Who is HeadZone Graphic Design?

This graphic design agency was founded by Charlene in April 2000. She has vast experience in DTP, video animation, special effects, presentations, website design and development, coupled with built in SEO (Search engine optimization) and has been a graphic designer since 1996...

Charlene is a one-woman business and for this reason she only produces her masterpieces for a select few. This is because she refuses to mass produce poor quality or commonly used themes - preferring to dedicate her time and creative energy to deliver a unique product that works and produces positive results for each unique client.

She does have a part time assistant but he prefers to remain anonymous. He proof reads copy, writes copy and does some design and layout and a lot of dog's body work like deliver boxes of brochures to clients, outdoor banners, signage or CD,s containing presentations, - he even delivered a giant football to the local municipality for the 2010 soccer world cup (Knysna hosted two teams - France and Denmark).

She works very hard but she lives and works in a forest in one of the most beautiful towns in the world, so she does enjoy her free time - she has lots of animals - two parrots, two dogs (a Jack Russell and a Crested Chinese Hairless Dog), two wild doves, two wild Loeries and over 100 tame fish including two eels (Kodac and FireFox).


Why the name "HeadZone"?

Besides being a pretty cool name, it is also geographically based. The town of Knysna surrounds a large inland Estuary which is fed by the fresh water from the Knysna River, and the salt water from the Indian Ocean. Where the ocean enters the estuary, there are two sandstone cliffs, known as the Knysna Heads.

In the view photo above (facing South), you will see the estuary (or lagoon as it is more commonly known) in the foreground, and the Eastern and Western Heads in the distance. We're in the "Head Zone!" ;)
