Warda Essa

senior creative & UI Designer

Warda is a creative designer based in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa. Having started her career at a graphic design school, it was also here that she was introduced to computer based design. This led to over 20 years of various design projects varying from logo and CI design, to print ... text books, posters, brochures, annual reports. Without losing her love for print, she also moved into website design.

She has completed a diploma course in Interactive Media. Now with HTML and CSS knowledge under her belt as well as designing websites, she can also build them. The natural progression was to learn User Interface design and UX design. The World Wide Web is ever changing and keeping up with new technologies is crucial. She loves working in Sketch and has been working on more UI and UX projects of late.

She enjoys meeting clients expectations, aligning design with their goals and helping their organisations flourish. Also meeting those tough deadlines within scope is important. She enjoys the challenge and being a perfectionist of course helps!

She has over the years never lost the fascination of using her talents, skills and knowledge to produce creative designs that meets and exceeds clients expectations. "True creativity adds beauty to everything we see daily" – Warda Essa.
