I’m Bregtje Cals, or better known as Bee. I am a freelance creative all-rounder and solo entrepreneur, based in Cape Town, South Africa. I specialize in brand & campaign strategy, design, animated video explainers, web and documentary style film and photography. I love telling stories, be it in a hand drawn graphic animated style or a more life like documentary film/photography style. I’m passionate about creating beautifully drawn graphics and make them come alive in a playful and entertaining way, helping brands, companies and organisations to get their vision or product message across to a wide public and raising awareness. With my background as psychologist and anthropologist I’m able to help you create the most clear, effective and target-group oriented message, while maintaining your core values and personality. I love working with others who are just as passionate about what they do as I am: start-ups, ‘green’ businesses, artists and non-profit organisations or any individual looking for an original way to tell their story. My approach is hands on and my communication is direct. I believe that working together creates the most exciting results. Therefore I partner up with my clients to fully understand their vision, brand and identity, get to the core of the story and bring it to a higher level with a fresh unique creation. I've worked as a freelancer for a wide variety of clients from all over the world. Including: Lush, Fairfood non profit, Toolbox Genomics, Phenobiome, SprintHive, Fosera, Marketing for Impact, Trefi Kenya, RealLife Concepts, Kula, Corion Financial Services, Syngenta and many others.
