who is caracarina?

A collection of talent, hard work and a whole lot of fun.

Whether you need design for print or for web, whatever the requirements are, we can help you. We have many years of experience in the arenas of marketing, advertising and branding and understand the work of making your product look good. For print, we do the full range – from billboards to brochures to labels to flyers to magazine ads. For electronic media, we do professional, mobile-friendly web sites, electronic newsletters and the full spectrum of images for social media and ad word campaigns.

On the arty side of things, we do live, on-site caricature sessions, amazing portraits of people and animals, book illustration and story boards.

All projects are handled with impeccable administration in terms of keeping meticulous time sheets and precise quoting and invoicing.
