Sethata Seremane (Square Around Creative Group)
We had been looking for someone who could turn our sometimes crazy ideas into beautiful illustrations and after searching the web for a freelance illustrator we were lucky enough to get in touch with Antoinette from Woel Design. From the first small project we have done together I have been really happy with the way that she has constantly communicated and there has never been a time where I have felt like I didn’t know what was happening. As we grow our small business I am confident that we have found a strategic partner concerning anything to do with illustrations.
Louise Visser (Design of Blokhuis Deli Logo)
Antoinette designed a logo for us to use with the opening of a deli.
What a great pleasure it was being on the receiving end of this marvellous result and benefiting from her wonderful talents. She was very punctual and reliable and therefore we felt very safe and in good hands throughout the entire process. Her patience and good people skills enables her to understand her clients’ needs very quickly and made what seemed for us like a complicated task, easy and uncomplicated. Antoinette is sensitive to your likes and dislikes of examples and met every deadline with great care. She coped well with changes made on the last minute and liasing with the printing company. What impressed us especially was her ‘follow through’ service and help with technical questions after her work was actually done. We highly recommend her professional work.
Louise Todd (Design of DSG Magazine)
I can highly recommend working with Woel Design. After using Woel Design for the design of a school magazine, I am confident in Antoinette’s ability to ensure a good quality final product. Her work is creative, but tailored to suit the needs of the project. She is particularly knowledgeable about the printing process, and is familiar with technicalities that the layperson does not understand. Her sense of aesthetics is invaluable and she is always willing to offer advice based on her significant experience. She is an absolute pleasure to work with.
Sasha Scholtz (Creating Melville Coat of arms from the original design)
The work that Antoinette Pienaar did on creating a three dimensional representation of our family crest was nothing short of amazing. The time she spent with me conceptualising the final piece, understanding the dynamics within the family, the significance of the different symbols within the family crest all contributed to the outcome being an enormous success. She was prepared to liaise with myself and the recipient of the art work, in this case my brother, patiently and with the intent on really getting to grips of the essence of what was required with this particular brief. She dealt with each component with her own creativity, bringing fresh life to a traditional and static image of our family crest. Her attention to detail is something that really stands out for me. Hours and hours of painstaking layering and cut outs resulted in a very special and lasting work of art which will be treasured for posterity for many years and many decades to come. I would highly recommend Antoinette to anyone wishing to commission a similar, original art work of their own. You will not be disappointed!
Lisl Griffioen (Design and creating of a new custom Coat of Arms)
I recently commissioned Antoinette Pienaar of Woel Design to create an illustrative family coat of arms as a gift for my mother on her 70th birthday. I had previously seen Antoinette’s work during an exhibition at the National Arts Festival – I was intrigued with the process, impressed by her talent, and enjoyed being talked through the stories behind the ‘crests’ on display.
What a wonderful skill she has – to listen to somebody’s personal family story, and to have the ability to turn it into something beautiful and tangible… When I became the client on the receiving end of her creative genius, I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process, the way she went about it, and I was delighted with the end result. She created something beautiful and unique for my family.
Conrad van Breda (Design of Logo, CD Cover and other elements)
I would gladly recommend Antoinette Pienaar for graphic design work. She combines a good work ethic with beautifully imagined concepts and designs. Her work is of the highest quality not only because of her eye for detail, but also because she embraces the need of the client. Working with Antoinette is enjoyable and rewarding, her manner subtle and friendly yet clear and understandable. Her ideas and input was certainly a boost for my project and she has as such become my first point of call relating to anything design orientated.
