Wiehan de Jager


I am Wiehan de Jager, a senior visual communication designer specialising in producing communicative media elements to clients from diverse industries to promote their businesses and grow their brand value and awareness.

With nearly 15 years of hands-on experience, I am well recognised for functional and result-focussed graphic design solutions, with strong conceptual and creative illustration skills, and impactful brand identity generation and development. I am a print, paper, typography and packaging fanatic, a communication design specialist, teacher and consultant.

Working from my studio based in the charming town of Riebeek Kasteel, a short drive from Cape Town, South Africa, I manage local clients as well as international corporates based in countries such as the UK, the United States, Australia and Germany. Here, I also spend a lot of my time drawing, painting and creating traditional and digital media artwork and art prints that explore various conceptual ideas and results to express my artistic and personal impressions. And of course, lots of dancing in the studio with my wife and little girl.

I am currently also lecturing part-time in Communication Design and Illustration at the Cape Town Creative Academy.

Contact me if you are in the need of the following services:

  • Brand identity generation and custodianship
  • Creative visual communication design
  • Traditional, digital and mixed-media illustration
  • Broad spectrum of printed media
  • Lecturing and consulting

My overall experience with Dialogue8 Creative Communication was very good. Wiehan is a pleasure to work with. What really stood out to me was the ease of communicating with Wiehan and that he always kept me in the loop about my project. I felt that my project was in very safe hands!

Wiehan has proved to be a wonderful outsourced addition to our design team. He’s fast, efficient, offers great designs and is in general just a really good guy. We’ve thrown ridiculous deadlines at him, and he’s hit them every time. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Wiehan and his design skills to anyone in need of fast turnarounds and beautiful, functional design.
