Carol - Founder & Creative Director
Hi, I am Carol and I founded Red Hot Designs
16 years ago after working for top international advertising agency for 4 years.
I will be your contact on your project and I am responsible for web design, logo design and all other graphic design work.
I am also a trained life coach and my business success is based on personal service, custom designs, high work ethic and client satisfaction.
I am passionate about sharing the knowledge I have gained in running my own design studio and will be creating a tutorial for up-and-coming graphic designers wanting to start their own businesses.
When not behind the computer I enjoy open water swimming and have recently completed a 6km/3.7 mile open water swim for charity.
I live in Knysna, a town located in the breathtaking beautiful Garden Route area in South Africa.
I believe that in order to give the most effective service possible, it’s important that I have a clear understanding of what my clients needs and requirements are.
This allows me to deliver a superb result on every project I undertake.
My aim is to ensure that my clients get what they want with the least amount of effort.
