Our Approach

Working hand in hand with spatial and community stakeholders, collectively, we take a holistic and sustainable design approach towards assisting the development of healthy and happy children. We believe in creating all-embracing environments and that a child conducive environment is an environment conducive for all.


We’ve taken learnings from a decade of working curiously-hands-on and distilled it into a select number of focus areas. The projects below highlight our current scope of work.

Meet the Team

See Saw Do was born in 2010, from co-founder Xanele Puren's final year project, studying Visual Communication Design.


During the past 8 years, we have grown from a design studio that focuses on transforming child environments with customised mural designs and re-imagined interiors to a studio that now focuses on holistic spatial and environment design, place-making, children's workshops, illustration and facilitating co-design events.


Our core team is made up of Jeremy, Xanelé and Luke (as well as co-workers wirehair terrier Phoebe and the big boss #awesomeBOBcat). We're a tight-knit team that subcontracts and collaborates with various stakeholders according to each project's needs. 


We look forward to meeting and working with you :)
