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.

Luke, Jeremy + Xanele


See Saw Do was born in 2010, as an extension of co-founder Xanele's final year university project, studying Visual Communication Design at Stellenbosch University.


Over the course of the next ten years, SSD grew from a design studio that focused on transforming child environments with customised mural designs and re-imagined interiors to a studio that focused on holistic spatial and environment design, place-making, children's workshops, illustration and facilitating co-design events.


2020 was See Saw Do's final operational year. Core team members, Luke de Jager, Jeremy Puren and Xanele Bird have since continued working in the child-education realm. Click on the hyperlinks to see what we are up to.
