Johnny Kotze is a South African-based illustrator and designer with a crush on color, composition and nature.

Johnny studied graphic design at the University of Stellenbosch and has been working as illustrator, designer and typographer since 2004. His designs have received a number of awards from national to international competitions including Cannes Lions Advertising Festival and The Loerie Awards. His client list includes, among others, Coca-Cola, Apple, Orange Mobile, Mercedes Benz, British American Tobacco, Philips, BMW, Usborne, Havaianas, Simba, Nedbank, Multichoice and from Virgin Mobile to Virgin Airlines.
