Our story

How Perkolate became a Design Studio

Perkolate was founded in 2016 by Marelise Jacobs, a graphic designer and illustrator from Johannesburg, South Africa. Core to Perkolate is the ability to communicate a message clearly through professional graphic design. The message must convey essential information to ensure the success of any organization or business. From this Perkolate established a design studio, a place where creative minds can focus all their energy on design.

We love working with Perkolate Design Studio! They are really helpful and communicate each detail throughout the project, they take a vision, and the designs and graphics exceed expectations. Superb value for money and highly recommended.

Bernadette Rigney


Thank you Perkolate Design Studio! We have been extremely happy with our experience working with them. They have helped us design everything from a postcards and banners to creating a new logo. They are quick to respond and easy to communicate with (This is especially important to us since we are US based). The design ideas are fresh and unique. I can’t say enough positive things. We are so happy we found them!
