About

My name is Nicki Ford and I am a freelance Graphic Designer working in Cape Town, South Africa. I’ve been freelancing in a little town, just north of Cape Town, called Malmesbury, from 2007 to 2020.

I have over 20 years of experience and have previously worked in London and Manchester and will be returning to the UK in 2021. I would be happy to help you with a new logo or complete corporate identity – including business cards, letterheads, brochures, flyers, posters, booklets, newsletters, social media, banners and vehicle signage as well as package design.

I pride myself on professional service and have clients like Swartland Municipality, Swartland Tourism, Swartland Wine & Olive Route, West Coast District Municipality, Breedekloof Wine Valley and Darling Cellars. Not to mention the excellent local businesses of Janno Cafe Restaurant & Bar in Malmesbury, Wildehurst Wines in Koringberg and Still Pure Essential Oils in Riebeek Kasteel.

I’ve recently worked with many event planning companies on annual events including:

  • Western Cape and Limpopo Buite Expos and the Land Cruiser Festival, which I’ve been working on for Trio Events since 2015,
  • Solo Studios, which is a full weekend of art experiences in the Riebeek Valley, held in August, which I worked on since its inception in 2016 to the 2019 event,
  • Riebeek Valley Olive Festival, which usually takes place in May and I worked on in 2019 and the build up to 2020 before it was then postponed indefinitely due to Covid-19.

My event work has included various print materials such as logos, flyers, magazine and newspaper ads, posters, programs, maps, booklets, tickets, lanyards, etc. and various posts advertising all aspects of the events on social media.

I communicate with clients solely by email and on WhatsApp or Google Meet and using Dropbox or We Transfer for proofs and artwork. With technology today I am able to complete your design project wherever you may be.

Please get in touch if I can be of service!
