Bread & Butter Design

Web Design and Development | Print Design | Stellenbosch

Hi, I'm a freelance digital designer, based in Stellenbosch, and I help small-medium sized businesses make an impact online

The Story.
For me it’s more than just making things look great. I believe design is the fundamental tool for helping people connect and communicate effectively. I outsource copywriting and programming to the experts so I can spend my time more effectively on design and art direction.
Prior to founding Bread & Butter Design (founded in 2009), I gained over 11 years of design experience working on clients such as M-Web, WWF, British American Tobacco, Old Mutual, Coke, Capitec and Distell. I believe that simple, functional design enables brands to tell their visual story and develop their truth to audiences that matter to them.

Using part intuition and part technical skill, I take the difficult and vulnerable process of branding, web development, and establishing a creative identity that is fresh and exciting.

  • Erich Zeelie | Clos Malverne

    Bread & Butter Design was the perfect choice when we decided to revamp our out-dated website. Through having an exceptional understanding of our specific needs and objectives they created a beautiful website that is functional; that can be maintained in-house and that looks absolutely stunning visually. We will highly recommend their services for both the quality of their work and their professionalism throughout the project.

  • Cobus Kok | MAM Candidate at Yale School of Management & Co-founder of Limbik

    I have worked with Henriette on many projects over the years. She is a talented and versatile creative, seamlessly switching hats between that of designer, art director, photographer, web developer or copywriter. A very rare find indeed!

  • Jeanine R Head of Translations / Project Manager Global Yield at Digital Outsource Services (Pty) Ltd

    Henriette is a passionate, talented designer who is completely comfortable with the entire process from client liaison, to conceptualisation, to completed product. She is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her for her creativity, energy and enthusiasm.

  • Carla van der Merwe - De Morgenzon

    Henriette is always very timeous with our website updates and willing to go the extra mile for those that need a quick turnaround.

  • Elsa Theron - Similan Properties

    Henriette is not only highly professional and a great designer, but very much a Jack of All Trades. She therefore ended up being responsible for way more than our website and is doing this at affordable rates too. I believe this is possible, because we don’t waste hours in meetings, but use tools like skype to share ideas and get the job done.


Intuitive, compelling, conversion-focused design doesn’t just magically happen. Once our strategy is solid, we work hard to design beautiful, highly engaging experiences focused on creating lasting impressions and building brands.
