3Hounds is a boutique design studio
based in joburg, south africa.
3Hounds was founded in 2011 by me, Kirstin McKenzie. I was fortunate enough to attend the National School of the Arts and it was here where my creativity flourished. I further studied graphic design & animation. My first job was a 3D artist for a South African computer games company called Celestial, having just finished their very successful game "Toxic Bunny" I joined them to make their next game, The Tainted. I then moved onto art directing and animating for various TV Production Houses and Advertising Agencies. I am mostly self-taught and believe in constantly improving my skills.
I have worked on campaigns and commercials for various corporates throughout South Africa like Absa, Standard Bank, FNB, Nedbank, Colgate, Plascon, Tsogo Sun and Peermont to mention a few. I have also done work for FNBQ in Nigeria and helped smaller businesses in New Zealand, UK, Thailand and America. I do a lot of design work for smaller businesses in South Africa, where I develop their corporate brand and animate explainer videos for the services or products they offer.
If you would like to collaborate with me please don't hesitate to contact me, Kirstin McKenzie @ 3Hounds.
