My oh my. There’s enough talent between these two illustrators to start their own studio, which is exactly what they did, a whole month ago. The ink hadn’t even dried on their business cards when the folks from Studio Muti chatted to us.

(Yes, I said folks. Okay I admit I watch Dr Oz, but this means I know all about the dangers of belly fat)


SO FAR SO GOOD

Studio Muti is Clinton Campbell and Miné Jonker.

We spent four valuable, fun-filled years with Illustration pioneers Am I Collective, and formed part of the team working together to create world class illustration.  In August this year we waved goodbye to our friends and started our own company.  Together we  provide illustration, typography and design for the ad industry both locally and abroad, whilst also making time for our own projects, collaborations and exhibitions.

We come from very different backgrounds: Clint studied Graphic Design at Stellenbosch University and specializes in design and typography. Miné comes from a Fine Arts background and did a Multimedia course at The Open Window in Pretoria. She focusses on digital painting, and photoshop work. This diversity helps us as we can tackle pretty much anything, and it’s been fun combining these different disciplines.

We’re meeting a lot of people through promoting our work and it’s great to open the doors to new collaborations and partnerships.  At the moment we’re working on some exciting projects: a T-shirt design, a street art exhibition, a custom toy and the cover of a creative publication – so it’s going to be a very fun-filled month. We’re scouting for a studio space where we can create an environment for a whole bunch of freelance artists and designers to work together, collaborate and inspire each other when needed, while still being independent.  In the meantime we’re sharing an office with friends who have the most amazing view of Table Mountain from their balcony, which makes it hard to work.

Who inspires us? That’s tough, but we love the work of James Jean, Sam Weber, Jillian Tamaki, Jonathan Calugi, Alex Trochut, Jon Contino, Jessica Hische… the list goes on!
