Established in February 1995

After 5 years working at Pentagraph Design, Johan Stockwell started  Stockwell Design as sole proprietor. After one and a half years in business he then registered a Close Corporation called Stoken Design which carried on trading under the Stockwell Design banner.

The business was initially set up from a residential premises in the Fourways Gardens area, opposite the Fourways Shopping Mall. At the end of 1997 we moved to the quiet and picturesque suburb, Lonehill. Then after a further five years, in 2002 we relocated to a quiet cul-de-sac in Sunninghill. Our new premises has a large studio area that can comfortably accomodate 5 staff members. 

We’re perfectly situated to service Tswane, Sandton, Johannesburg, Randburg, East Rand and West Rand.
