About Perkolate Design Studio
Perkolate started out as an online magazine in 2016, founded by owner and graphic designer Marelise Jacobs. With her ten-year background in the publishing industry, it was the perfect platform to experiment with the digital environment. Film premieres and album launches soon gave way to social media advertising and creating promotional material.
In mid-2017 the decision was made to close the online magazine permanently and focus solely on graphic design, giving rise to Perkolate Design Studio. First situated in the beautiful offices of Montecasino’s Palazzo Towers West, the studio found a new home at Design Quarter in Fourways. Marelise has built up a solid client base from a diverse range of industries and disciplines. Her design services expanded to accommodate this variety of clients from across South Africa and beyond.
Apart from being a business owner and graphic designer, Marelise is also an accomplished illustrator, speaker and wife. She is an associate member of the Professional Speakers Association of Southern Africa and can also be found at the Red Jacket Speakers Bureau.
