Intro Segment

If you are needing someone with a solid background in creative execution without any employment strings attached, you might have found the right guy. My name is Stuart Vivier and I’m a multimedia designer: I execute things.

High quality video & 2D motion graphics, photography, graphic design for print & for digital, along with a good amount of interactive media experience such as UI/UX design and HTML understanding, I can assist with pretty much any creative brief you might have.

I can manage your communication efforts from the ground up and help build your brand with a clear plan in place with a background in strategic thinking, campaign design and a strong teamwork ethic.

My aim is not to get a full time job in your agency / business, it is to help you when you are short staffed when you need someone to get the job done. If you like having me on your speed dial and want me to stick around, we can work something out.

COMMITMENT OUTLINE

My Commitment

You will have access to my creative asset creation ability as well as all my gear. The gear I shoot with is well above the industry standard. Mixed with a strategic outlook, this can be a game changer for your brand. I will commit to working alongside you and assisting the brands needs in the areas that you stipulate.

I usually work remotely (8:00 to 17:00) as I service multiple clients and find that in today’s day and age, working from your office is rarely a necessity with high speed internet and skype calling, but I am happy to accomodate you where you need me. I manage my workload and will never take on work that I know I cannot finish to the best of my ability. Let’s chat over a coffee in your offices and we can work out what works for both of us.

Gear includes:

  • Fujifilm X-T3 (3 x batteries)

  • 35mm F2.0

  • 18-55mm F2.8

  • Macbook Pro

  • Adobe Creative Cloud

  • Entry level studio lighting

Your Commitment

  1. Setting the start and end date and sticking to those dates. Should you want any kind of extension then we can have that conversation when the time comes.

  2. I handle all my own accounting so there will be no commitment on your side to handle any tax deductions.

Availability

As it stands, I am available to begin work immediately.

A FEW OF MY FAVOURITE LOGO DESIGNS

CAMPAIGN PORTFOLIO

BEEFEATER GIN


The objective for this campaign, was to ensure that the brand stood out as much as possible in a saturated retail environment. With the launch into the South African market, the client required us to keep to their brand guidelines as well as pushing the boundaries to ensure that the objective was achieved.

Research in the retail environment shows that the use of copy heavy advertising is not conducive to attracting a shoppers attention in a retail space, there needs to be a hook to grab the consumers attention and with that in mind and the base of what we worked off, we were able came up with the direction of big and flashy visual graphics in order to grab the shoppers attention by using the brand’s already quite ‘loud’ brand identity. Then allow a sleek and well designed visual execution to draw them in and get them over the line of making a purchase.

The client also wanted to drive mixability of their product as the G&T craze was on the rise and it felt natural for the brand to stock the unit with not only the Beefeater product but with mixability options as well.

Both elements were executed myself.

SOWETO GOLD


As Soweto Gold was entering into the Kwa-Zulu Natal market, they needed to create awareness within the province. The aim was to take the essence of the brand and their very strong ‘Soweto’ sway and translate that into a local market such as Kwa-Zulu Natal (and could be applied to where ever they chose to break into.)

We chose to use their claim of “born Ekasi” which is a phrase known by those who come from the Soweto township (that translates into “born in community”) and hone in on the aspect of community.

We localised the on screen content all the way down to the store it was in and spoke directly to that COMMUNITY. We spanned this effort over 30 stores in Kwa-Zulu Natal. The unit as a whole communicated the brand in a consistent way.

All elements were executed myself.
