It is a pleasure to recommend Blue Zebra Creative. They are very professional and produce designs that are crisp, clean and refreshingly original. I am impressed by the process that takes into consideration your exact needs and requirements, successfully translating them into design. Gary’s understanding of the broader printing environment ensures nothing is missed in translation from concept to final production. I have procured designs that have been shared with a broad international audience, serving very important processes and garnered much acclaim. I have no reservation in recommending Blue Zebra Creative for their professionalism, creative content and all round service.

Gary has designed many newspaper advertisements, prospectuses and yearbooks for us at Maru-a-Pula. His work is outstanding, with superb attention to detail. He communicates clearly and he quickly incorporates suggested changes. I recommend him highly and unreservedly.

Dr. Julius Arnegger


Gary was responsible for the graphic design of a transboundary water management plan between Angola and Namibia, and the website of the CUVECOM watercourse commission, in the framework of a development project funded by the German Development Cooperation (GIZ) and implemented by GFA Consulting Group. As the responsible project manager, I can recommend Gary as an extremely committed, knowledgeable and talented designer. He will go the extra mile and will make sure your project results are as good as it gets. Recommended 100%.

Neo Raphoto

Health & Wellness Consultant

I found working with local designers/agencies very frustrating, many failed to translate my visions into an end product… then I was introduced to Blue Zebra Creative. Wow! Gary creates branding that is totally relevant to a company’s identity. In my case he added a touch of modernism and cultural appeal, which catapulted the company’s image. He is very intuitive and implemented insight I had overlooked. His is honest and his deliverables are impeccable; super efficient, flexible and reliable. They just “get it” and this is what sets them apart from other creatives in Botswana.

Gary is really very talented at what he does. He listens well to what is required and delivers a very timely service, but much more than that, he really goes the extra mile. He genuinely cares about your brand and your company’s image and provides additional consultancy. He helps you to think more creatively and consistently about your brand in a way that shows his considerable design empathy and expertise. I can wholeheartedly recommend Blue Zebra Creative as a design resource and consultancy service and look forward to working with Gary on future projects.

One Oreeng

Marketing & Communications

I have had the pleasure of working with Gary since 2015. His talents are sterling and on this basis we have developed a fruitful professional relationship. Gary’s design standards and attention to detail are excellent. In my line of work, demanding deadlines and strenuous timelines are constant; not once has Gary failed to meet a deadline. He is extremely creative and has the ability to think through the root of the design and more importantly, he is able to interpret a company’s brand. I enjoy working with Blue Zebra Creative and it is a pleasure to recommend Blue Zebra Creative.

Ilse Hester van Bennekom-Minnema

Project Administrator / Office Manager

Gary created the brand identity for the National Spatial Plan project; the logo was important, so all stakeholders felt a sense of ownership. From the beginning we knew Gary was the right person for the job. He made the process very easy and he understood what we were looking for; every option presented had a different story. I am very pleased with the chosen logo, which is recognisable and timeless. What I liked about Gary is he came up with additional ideas that gave us something to think about. Gary exceeded our expectations and I definitely recommend Blue Zebra Creative.

Thebe Modikwa

Chief Operating Officer

All my business interactions with Gary have exceeded expectations. He is professional and his creativity and attentiveness are unmatched.

Amit Bakhirta

Chief Executive Officer

Gary remains one of the rarest artist (graphic designers) who shall precisely and very professionally transform your ideas, dreams and creation into artistic reality; with a comforting ease. Not only is he a true creative professional but a true entrepreneur at soul. My company, Anneau’s ascent shall forever be bonded to Gary and Blue Zebra not only by creation, but also through his generosity, and patience; albeit for a ‘tough’ and ‘demanding’ client like us. I personally remain confident that Gary shall accomplish wonders in Africa.

Dikeledi Msiza

Procurement Manager

My first impression of Blue Zebra Creative was their analysis, attention to detail and constructive criticism, which are amazing and well presented. Their consultation and subsequent proposal highlighted things we had overlooked in selling ourselves. We have now reviewed our approach and marketing strategy. I was impressed by their confidence; they do not compromise on creativity. Blue Zebra Creative is all about simplicity and professionalism; their work is neat and easy to understand, whilst educational and informative. I am more than happy to recommend them to any business for design or consultancy related work.

Tony Winterbottom

Sales Director – Business & Industry

Gary worked for myself and the wider sales team for over 8 years. His work was always very creative and imaginatively prepared with diligence and attention to detail. Gary was key in raising the standards and quality of both bespoke and generic bid production and supporting design work that helped complement our propositions. Gary’s services would be an ideal asset to an organisation or individual looking for imaginative design with dedication and commitment.

Justin Johnson

HR Director

Gary has always been very easy and professional to work with. Over many years he supported my department in the creative design of HR and training related material, as well as collateral associated with our internal events and employee brand. From the initial (often limited) brief, he designed and produced work that is of an incredibly high standard. The outputs have always created a ‘buzz’ at our events and have been a key part of the overall branding and theme. His input and creative flair is missed. 

Sarah Wass

Clint Relationships Manager

Gary is a very creative and inspiring designer, he worked diligently and ensured that his work reflected the profile and desires of our customers. Gary understood our business well and went the extra mile to ensure he delivered work to the highest standard. I would certainly recommend Gary for any design projects.
