Riaan is a Graphic Designer and Visual Artist. Passionate about ideas, Riaan found a niche for himself in the publishing industry, working as an independent freelance creative with publishers in South Africa and the United Kingdom.

He is currently busy designing a book cover for a fiction title by Penguin Random House South Africa while doing edits on his UK client’s covers and just completed the cover for HSRC’s most important book of the year: The Informal Sector.

As Visual Artist, Riaan works on a personal project and body of art titled Visibility, which deals with his perceived conflict between individuation and culture. The body of art includes sketches, lithographs and etches.
