about
robyn

Robyn brings a unique perspective to the design world - born from her time spent living in Japan, China, Los Angeles, and South Africa.

She has spent the last nine years building one of the strongest photographic brands in South Africa, transforming her business from a one-woman show to an award-winning fourteen-member team, and documenting thousands of photoshoots in

that time.

In 2020, with the change of many things, we expanded into graphic design, built a fabulous online store, and grew our photographic

offerings further.

During 2020, the Robyn Davie Creative Studio team expanded their offerings to include graphic and brand design.

They have proudly since then worked with a heap of amazing brands worldwide, building branding and websites for purpose-driven

businesses.

Their aim is to create branding that truly tells a story, through colour palettes that convey warmth and copy that draws the viewer in.

Launched in early 2021, Robyn Davie Creative Studio brings you Fynn Studio - a natural light studio space in the heart of Parktown North, JHB.

The space was created with photographers in mind, the interior emulating the inside of a soft box, and the entire space being a

photographer's dream.

We're honoured to have already hosted so many amazing creatives in this space, and look forward to seeing you there soon.
