Some background information about DW

Myself with my lovely wife and beautiful baby girl

De Waal Immelman

Graphic Designer for over 20 years

I have always been interested in both computers as well as beautiful visuals. As a result, in 1999, I enrolled in a BA Multimedia course at the University of Pretoria, South Africa. After learning about the more technical aspects of information science and information design, I decided that (a) Java coding wasn't for me, and (b) I would rather pursue visual creativity. This decision lead me to the Open Window School of Visual Communication, where I completed a 4-year degree in Visual Communication and also began designing material for local bands and so on.

Since then I have completed a wide range of freelance projects and I have done many interesting and fulfilling creative projects for various clients and along with different collaborators. I have worked with startup business owners and creative agencies. I am a people's person and I love helping clients communicate with their target audience.

In 2010 my wife and I moved to Taipei, Taiwan where I've been teaching English and Art, designing web and printed material, and making pots in a ceramic studio on Yangming mountain.

I am always keen to hear from prospective clients and to help with information, quotes or advice. Please feel free to contact me if you are in need of any of these.
