Design is the silent ambassador of your brand ~ Paul Rand


Colin Stephenson runs a full-service design and photography consultancy based in the Western Cape South Africa. We specialise in logos, branding, corporate identities, packaging, annual reports, point-of-sale, signage and web design. We are passionate about branding and we love what we do.


Your branding is the fundamental framework of your business and is of paramount importance
to the success of your company and its corporate identity.


It is important to build a brand that encompasses and typifies your company’s traditions and brand values, yet with exciting potential for development and growth. While your branding image needs to be solidly established in the present, it also needs to look to the future and, through forward thinking, predict and accommodate the needs of an ever-changing community. Your corporate identity needs a vision in order to establish a respected and known presence within your given business sector.

Colin Stephenson Design prides itself in developing creatively unique brands and logos that explore new territory and meet your company criteria by communicating your values to your target audience. Through our structured design processes we have developed leading brands and corporate identities for clients all over South Africa and internationally from our Garden Route based graphic design studio.

We have established means of communication and briefing in place and have over the years established a loyal client base as far afield as, United Kingdom, Australia, Zanzibar, Germany and Qatar to name a few international locations.

Branding can never be seen as a project with a start and an end. It is an incredibly important and never-ending process through which a succinct, long-lasting impression of your business, product or service is created in the minds of your clients.

Branding is on-going – it takes place every time your clients interact with your brand. It is an invisible dialogue that you have control over only if you are aware of the visual message and image that you are portraying.

Colin Stephenson Design as a specialist branding agency takes the time to get to know your company – to establish exactly what your goals and dreams are as a brand. We then forge your corporate identity with vision and achieve market excellence by combining great ideas with visual creativity and unique flair.

Through excellence in design, illustration, and conceptual processes we create the genetics of your brand and build onto it as your company grows and your visions, business objectives and corporate identity evolve.
