He's quick, good and gets it done right. He won't tell you this, but he has an army of clones waiting in the other room.

-Casper Franken


Talented guy. Small hands.

-Gayle Thompson/Flame Thrower


Jacques has a "solid thought provoking aesthetic"

-MJ Turpin


Here you'll find none of the "ordinary" sausage-machine-waiting-in-line service! The attention to detail and comprehension of what I wanted was top notch!

-Madelie van Niekerk


Jacques is a cool designer that listens to your ideas and turns them into something extra special.

My name is Jacques Kleynhans. I was born and raised in Harrismith, South Africa. I used to be a badass chess player, I'm not anymore. I used to do a lot of things that I don't anymore. I studied at The Open Window School of Visual Communication. I majored in a bunch of things. I'm pretty good at drawing stuff, and animating stuff and designing stuff... I guess you might say I can do a bunch of stuff. I really like what I do, so if you're so inclined - gimme a call - and I can do a bunch of stuff for you.
