Mindful expression through tasteful design, photography & storytelling.
"Let the beauty of what you love be what you do." - Rumi —
Stacey Burr, Creative
Empathetic, a magazine addict and typophile. I value the purpose behind brands and communicating this through clean, mindful, minimalist design with a quirky touch.
From photography and styling to writing impactful copy, I believe that every project is as unique as the individuals behind it and needs to be treated as such. Drawn to modern, simple style, I believe that what we choose to get rid of is more important than what we include.
I value equality, uplifting others, celebrating and encouraging creativity.
“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.”
― Hans Christian Andersen, The Fairy Tale of My Life: An Autobiography
Originally from Zimbabwe; I lived there until 2004 and I have since lived in Brisbane, Cape Town, Edinburgh and London. Making travel a priority, I left Cape Town for the U.K. in 2014.
I am ever thankful for the changes and growth that only travel and exploration can bring. Standing in awe beneath imposing mountains, in calm silence in ageing churches, cycling through delightfully unknown villages or eating my way through the never-ending variety of restaurants in London.
Having been a graphic designer for over seven years, I feel confident in both print and digital spheres. My passions lie with editorial design and typography. Having worked in house for companies full time, as well as freelancing consistently, I have valuable experience in the practical side of design- from print production to style guides and working both in teams and alone. In my spare time I enjoy drawing with charcoal, mainly people, and dabbling in watercolours.
I love to view new cities through a lens and continue to practice and finesse my personal style, seeking grace and depth in every image. Lifestyle, travel and portraits are my specialities and I love to shoot in natural light, with simple, honest styling. My inspirations include Ditte Isager, Renée Kemps and Bonnie Tsang.
