“Some see a weed, some see a wish.

~ The Dandelion

Hi, my name is Cornelia, but most of my friends and family know me by Conny. I have a Bachelor Degree in Applied Design from Stellenbosch Academy of Design & Photography.

I gained work experience as a graphic designer in the advertising, insurance and tourism industry, but have always been working as a freelance graphic designer and photographer on the side.

According to Research Studios “Visual communication is soul food for the mind.” This describes it perfectly why I am working in this field and has given me the inspiration to start my little creative business: Dandelion Graphic Design & Photography.

Make a wish.

“Very creative and quick”

Very creative with the designs of our wedding invitations! I’m impressed with the ideas to improve the invitations and also with the quick service provided.


“Beautiful design + photography work”

Cornelia made many beautiful designs for me and I always come back for more. I actually only wanted to use them as an example for my app but ended up choosing them as the actual designs for the screens. Highly recommend her work! I also received the most beautiful pictures of me and my newborn daughter in her stunning and unique photography style. Thank you! I felt very comfortable throughout the time with her.
