About Mogo Design Studio
Hello. I am Mike, and I trade as Mogo Design Studio. As a technical illustrator, DTP, web and graphics worker, I have a creative mind and skill set when combined with analytical thinking makes me an all-rounder able to apply my skills to a variety of output media.
Having trained as a Technical Illustrator producing 3D exploded illustrations by hand for use in service and repair manuals, the printed page has always had an allure. With the advent of Desk Top Publishing, I realised the impact it would have on publishing. I was fortunate to become one of the first few in South Africa to learn and adopt DTP as a means of bringing together both image and copy on one platform.
With the introduction of the internet and it's increased viability, publishing again faced transformation. With the skills and knowledge I had gained thus far, I naturally progressed toward tailoring information for publication on the internet, hence the need to explore web design.
While page and information layout for print and online publishing make up the bulk of my work, to facilitate production from concept to delivery, I have been able to pursue and employ other interests such as photography and copy-writing.
It is the combination of skills and experiences that I offer so you can focus on what you do best.
