Collaborate was formed by design duo Christo & Jenny Saggers. This talented husband and wife team live and breath design.
Their first design project was in 2007 when they started designing their long term family home. This project was the culmination of years of individual design projects and the results speak for themselves.
Since then they have worked in a professional capacity designing for clients all over the region.
Collaborate was formed out of a desire to offer a design service with a difference. By taking a Collaborative approach we are able to join design skillsets and deliver a much improved service for the client.
At Collaborate we offer the strength of individual design skill sets that combine under the one roof to be considerably stronger than as an individual element.
