Marelise Jacobs

Nickname: 'Mies'

Creative director and online magazine editor


Currently resides in: Gauteng, South Africa

Born in Johannesburg South Africa

I started my career in design and publishing almost ten years ago. Now, as owner and creative director at Perkolate Online, I get to do all the interesting interviews for our online magazine alongside running the design studio.

My career started in 2007 when I joined Capital Media in Pretoria, a company which falls under the umbrella of Caxton Publishing. During my time there I was promoted to senior graphic designer and eventually transferred to Caxton Magazines in 2014. That was also the same year my husband and I moved to Randburg.

In late 2014 I joined Autotrader, run by CEO George Mini. From there I first embarked on a freelance career before launching my online magazine in 2016. This led to the creation of Perkolate Online Design Studio of which I am the creative director.
