  • It’s OK Not To Give A F-ck

    This months blog post comes in the form of a diagram, a single quote, and a “Thanks” to Craig Rodney for opening my eyes to how little of a f*ck I was giving to myself, and the damage that was doing:   “Because when we give too many f*cks, when we choose to give a…

  • Inktober, Baby!

    I’ve finally (after a bit of a false start) decided to give Inktober a go. For a while I’ve been beating myself up a bit about not giving myself enough time to just enjoy drawing further than the work that I do – and the whole point its to develop positive drawing habits, so why not?…

  • Kindness in Business

    Why does being a businesswoman or a boss govern the level of kindness we’re “professionally” permitted to give to those we work with? One can’t be blind to the fact that all people with whom we interact have lives, and sometimes those lives go through pretty shitty patches. Being there for a friend or even…

  • A Day In the Life of an Honest, People Pleasing, 26 Year Old Workaholic

    6:00am – Wake up. No – Snooze. 6:20am – Wake up. NOW. 6:30 – Shower 6:57am – BLEGH. Boo you, cold weather. 7:00am – Put a face on (AKA make up). 7:19am – Feed the rat babies, make sure they have water and leave for the office. 7:33am – Turn on your computer, and let…

  • This Ain’t Lord of the Flies

    As impossible as it may seem (my employees might say), I still get a fright every month when I’m asked about what content I’ve planned to blog for the month. If I share any advice on the matter, it would be: Don’t let your employees sense your fear, this is an area in which they…

  • Hello Paisa

    Well, Hello There, Paisa

    A short while ago, I worked hand in hand with my favourite people over at 10th Street Media on an illustration and animation of a short explainer video for Hello Paisa. Exploring an illustration style different to what You&Me is generally contacted for was quite exciting. It sounds weird, I know, but I genuinely enjoyed the…

  • It’s The Simple Things

    I thought I’d finally found a moment to elaborate a bit more on one of the projects that I’ve had the most fun working on to date – and then I realised (after sitting in front of my computer for half an hour with a single sentence to show for it) that I actually didn’t…

  • Living The Dream

    This year, although we’ve just passed the halfway mark, has been the biggest adventure. I’ve made some massive changes in my life, which have fundamentally changed the way in which I do and think about everything. Yes, “everything” is a hugely bold word to use – but it’s the only one that works. As an…

  • Whistle While You Work

    A short while ago we were approached with the task of redesigning the menu for Croft&Co, a popular coffee shop situated in Parkview, Johannesburg. Now, you would have seen us share a few blog posts on work done for this particular client, but this project was a whole new ball game. As a designer, you’re…
