I am Bee-Original

My story

I’m Bregtje Cals, or better known as Bee. I am a freelance creative all-rounder and solo entrepreneur, based in Cape Town, South Africa. I specialize in brand & campaign strategy, design, animated video explainers, web and documentary style film and photography.

I love telling stories, be it in a hand drawn graphic animated style or a more life like documentary film/photography style. I’m passionate about creating beautifully drawn graphics and make them come alive in a playful and entertaining way,  helping brands, companies and organisations to get their vision or product message across to a wide public and raising awareness.

With my background as psychologist and anthropologist I’m able to help you create the most clear, effective and target-group oriented message, while maintaining your core values and personality.

I believe in fresh, unique and playful digital creations. I believe that by telling stories in an original way, we can inspire people, create awareness and trigger action.

I love working with others who are just as passionate about what they do as I am: start-ups, ‘green’ businesses, artists and non-profit organisations or any individual looking for an original way to tell their story.

Being able to tell a great story to the world and raising awareness at the same time is my biggest love, and one day I hope to be able to do so in one of my own documentary projects.

What I do

My approach is hands on and my communication is direct. I believe that working together creates the most exciting results. Therefore I partner up with my clients to fully understand their vision, brand and identity, get to the core of the story and bring it to a higher level with a fresh unique creation. How I can tell your story:

My clients

Some clients I worked with in the last months:

“I searched and I found”. I was looking for someone who could make an animation. Searched in the digital world and found her! How happy I am. Happy with the results, a stunning and carefully made animation. You can see from each image that there is love and attention for the profession. What immediately struck me about Bregtje, know as Bee, is her consistency. In everything she does and shows, the ‘original’ is present.

Besides the creativity, it is nice to work with Bee. She indicates what she is going to do and follows her agreements meticulously. With extra added service. What these are? Discover it yourself, give that compelling and challenging assignment to Bee!’ – Norbert Huijzer

 

 

‘Bregtje is any client’s dream: whatever you ask she will deliver, whenever you strech your demand she will do anything in her power do deliver, and more! Always patient when the creative flow gets rough. Plus her quality of service equals the quality of her products: in my case a wonderful site with great graphics.’ – Sonja Bollen
