Durban-based Studio Warburton, the brainchild of husband-and-wife illustration and design duo Chantelle and Hylton Warburton, creates colourful works for both local and international clients.

Priding themselves on being innovative visual communicators, Chantelle and Hylton focus on designing brands, experiences and detailed illustrations that connect with people through creativity. Their work, which is often vivid, playful and emotive, focuses on brand development and identity design, illustration, packaging, editorial design, environmental design and copywriting.
