Urbanescance Designs is the creative platform of Tanya Potgieter. That’s me!

I am passionate about design, typography and providing my clients with the best creative solutions to their design needs. Whether it be a complex corporate identity portfolio or an invitation to a 5 year old’s birthday party, I take great pride in providing a superb level of customer service.


For almost twenty years, I’ve been helping clients of all shapes and sizes create beautiful and usable things. Having started my career in fashion design in 2002, I learned how to design for print shortly after I decided to take my career on a different path.

Then in 2007 I broadened my design skills by learning the web and to code websites through freelance work. Now as a multi-disciplinary designer, I truly enjoy creating beautiful designs for print and functional, intuitive websites.

Hobbies and other loves

Besides being a graphic designer/web developer, I am a loving wife and recently became a first time mom to our daughter, Famke.  I am also a traveler, adventure lover, avid foodie, loves champagne, petrol head and a classic car enthusiast. So when I am not working, I love travelling with my family or doing something adventurous in this wonderful area we live in – Wilderness, Garden Route South Africa. But mostly on a beautiful summers day you will find us somewhere with friends, great food, a glass of bubbly in the hand, admiring the sunset.
