A mostly self taught digital designer with a degree in brand communication. I’ve been creating digital content from a young age out of curiosity and now it’s a lifestyle.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with some really cool brands from around the world and I create anything from websites, to the images, videos, illustrations and animations that go on them.
The websites and media I produce work across all platforms. So whether you need a website that functions on desktop and mobile, or a video to be viewed in a range of sizes – I can deliver.
Far far away, behind the mountain peaks, beyond the wildest seas, you’ll find me. A freelance thinker & creator. Name your challenge and let’s chat.

We would like to thank Sebastian for his dedication and hard work towards making our Website a success. With our utmost difficult requests, Seb has won hands down with his artwork, design and simplicity. Our Website has gone from being dull, colourless and inefficient, to a brilliant, one pager of success !! Aggressive Audio only recommends Sebastian.
– Gerhard Louw, Aggressive Audio
Seb was open to critique at all times, was found taking initiative in areas we had not considered and was above all, focused on user experience throughout our project. I would recommend Seb to anyone looking to build a thoroughly brand-orientated website and will be using him for future projects!
– Tyler Bodmann, Limelens
Seb worked with Launchsite as a designer / web designer for about two years. During the time Seb spent at Launchsite the quality that stood out the most for me was his ability to problem solve and find solutions for customers. Seb has a great eye for design and designs using current trends and colour schemes. His finished product always outshone what I had visualised in my mind. If you are looking for a hard working, responsive digital designer and wordpress guru – Seb is your guy. Feel free to contact me with any questions or for a reference.

Being a photographer, film make and having a level of knowledge in graphic and web design, I have a very clear idea of what I want in a website and it’s already laid out in my head and designed before I take it to a web developer or designer. Seb was able to take this info and lay it out exactly how it was in my imagination without too much fuss at all to create exactly what I designed in my head and on paper. To add to his good grasp of ideas, he is also happy to explore and learn new techniques, so he always manages to find a solution. There has never been a time where it has been difficult to get in touch with him and his approach has been very personal. Seb is a great find and we will no doubt evolve together. I will certainly continue working with him and wish him much luck with his journey. Thanks Seb!
