ethic on simplicity (so as to best preserve energy), his most important design principle is efficiency. Allergic to the word trend, his aim is not to be part of a throwaway, disposable culture. Fritz instead creates products that are made to last, all the while being considerate and environmentally aware.

Since founding maker+, he has gained an impressive list of clients and products. Raised to be curious and to question the nature of things, the scope of his designs are inspired by technological innovation. He works hard and methodically, and as a result he and his team are able to proudly display a list of products that range in style, function and ideal.

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.
