Hi! I’m Sonelle, a designer and illustrator from Durban, South Africa. I’m inspired by pop culture and the many symbols and icons in our day-to-day lives. For me, the design should enhance the mundane, and what could be more ordinary than something most of us hold in our hands every day - the humble coffee mug? I’ve combined form, function, and a good dose of crazy to bring these to life.
Mugshots is an ongoing project that I plan on adding to as I go. I hope you like them! If you want to see more of my work, follow me on Behance or find me on Instagram. I might create a custom mugshot just for you!

One small step.

Proudly South African.
Fava beans and a nice chianti.
A good romance.
