Welcome to a WIP of my first edition of the SteamDeck. A deck of cards inspired by the steampunk genre, which is quite close to my heart. Starting in 2018, every year I will attempt to evolve the deck as my style evolves, which will hopefully make for some beautiful decks every year. Once this deck is complete, I will soon make it available for download.
Katlego Phatlane graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Visual Communication from The Vega School of Brand Communications and is currently wielding his craft at Joe Public as an Art Director & Digital Artist.
He specializes in typography, hand lettering, digital art, retouching, 3D, and illustration.
Katt’s ability to create vibrant, intricate and hyper-realistic visuals have seen him represent South Africa at the Art Directors Club in New York as one of the brightest talents in Johannesburg and he’s featured across many online platforms like HowDesign, ADC Global, Little Black Book Online, Betype, From Up North, Abduzeedo, 10and5 and many more (see “supporting publications” section).
In 2016, at the young age of 25, his high standard of work was recognised when the Loeries made him one of the youngest judges to ever judge the prestigious event, winning himself a few craft awards along the way. Katt has since been awarded the coveted Black Pixel for Best Digital Youngster by the IAB Bookmarks 2017. An Award defined by the IAB as “A person under 28 who has made a significant contribution to digital through their work”.
